This is Sarf class teacher's skype username: [EDITED - Skype ID removed]

JazakAllah for your efforts.

Please do not give other members contact details including Skype ID in public like this. The members interested in phoenix's Arabic class can contact her by PM or can leave their contact details on her profile if not Advanced Members. You should also make it clear, to avoid confusion, that phoenix's class and the Howza ones that you have planned to initiate are not related.

before doing this, I used to ask her if I'm allowed to introduce her class or not.

while although as I wanted to refer him/her to her, but I saw he/she is not an advance member.

and for the second point, we're gonna teach basic howza for now, then if she left teaching Nahw, so we can make a new class time for teaching Nahw.

Thanks for reply...

wassalam

(salam)

before doing this, I used to ask her if I'm allowed to introduce her class or not.

while although as I wanted to refer him/her to her, but I saw he/she is not an advance member.

I had not noticed this thread (although you did inform me that you had started one) and I was sent a PM in regards to my Skype ID having been publicised here.

In response to your own PM, I did give permission to talk about the class being held but I suppose you misunderstood that to mean you could reveal my private information as well?

Also, basic members can always leave comments. My wall is open for that. I can find ways to get in touch with them once they have initiated.

To anyone interested in this:

First, classical Arabic grammar is not a breeze. Teaching over the Internet has its many limitations, coupled with the fact that I being a female do not make use of video << this especially is a major hurdle since demonstrating the rules in person enables students to have a much more comprehensive grasp of the subject being taught. In short, Arabic is more a visual subject of study than one understood aurally (without visual aids).

Second, we have already been through eleven sessions by now and have covered quite some amount of TaSreef (currently we are focusing on this and will move to Nahw after we are finished with it). Anybody who wishes to join at this stage will have to be determined enough to cope up with what they have missed, without causing too much inconvenience to those who have been in this from the start. I have seen quite a few people leave because of their yo-yo attendance due to multifarious reasons and this can be very distracting for others, and to maintaining a good pace for study of the subject.

Third, this class is not for those new to Arabic, who can barely read the script or sentences.

Fourth, commitment is important. Recordings are not available for those outside of the class and while they are to students, their availability is not to be taken advantage of to bunk classes on a regular basis, with or without reason.

Lastly, the above is not meant to discourage anyone but to give you a general idea of what you might be getting into should you want to join.

Cheerio!

ok inshallah all are informed enough about the once a week Basic Arabic class (Sarf) and the ways to attend.

but about the other classes:

at the moment we're gonna have 2 classes :

1- Basic Arabic which is 5 sessions per week and it would take long about 2-3 month inshallah.

2- Islamic Kalaam (Theology) by seyyed Hashemi, the MA student of Islamic philosophy which is 2 sessions per week and would be commenced on 11 January- 4 PM GMT

* After finishing these classes, other howza course like Nahw and Osoul and Islam History or Quran history would be held Inshallah.

* P.S: learning other howza courses depends on learning Arabic well...so try not to be absent in Sarf & Nahw classes.

wassalam

Ok, can someone alert me please when the basic Arabic class and kalaam begin? Judging by Pheonix's description, I would not be able to join that class just yet. I know no Arabic. Is it possible to take both basic arabic and kalaam classes at once (meaning will kalaam be taught in english)? JazakAllah khair.

I am interested and would like to sign up to the 1 session per week classes for learning basic Arabic - although I can read it I'm guessing there will be some meanings of different words revealed - that sort of thing.

Could someone please PM me and let me know what I need (Skype etc) and when I can begin to attend?

I think an "overall" and final update needs to be sent with times, dates, type of class and who the lecturer will be so we know who to PM and get further details from.

Looking forward to it...

Salaam Aleikum,

Is it possible to record all the lectures of 5 session of week? It will benefit so much of those who do not have time to attain in 4pm class.

Jazakullah Kahir for your efforts.

Alaikum Assalam

yes inshallah we try to upload the Sarf classes, either the video or Audio and would provide the download link inshallah.

but about Kalaam class, inshallah we try to do that too ...

WA wr wb,

So do you plan on starting with basics of Arabic? If so, I am in, insha`Allah. The only obstacle I see at this time is that I get back from my trip on the 17th of January. It would be nice if you have the lessons recorded so that those who cannot attend the live session can catch up on there own.

Some of the other online Arabic classes aren't recorded, as far as I know; this can be a hindrance to overall success. You know like I know that if a student misses one foreign language class, it is kind of like math, the accumulations are sometimes hard to weather, hence the need for a teacher. If we use technology to teach a class, we can further it by usage of recordings, insha`Allah.
