Who We Are

Arabic Saturday School is a program designed to motivate students to appreciate the Arabic language and culture by making it a fun learning environment that will enable the students to build on their knowledge as they continue to grow and advance in the levels.

This program is directed by Dr. Shadia Zamlut who specializes in Bilingual Education Curriculum and Instruction. As an expert in the field with many years teaching bilingual students, she designed a curriculum that is both academically rigorous along with fun hands on activities to help students develop a love for learning Arabic that will continue with them as they grow older. Arabic Saturday School will focus on basic conversational skills that students will learn through role play practice of everyday learning situations as well as learning the Arabic alphabet, numbers, and colors through a variety of arts and crafts activities, games and songs. All students in the beginning of the course will be assessed to determine their knowledge of Arabic, which will then be used to create individualized lessons to enable each student to follow their own natural learning path. Finally, at the end of the course, students will be evaluated to determine the progress they made during the course of 8 weeks.

Arabic Saturday School is not affiliated with any religious organization and religion will not be taught.
