The course is designed to allow individuals to progress at their own pace, with tutor support.

Term 2 - 10 Weeks- The second term will consolidate the previous term’s knowledge and learning. Further explanation will be on made on certain letters and attributes (ل (Lām),ر (Rā), م and ن (Mīm) and (Nūn)). Greater attention will be paid to reciting short chapters of the Quran with exact pronunciation.

Term 3- 5 Weeks - In the final term the focus will be primarily on recitation practice and application of what has been covered throughout the year including consolidation of the rules of stopping. Students will be given individual appointments to recite rehearsed portions of the Quran with the tutor.
