It is common knowledge that learning a language while young enables a person to grasp it more easily and become a native speaker of it. This is why so many teach their younger children a language during their informative years so that they can become fluent in a given language. Almost all Arabic speakers and learners of Arabic language agree that it is a difficult language to master with all its complexities. However, when a child learns it at a younger age, the higher chance they will gain mastery over it.

What lingual skills are taught in the I Love Arabic program:
Basically, the four main lingual skills are focused upon: reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Proper emphasis has been given to each since it is through these skills that a language is learned. When a young student engages in exercises that employ these language skills, it is then that a language is integrated into their mind and becomes a language that they have command over. In beginning levels, speaking and listening skills have a stronger emphasis since it is vitally important to hear and use the language to grasp it, for these skills need to be sharpened at a young level, while reading and writing skills predominantly influence grade levels third through sixth. It is through this approach that language skills are more aptly learned, grasped, and applied. It has been found that when language has been taught this way that the student more easily grasps and uses new found language skills with confidence and command.
