What if my children/students could enjoy and love learning Arabic more?
What if my child/student could see how Arabic is meaningful and relevant to his/her life, how it is a LIVING language and not a dead language that is only read and written and kept in notebooks?
What if, from the earliest years, I could naturally expose my children/students to Arabic grammar and vocabulary, and lay a great foundation for (future) formal lessons?
What if, as a non-native speaking parent, I could learn vocabulary and key phrases alongside my children in order to reuse the language in our life and really acquire it?
What if I could have access to resources adapted to non-native speakers, with the necessary harakat (“vowels”) in the Arabic text, with some useful translations and oh! with Arabic voice records to hear the correct pronunciation?!
I am already so busy and overwhelmed! What if I could save time and have access to a year (and more!) of organized, engaging, quality Arabic teaching resources in one place?!
I could hear myself in almost all of these statements… and that’s why I launched Arabic Seeds in 2015 when, as a non-native speaking mom, I realized how using Arabic in my daily life with my three year-old boosted my own learning and made Arabic a natural and relevant language for my little one – walhamdulillAh!

Arabic Seeds was founded by a non-native speaker who knows the struggles…
* Our videos are in Arabic only to make learners focus on the listening/speaking skills.
** We don’t provide English transliterations of the Arabic words and texts in our resources. Why? We think that transliterations can be misleading (Arabic sounds not existing in English) and can prevent learners from moving towards Arabic reading fluency (because they are always relying on the English alphabet instead of diving into the real Arabic alphabet). Instead we provide Arabic read-aloud videos and audios to help.
Through our knowledge about language acquisition, our experiences as parents raising a multilingual family & using Arabic with their children from baby age, through our experiences as an adult Arabic learner (for our founder) and as an Arabic teacher (for our proofreader), we believe in a practical, whole-language exposure’s approach from the early years.
From baby age, children should be exposed to Arabic daily through play, talking to them in Arabic, rhymes, book read-alouds etc. Then, once they are ready developmentally and Arabic is part of their life, reading and writing practices can be introduced (usually around 5-7 years old but each child is different).
This would be the ideal situation and we encourage you to do so, but we know that not everyone can achieve this (especially non-native speakers) and we are here to help you get closer to it!
We design our resources to help you incorporate Arabic into your children/students’ life, make them live and love Arabic and make them practice the 4 language skills through topics inspired by kids and real life.
Arabic Seeds has been founded by a non-native speaker who knows the struggles of finding adapted resources and of learning Arabic as an adult. That’s why, we create resources with special features for non-native speakers:
However, we recommend that you, at least, know how to read and write in Arabic as well as some basic grammar.
But we suggest that our resources are most suitable for children from 3 to 8 years old. They may be suitable for older beginner children as well. And many non-native speaking parents have reported to us that they are also learning alongside their children.
For instance, a 3 year-old won’t be requested to read our books or other texts, or write sentences, but the teaching will be done through read-alouds of our books by the parent/teacher, playing with our flashcards and talking, watching our short videos (listen & repeat), tracing/colouring letters and words (simple worksheets), and integrating what has been learned in real-life. Later on, the teacher/parent can go back to the same resources when the child is older in order to review what has been learned and to involve him/her in more challenging activities.
Our resources does not include Arabic grammar lessons, but they expose young children to the whole language (which includes grammar structures, full sentences and vocabulary) so that young learners feel confident and understand the language before they reach the age of “strict” grammar lessons.
We want our platform to be a safe space for our young members. That’s why our website and resources do not contain any ads and music.
We also filter and manually approve comments posted in our membership pages so that our website’s content stay safe and appropriate for children.
Yes, one membership subscription can be used for all your children. You don’t need to buy one subscription per child.
We allow a teacher to use one subscription for her/his classroom’s needs up to 35 students. The same goes for a playgroup leader or homeschool co-op leader.
You can print a resource several times for all the children in your class or group. And let them watch our videos and play our online games as well.
Contact us if you have questions regarding your own specific circumstances (teaching moved online due to pandemic etc.)
Contact us if you intend to use our resources for your charity, organization, school (off or online). We will be glad to discuss with you to offer you a solution (bulk price, incentive, discounted price) suitable for your particular size, needs and circumstances.
Our website is mobile-responsive and can be used with all kinds of devices, especially our video pages and online games.
However, for the member home and resources libraries, we recommend that you use a desktop/laptop in order for you to better see the organization of the content.
Our resources are all digital. You won’t receive a physical product.
Our videos and online games are not downloadable.
