Full course description

In celebration of the Hawza Programme’s relaunch, the Al-Mahdi Institute is offering 65% off across all our courses. To benefit from this fee reduction, use the code AMIHP65 when purchasing access to the course.

As a registered charity, we charge a fee for each course to cover our running costs. However, we aim to provide our education to as many people as possible. Students are therefore encouraged to get in touch if they require further fee waivers. Contact the Education Manager at education@almahdi.edu.

 

This level three course is the final Arabic language and grammar course taught at AMI. This course builds upon the skills developed in the first two courses by exposing students to a variety of literary texts to help consolidate their reading and comprehension skills. This is complimented by further training in Arabic grammar. By the end of this course, students should have an advanced level of proficiency in the Arabic language and should be able to decipher classical texts relevant to their Hawza studies at AMI and beyond.
