Many schools around the UAE are already using the arabee Arabic language programme and have greatly benefitted from the educational structure. Teachers and students enjoy teaching and learning Arabic and have seen a positive impact after implementing the programme. Students attention spans have increased dramatically compared to traditional learning methods used in the past. arabee has multiple learning methods that keep the young minds engaged and inspired through various activities.
Additionally, with the current COVID 19 Pandemic there has been an increase in the demand for online learning and extracurricular activities during lockdown and the arabee programme has proven to be an easy to use solution for parents supporting independent learning for children.
The app has easy to navigate features and children can learn and play without adult supervision. The app offers a variety of activities including fun videos, sing along songs, interactive games and digital reading books.
arabee was built from the ground up by teachers, parents and professionals who wanted to make learning Arabic fun and engaging for children. Lenka Basweidan, Founder of arabee said; “We identified that many children were struggling to learn the Arabic Language which was very concerning for us as parents. There seemed to be a disconnect between the time spent studying Arabic and the amount of language acquired. From research, we quickly learned the following facts:
- Majority of children were NOT enjoying Arabic lessons
- Unlike other modern foreign languages, after years studying Arabic many children could not communicate in Arabic
- Teachers were spending valuable time planning and creating resources and had less time for teaching
- Many parents were unable to help their children because they could not understand Arabic themselves.
- Parents consistently ranked Arabic as an area of frustration in their children’s education and that the materials being used in the classroom were not exciting enough to keep young minds engaged and interested.
This helped us understand that there was a gap in the Arabic language learning sector, leading us to create the arabee brand with a team of professional educators and backed by reputable investors.”
arabee are actively seeking and engaging investors for their future expansion plans and building partnerships with companies and like-minded individuals. In the last year, they have won grant awards from The Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Sheraa and StartAD (NYUAD).
