Villagers in four-week high school credit-bearing sessions gain an academic year’s worth of language and culture skills through an immersion experience embedded in daily life, featuring a variety of cultural activities as well as formal study and assessment (minimum of 180 instructional hours; accredited by Cognia). Emphasis is on literacy and oracy. This program is open to students entering grades 9-12, and is open to all proficiency levels.
The credit program at Al-Wāḥa is a challenging and rewarding experience. Every activity is conducted in Arabic, providing an opportunity to learn more of the language within a cultural context. Every two weeks, the credit villagers take exams, and almost every night they have homework. Many of the final projects are kept in Al-Wāḥa as Arabic decorations or for teaching purposes and serve as a great reminder of credit villagers’ lasting impact on the program.
