Arabic

Arabic is the official language of over 20 countries and there are well over 375 million native speakers of the language. These speakers are largely concentrated in the Middle East, but there are minority groups of native speakers throughout the world. It is also an official language of the United Nations, the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Conference, and the African Union. For this reason and as a school in the Middle East, SMM believes that learning the language would open many opportunities and would prepare the students in the career challenges that the world might offer.

LANGUAGE FOCUS

Four skills should be implemented in each and every classroom and should be assessed on a weekly and monthly basis. Students are trained to learn independently through researched-based tasks, presenting tasks and links the tasks to real life scenarios.
