Arabic العَرَبِيةُ is the classical language of the sixth century, a time frame that coincides with birth and early life of the prophet Mohammad (pbuh). Arabic derives from the Afro-asiatic family of languages and is spoken by 300 million people across the world and mainly in North Africa, the Middle East, and the horn of Africa. The globalized nature of education, economics, trade, and politics have shown that learning a second language is a critical component of understanding other cultures and establishing a universal career path. The Arabic Alphabet الحُرُوف العَرَبِيَّة is made of 28 letters and is written from right to left in a cursive style where vowels are placed above or below the letters. In this module students will learn brief history and fun facts about the Arabic language. Students will also learn the Arabic Alphabet and numbers.
