At ICC Community School we begin teaching the Arabic language from preschool. Usually when children begin preschool they have not been exposed to reading and writing the Arabic language before. Keeping that in mind, teaching at this stage will expose the student to what they need in their daily routine.

· Building vocabulary progressively by using educational games and listening to educational Islamic songs

In the Arabic language program, we teach Arabic with the goals of the developing reading, writing and speaking ability of the students. We teach vocabulary that is useful and meaningful to them using the themes and values of the month. With these skills the students will have the tools needed to read the Quran with understanding and to know Arabic as a second language.
