Arabic @ Safari Kid
1½ years and older
The Safari Kid Arabic Program has been specifically put together to mirror the goals of our Accelerated Learning Program in English. The main features of our Arabic Program are:
- Classical Arabic characters are employed.
- Arabic time during the day (20-30 minutes each day in the Half-Day Program, and a further 70 minutes in the Extended Day Program) mirrors the English program in structure. So, for example, as our Level Two children learn to write three letter words in English, they will be learning to write in Arabic as well. Stories used during the English program are then used during Arabic time, so children can contextualise the language and learn it faster.
- Stress is placed on developing social communication skills in Arabic as well, by conducting social activities such as snack time, lunch time or part of the free play time in Arabic.
- Children progress from Level 1 to 2 in Arabic, as they do in our main program.
In our Extended Day and Full Day program, parents who opt for Arabic can expect children to attend 70 minute classes conducted exclusively in Arabic. These sessions include further practice in reading, writing and speaking; public speaking and confidence building modules in Arabic; math instructions in Arabic and games and activities to enhance social and emotional development, conducted in Arabic.
Accelerated Learning Programs
The definition of Accelerated Learning goes hand in hand with our mission. Accelerated Learning is the most advanced teaching and learning method in use today. It’s a total system for speeding and enhancing the learning processes. Based on the latest neurological research, it has been repeatedly proven to increase learning effectiveness.
What makes our Accelerated Learning program so effective is that it’s based on the way we all naturally learn. Accelerated Learning unlocks much of the potential for learning that has been left largely untapped by most conventional learning methods. It does this by actively involving your child, using physical activity, creativity, music, images, color, and other methods designed to get children deeply involved in their own learning.
