FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Some questions we frequently get asked.

WHICH ARABIC DO YOU TEACH?

You might be refering to different Arabic accents. But those are not written accents. What we teach is the only Arabic out there. Some people call it classic Arabic, others call it standard Arabic. It’s also fully unsderstood by any Arabic on the street.
Simply put, it’s the same Arabic that Arabs read and write at every school. It’s also the same Arab in every book in Arabic since the dawn of Islam over 1400 years ago. 

HOW DO I KNOW MY KIDS WILL LIKE YOUR SCHOOL? IS THERE A WAY TO FIND OUT FIRSTHAND?

Of course! We offer a free session where you sit on a comfy leather couch next room while the children interact with our teacher Nada; She also uses this opportunity to assess their level against our curriculum to know where to place them with children of similar level.

ARE YOUR PRICES COMPETITIVE VS. OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE AREA?

We think we have really set a very competitive price structure, but you need to factor in the “real” time your child spends learning. What we mean is that:
1. You have to find out the net time that your kids spend in the classroom VS. the total time they spend at the school, and that’s a rather crude “Quantitative” way to measure price..
2. We rather look at this from a “Qualitative” perspective as it matters more not what number of hours your child spend at a school but how much he/she improves in Arabic say after one year in our classes, which is what really matters. More on that below.

WHAT ARE THE FESS?

In line with our teaching style, our classes have a very small number of students from 2 to 5. The fee is CAD 20/hour/child (minimum children 2 per class). Minimum session is 2 hours per week.

We expect your child to start reading and writing Arabic within a year or less. This of course depends on your child but we had similar experiences.

Payment is made prior to the start of each Quarter.

WHAT HAPPENS N CASE OUR CHILD CAN'T ATTEND?

Any unattended class is rescheduled as long as we are notified 24-hours or ealier by phone or email. Couldn’t reschedule all missed classes? we deduct the reamining  from your next invoice.

HOW MUCH DIRECT SUPERVISION DO WE EXPECT OUR CHILD TO HAVE IN YOUR CLASS?

We take pride in the rapid improvement parents are witnessing in their children only after few weeks with us. In fact we’re getting superior results from our students because we use “tutoring-based” classes. It’s the closest thing to a one-to-one session; Our classes range from 2 to 5 with an average 3 students per class. This means that a child gets maximum exposure to the material and almost continuous supervision from the teacher; Something that is very hard with a big class.

BUT OUR KIDS ARE SAYING THEY ALSO LIKE TO PLAY WITH THEIR FRIENDS DURING RECESS?

I’m glad you brought that up! We do offer short breaks in order to get them up and running again, and with the added value of our supervision. But we’ve noticed that the real bonding is happening during the class itself, reinforcing the direct link between their friendship and Arabic.
In reality the whole class is a fun experience, and many children look forward to the weekend to come and play in Arabic!

NOW YOU GOT ME EXCITED? SO WHAT AGE GROUP DO YOU ACCEPT AT YOUR SCHOOL?

I know! You actually you should see the other parents who already have enrolled their children; they are elated at how fast their children improved in a relative short period of tme. Quality-wise we don’t think anything like this is available in Metro Vancouver area. We accept children form 5 to 15 years.
