Lam (لم) makes mudaari’ verbs majzoom.
Majzoom (jazm) means it has sukoon on the last letter; in Arabic grammar, there are four cases–marfoo, majruwr, mansoob, and majzoom.
Mudaari’ verbs can be majzoom–for example, with lam!
Lam is a type of negation; to mean something didn’t happen or take place.
Ex: هو لم يأكل = he didn’t eat (huwa lam ya’kul).

Thank you for your inquiries regarding GCSE Arabic for adults as well as Arabic lessons geared towards AS/A’level Arabic.
Our primary target is to cater to primary and secondary school children who need to learn Arabic either for school exams or for learning Quranic Arabic. That is not to say that we do not tutor adults in Quranic Arabic or other areas of Arabic, we have and continue to tutor adults in Arabic.
Our fees for adult learners of GCSE Arabic and post GCSE Arabic are not usually the same as fees for primary and secondary school learners.
If you have already completed a GCSE in Arabic and wish to continue on to a higher level our fees will reflect the level of study, especially if those lessons are also after 4pm.
Kind regards wa salam

The Arab and Muslims world is culturally rich and full of centuries of history and heritage. Through the effects of globalization and modern technology, there is more interaction between cultures than ever before. While this can lead to cultural tensions, the more you get to know your neighbors, the more you realize how much all the peoples of the world have in common, despite differences that may be apparent at first glance. One of the obvious ways to get know a people is through language…get to grips with Arabic!
