This is the most comprehensive curriculum for teaching Arabic to students in Islamic schools in the West. The author's experience living and teaching in North America influenced the curriculum, which focuses on similar letters, reading and comprehension, creative writing exercises, ordering, pronunciation, filling in the missing letter, and matching time and gender.
