This time, there were only eleven participants - the least number of people participating in a course, ever. There were only three people who came from the first batch and the rest were from other cohorts.
The session was basically divided into two: the Arabic Language Curriculum and learning the Arabic Language itself. For the first part, participants were briefed on issues like class observation, school-based assessment (PBS), constructing module for classroom, and innovative ways of language teaching. The more challenging part for people who have very little background of Arabic language, like me, would be learning the grammar of the Arabic language. I must say, for foreign language learners, it is not an easy language to learn - without hard work and determination.

I guess I have to put more effort and discipline to learn the Arabic language, the language of the holy Koran.
