Classes start on the 20th January 2019 at Mountview Mosque in-sha-Allah
What is this course about?
This course aims to equip a student who has no Arabic background with the ability to understand the Quran directly in the Arabic language.
What level of Arabic do I need?
Students are expected to have a basic ability to read Arabic. Even if the student is able to read with difficulty this will be sufficient to join the course
Do you teach Qur'an reading?
No, we do not teach Qur’an reading, tajweed or memorisation. Our focus is on teaching Arabic to understand the meanings of the Qur’an
When and where are classes?
Classes are held at Mountview Masjid (Warden Crescent) in Cape Town. Classes are held from 8:30 to 12pm on Sunday mornings. We generally have on or two Sundays off during the school holidays and Ramadaan.
I am not able to attend all classes - what can I do to catch up?
All classes are audio live-streamed as well as audio recorded. We also email students all the presentations, worksheets and links to the audio of each class. In 2018 the first year class will be video live streamed and a video recording will be made available to students. In addition students are also able to book a private tutor at a nominal cost.
I don't live in Cape Town - Do you offer online classes?
In 2018 we plan to offer an online version of the class where students are able to follow the classes via live or recorded video as well as receive a dedicated online revision session each week.
When do registrations close?
The class begins at the end of January and we ask students to register before then. However we will keep registration open beyond this date as long as there is physical space available in the classroom.
Can I come sit in a class before deciding to register?
Yes prospective students are welcome to sit-in during any current classes and observe a class before deciding to register. Please contact our administration to arrange an observation slot.
What happens after I complete the registration form?
You will receive a confirmation email with further information including our banking details. Final confirmation will be issued on receipt of registration payment. If you do not hear from us with 5 working days please email our administration.
