Classical Arabic classes for the children of immigrants of Moroccan origin
In the second fortnight of September, and resuming the awareness activities within the Alqantara programme, the Fundación Tres Culturas will set up a new classical Arabic course directed towards the sons and daughters of immigrants of Moroccan origin who want to learn and put their parents’ source language into practice.
The main goal of these Arabic classes is to prevent the youngest members of the Moroccan families from losing contact with their roots, given that they already know the Darija, the language spoken in Morocco and within the family nucleus, but they do not know classical or international Arabic, which is currently the most used in the Arab world for the press, television, books…
The programme lasts for three months and will allow these students from the Lepe area, in Huelva, where the classes will be given, to learn the basics of classical or “Fusha” Arabic. Basic linguistic aspects will be worked, liked how to learn the alphabet, increase their vocabulary, an introduction to writing, reading and some grammar structures that will allow them to function in every day, social situations.
The courses are totally free for the students and they will consist of two groups of four weekly sessions of 90 minutes. The number of students that will be able to enrol is 20 in order to get the best learning results.
