Arabic Studies

Australian Islamic College Adelaide - Arabic Language Program

The Arabic language program at AIC Adelaide is based on the SACSA Framework (South Australian Standards & Accountability Framework) in the primary and middle schools and on SSABSA's requirements (Senior Secondary Assessment Board of South Australia) in the senior school. It is designed to teach students from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds to communicate effectively in Arabic and to better understand the Arabic language and its culture. The program contributes significantly to the objectives of AIC Adelaide, which aim to facilitate and enhance students' appreciation of the teachings of the Holy Quran. A student - centred approach is used in the Arabic classroom. We facilitates students' interaction with each other and exposes them to spoken and written texts at varying levels of complexity. We help students to develop a level of language proficiency that will allow them to express themselves in Arabic, both through speaking and writing. Thus, a high level of linguistic sophistication gives students the confidence not only to communicate in Arabic, but also to explore and appreciate its culture.


I feel proud Ma Sha Allah my children are going to this college where there is no discrimination of race or status, where humanity and modesty are obviously radiant, where there is no bullying and simplicity takes pride. I know there may be some other better schools for worldly education but as one of my friends says isn't it good enough if our children are educating and developing a desire and habit of saying Salah with congregation! Indeed it is good enough. Jazak Allah Khair to all the staff/ board members making efforts to blossom this school even better. May Allah give you huge rewards in this world and the hereafter.

It is with great pleasure that I am writing this testimonial for Australian Islamic College Adelaide. Over the past 8 years my four children have been attending Australian Islamic College Adelaide and to say they have enjoyed their time there is an understatement. They have thrived in this environment. AICA's wonderful staff make each and every child feels being special and unique whilst providing them with excellent academic skills needed as they make transition from reception to “High School”. This is exactly what I as a parent want for my children. The genuine affection and concern that the staff show to the children make AICA a child’s “home away from home”. I know it is rare to find a place with all these outstanding qualities that's why I can recommend Australian Islamic College Adelaide to friends, family and anyone who wants a wonderful caring and learning environment for their children.

Our daughter has been attending Islamic College Pre-Primary for six months and she absolutely loves it! She would walk herself to School if she was able to. The teachers' friendly, nurturing and professional manner helped her settle into pre-primary school routines quickly. Her skills in interpersonal relationships and communication have developed immensely. She now happily communicates with her peers and shares her wants, needs and frustrations more effectively.
