I love the blend of practising speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary and grammar in Kalamna classes. You are bringing so many levels of language education into it but very subtly through making it all fun - just writing their names or colouring in the sheets or reading the stories etc. Really well done I’m impressed and it’s such a help in trying to keep my son interested in Arabic. Especially on the weeks where by Saturday it’s like he will never speak Arabic again and then Sunday afternoon he’s saying “shukran ya mama” with a smile!

My daughter absolutely loves the classes Kalamna offers online and the teaching style is so engaging and fun for the kids. I can see her progressing and becoming more confident in the language. Such a fantastic business!

I have been engaged with Kalamna CIC since the beginning first as a volunteer and now my son has been attending the classes since he was 6 months old! I cannot recommend it more as it departs from the 'traditional' Arabic teaching style to make it more interactive, relevant and FUN! The teaching material is unique as it is tailored to the children's interests. The class is also a mix of activities, videos, lessons which renders it super exciting - even for a 6 m old baby! Now at almost 2 years, my son recognizes many words in Arabic and that is thanks to Kalamna! thanks for your excellence!
