I really enjoyed the way in which the readings would be pre-prepared with vocabulary, and the reading selections chosen with erudition to facilitate language acquisition. The questions and writing sections I found quite beneficial and they improved my Arabic writing quite significantly.
As for tajweed, I was quite satisfied with the texts we used and the instructor explained things quite well. The text was at my level, and practising the rules helped me quite a lot. Furthermore, the instructor made extremely helpful charts and graphs on the whiteboard to explain important concepts in Tajweed which I found immensely helpful.
The instructor was extremely knowledgeable in classical Arabic and I really appreciated how much time and effort she put into my lesson planning. Having been trained as a teacher myself in University, and have taught English as a second language, I can really deeply understand and appreciate all the time she put into the lesson planning for me. It not only showed commitment to her job, but also her knowledge and experience
