We are looking for an Arabic Saturday school that is NOT teaching the Quran. I have fond only two in London, the one in Ealing and the one in Portobello road... Both are a bit of a trek from North London.
Any thing else closer to us? Someone told me about one in Paddington or Swiss cottage but i can't find anything about it on the web.

HEY! So i do realise this thread is fairly old... but if it's appearing on my google search it's definitely appearing on other people's and it still hasn't been answered! i do have an answer though!

I run a Saturday language club for kids (The London Arabic Kids' Club) in Notting Hill Gate, very accessible to those living in and around the area, we are an unconventional club that teaches the Arabic language without the use of textbooks and instead via the use of creativity and play. We do offer Qur'an lessons but it is OPTIONAL, as we try to cater for all smile

Does anyone know if an Arabic-speaking playgroup ever took off? Preferred around Highgate/ Islington/ Shoreditch/ Hackney but willing to travel. My first one is 22 months and is starting to need Arabic-speaking friends to realise that there are other children who speak Arabic - his de facto first language is English but we'd like to allow him to grow up properly bilingual.

Hampstead hill vs NBH

Hello, I am a huge fan of Hampstead hill. Love it. DD goes and is very HAPPY

What about NBH?
Anyone ever take a child out of HHS to go there?
And is it better than Devinshire house?
Thank you.

I am really interested in a secular Arabic class for my daughter who is 4 years old in Crouch End or Muswell Hill. Any after school club or Saturday class would be perfect. Many thanks

Hi, we found a Morrocan nanny and she came for a while but once a week was not enough. and it was a bit awkward for her as she had to help me with the evening routine and it was hard for her to teach as well as help.

Id be happy to do something though im not too keen on my children spending their saturday morning at school. Not keen on travelling either!
maybe a one hour classe after school during the week.
I happen to know someone who teaches at an arabic school on a saturday... so i could ask her maybe.
How many people would be interested in organising something say every tuesday 4.15 til 5.15pm (or 4.30 -5.30) in the Crouch end/muswell hill / highgate area? Feel free to pm me. smile

Was wondering if you managed to find an Arabic Sat school in North London? I am looking for one for my kids but can't find any unless its a whole Sat until 3/4 pm and always religious based.
I was wondering if you knew many people interested in Arabic classes on a Sat morning from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm. I might be interested in finding out if its worth opening one! but not sure how much demand their is. Can anyone let me know if you know anyone interested? I live in Highgate so I would like to pick a place not too far from my area.

Arabic Club for Kids:
Ealing Arabic School:

Both have Quran as optional. You can opt-out if you wish too. Note the first teaches just Quran, whereas the second religion.

Hello! Just picking up on this thread ... Did anyone find / set up a secular Arabic playgroup or Saturday school in London?

Rhianna1980 Mon 28-Oct-13 23:58:43

Sorry the full title is :
Arabic nursery rhymes & songs release date 1976
There are lots of other albums with similar title but look at the release date . Normally it comes at the top results of your search on iTunes .

Rhianna1980 Mon 28-Oct-13 23:53:46

For those who are looking for Arabic nursery music , can I suggest an album on iTunes called Arabic nursery rhymes. I grew up with it . It is quite old , made in 1976, but it is considered a classic. Most nurseries still use them where I was brought up. The album comes with a 2 copies of each song : the original song and the same track with just the music so your child can sing to once they know the lyrics.
I still love listening to it ;)

Hi, I was just wondering if you ever managed to start this playgroup? I have a 15-month old son (I'm British and Dad is Lebanese). He speaks Arabic to the little man as much as poss but I would love to attend a playgroup for more exposure to the language. Would be happy to contribute towards costs etc. Please let me know...
