LEVEL GRADED METHODOLOGY
Globalisation of Arabic is a software for all ages. Level Graded Methodology is used to distinguish the levels among learners. There are four Levels. Pink is used for a beginner who wants to learn from the alphabet. This level can make a learner read Arabic text and also the Holy Qurán. They will be able to write Arabic too. Blue is the next level. Learners who knows to read Quran can skip Pink Level and go straight to Blue level. The blue level is the gateway to the Foundation in Arabic. The third Orange and the fourth Green levels are for those who wants to learn Arabic Language in detail.
COLOUR GUIDED LEVEL SELECTION
This software is powered with direct multi access ‘level graded methodology’ using sequential design process. The progress of the lesson is seen from flowing steadily downwards based on levels. A leaner can select any titles, sub titles, topics etc., at his own choice. One can go from any topic from the top to the bottom or vice versa. It is totally a Global Cositex (Computer Simulated Textbook).
SYNCHRONISATION OF PEDAGOGY
Articulation is the movement of the tongue, lips, jaw, and other speech organs in order to make speech sounds. Sound is produced simply by expelling air from the lungs. All the letters of Arabic are placed at the correct position for articulation. Each letter that articulates is shown by animation with voice activation.
WRITE OVER CALLIGRAPHY
You can practice writing on the screen – a new an unique concept. You will be able to write on shadow letters with a mouse or directly on the touch screen with your finger. Where to begin writing a letter, how to continue and where to end it are shown clearly. Correct sequence and direction of strokes and dots are clearly shown.
Practice writing of three positions of Arabic letters.
ANNEXING, DOTTING, DIACRITIC MARKING
Annexing is the joining of the three different positions of each letter to form a word. Dotting is putting dot or dots for the letters that have dot or dots. Diacritic marking is putting the diacritic marks on the letters of the word. These three features are animated and also have the option repeat and show annexing, dotting and diacritic marking.
COGNATIVE CONCEPTS IMPLIED FOR EFFICIENT LEARNING
Cognitive concepts of ‘Thinking, Remembering and Reasoning is well focused to visualise the concepts of think, remember and reason out. The example here shows the joining of letters. Stand alone letters cannot simply join each other. The letter has its own positions. The learner can easily understand how the letters are joined by this cognitive concepts.
BRAIN ENERGISING CONCEPTS
PHONETIC RENDERING – PRONUNCIATION
SIMPLE SPONTANEOUS & SCIENTIFIC
Just a click on the pronoun displays the correct sentence in English. Clicking on the English displays the correct Arabic sentence. The pronoun selection is programmed for the selection of the correct verb – to be and the correct number – singular, dual or plural, the correct gender – masculine or feminine. The scientific concepts of conjugation, number, gender etc., are incorporated here.
The assessment is to focus on the individual learner, based on the theoretical framework of the lessons. It is an assessment to Inform and Improve students’ performance. The assessment gives a more accurate picture of students’ abilities. These new performance based assessments force students to demonstrate their skill & knowledge of the language. This assessment can bring out the best in them. It is a totally new opening to e-assessment.
Animations are a technique of visualisation. It is an innovative, constructivist and students-centred. Animation teaching gives positive impact on understanding of abstract and invisible processes that are difficult to visualise. It improves students’ learning motivation. The visual illustration makes it possible to prevent the formation of students’ misconceptions and to guide them to the new knowledge.
PRECISE PRÉCIS GRAMMAR METHODOLOGY
Goal is a full fledged graphic platform software using precise precis methodology. It contain all the essential thoughts and ideas and they are rhetorically incorporated in a clear, precise manner. The grammar is thought intelligently with precision and without flawless and with all the absolute essential points for clear understanding.
Adjective is a word that describes a noun.
A Pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun.
Case endings are markings that are attached to the ends of words to indicate the words ‘grammatical function’.
A particle is a word that connects nouns/pronouns, showing their relationship.
GRAMMAR WORD BLOCK
PERMUTATION OF PARADIGM
The grammar embedded platform is a paradigm for learners. It makes the learner to use the correct way of writing Arabic sentences through the arrangement of Grammar word block. Through these typical examples of grammatical patterns a student need not worry about the constructions of grammatical Arabic sentence.
SHEER MAGIC OF CONJUGATIONAL PERMUTATION FOR VOCABULARY BUILDING
The variation of the Verb by the tense, number, person and the variation of Noun or Pronoun by case, number, and gender has direct multi-access to any verb, its conjugation; to any noun and its declension, or their combination. Sheer magic of permutation of paradigm! What’s exciting is: out of about 150 words, you can create over 100,000 Grammar Word Blocks. You CAN do it. Your concentration, comprehension and creativity will take you a long way. We give you the runway, you take off.
RHYTHMIC VERBAL MEMORY TRAINING
GRAMMAR EMBODIED AND INBUILT
KhanSoft methodology takes adequate care of how the language works (grammar). In usage, grammar is inbuilt: the learner learns the rules of grammar, not only theoretically but practically. The rules of grammar, however, are NEVER out of sight but given due importance. Even a perfunctory perusal of the lexical pattern and grammatical paradigms attunes the usage of Arabic. Grammar is embodied in usage and the learner imbibes, practically, the rules of grammar, imperceptibly. Grammar gets subtly into his system.
COLOUR CODE GRAMMAR
FLEXIBLE TOGGLING BETWEEN LANGUAGES
GOAL is full-fledged graphic software. The bilingual text is made into buttons for flexible toggling. Toggling switches from the current setting to the other setting by pointing to the toggle with the mouse and then clicking.
Globalisation of Arabic Learning is a software for global learning of Arabic Language. In order to accommodate the national language of a country there is an option for Trilingual learning of Arabic Language. GOAL will be available in English, Arabic and the National Language of the country. The trilingual software is 100% interactive and 100% trilingual toggling. Every separate word, grammar word block and the sentences are trilingual. The learner can toggle from English to Arabic and to the national language of the country. (Now available in English, Arabic and Bahasa Melayu & English, Arabic and Tamil.)
COMMUNICATION PRACTICES INBUILT
Communication practices include all ways of ensuring that your voice is heard – by different people, in different languages, at different levels, in different contexts and at different times. A learner after completing the course should be able to communicate with ease. More to come……..
