Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need to know some Arabic to join Dar Al-Alim?

No! Dar Al-Alim has been designed for beginners. We also have an extra module which can help you read and write if you are unable to. Ask our team for more details by clicking here.

  • Who is going to be my teacher?

You will learn with a friendly native Arab teacher who is highly qualified in teaching Arabic and then rigorously trained for quality by Dar Al-Alim teaching directors.

  • Do you have both male and female teachers?

Yes. We have highly qualified and friendly male and female teachers.

  • Do you offer group lessons?

No. We believe that the best and fastest way to learn Arabic is to have a teacher who will teach you one-to-one. This way, your instructor can focus on your weaknesses and build upon your strengths. Also, we find that many students can get shy in front of other students and are afraid to make mistakes. With one-to-one tuition, this problem disappears.

  • What time are my lessons?

You will study five (5) days a week at the time that you select after enrolling.

  • Do I get the course books?

Yes. We send to you the course books no matter where you are in the world. Depending on where you are in the world, they may take a couple of weeks to reach you— but fear not, you will be able to start learning straight away with your teacher even before your books arrive.

  • How much time do I need to dedicate to my course?

Each lesson is one (1) hour per day, five (5) days per week. You will also be expected to revise before each lesson and complete any homework to ensure maximum efficiency in learning Arabic.

  • I live in— can I still take this course?

Yes. This course is available to anyone with an internet connection— anywhere in the world.

  • What if I change my mind and decide that Dar Al-Alim is not for me?

We have a 100% Money-Back Guarantee. If you find that this course is not for you, simply write to within the first week of starting and we will give you you full course fees back.

  • Will I get a certificate at the end of the course?

Yes. Students who complete the course will receive a certificate of completion along with their grade.

  • What if I need to miss any lessons?

We do expect all our students try their best not to miss any classes but we also recognise that— now and then— it is possible that you will have to miss a class for emergencies or other important reasons.

  • Do I get any holidays?

Yes. You will get the last ten (10) nights of Ramadan off plus three (3) days of Eid for both ends.
