ADLS – ADLSUK | Arabic Daily Language Support UK

ADLSUK / ADLS UK | Arabic Daily Language Support UK

Welcome to ADLS UK | Arabic Daily Language Support UK.

In life and learning, we often need a little help, so it makes sense to have access to support and resources that can make a little difference.

What is ADLS UK?

Arabic Daily Language Support UK (ADLS UK) is an independent language education company which started back in 2011. It was re-established in 2014 to incorporate it’s not for profit charitable works, alongside its community-focused literacy and educational development projects. ADLS was founded in London via a network of inspired people keen to give back to communities in different ways.

ADLS UK is motivated by such organisations as UNESCO and its International Literacy Day in September. As well as World Book Day during March, World Language Day, Education Day and similar celebrations and observances.

What is your mission?

Our mission is simply to support, serve and inspire change. Well-being, peace, love and understanding are at the core of our mission statement. We believe that one of the paths to learning is establishing a positive ethos, founded on faith and trust. This path to learning also seeks to foster a climate of respect and trust amongst people based on shared values across communities. Ultimately it is a mission of sharing for success.

What are the ADLS project themes and aims?

  • To provide community education support, (Functional Skills, Numeracy & Literacy).
  • To advance awareness of positive behaviour & lifestyle, (Moral, Psychological & Spiritual Development).
  • To promote the well being of children and adults, (Health, Peace Building & Safeguarding).

What do you do?  

  • Our primary work is to support language and literacy activities. This often takes place in homes, schools, centres and online.
  • We provide support for lifestyle lessons and well-being awareness programmes.
  • We look at ways to support causes such as literacy, behavioural improvement, safeguarding and various humanitarian projects.
  • We are in contact with tradesmen, painters and decorators, gardeners and other service providers such as English and Maths tutors.
  • We prepare students for exams in the UK and abroad.
  • We provide visiting examiner, interpreter and translation services.
  • We arrange speaker hire for an event or school visit.

Arabic Girls Names

Arabic Girls Names

Top Arabic Girls Names

Here is a list of some of the worlds most popular Girls names in Arabic. These are not in any particular order of favour.

ARABIC GIRLS NAMES

1. Khadejah

2. Zaynab

3. Haleema

4. Fatima

5. Hanaan

6. Huda

7. Jasmin

8. Layla

9. Nadia

10. Rihana

There are many more names that you can find in books or other searches but this is just a quick round-up of some of the more popular ones. Some of the names mentioned above although popular in some countries are still rare in others. Having an Arabic sounding name obviously does not make you Arab or Muslim the same way that having a ‘Christian name’ does not make you Christian.

The topic of names is an interesting conversation as many people think that if you’re named after someone well known then it is as if your expected to follow in that person’s footsteps and example. For others, it is a nice reminder of someone who they might admire. Some people prefer not to name their children after anyone at all and create unique names for their children, most of these names, fortunately, or unfortunately do not have any meaning. One person had just a symbol for their name, other people may just have one name without a family name. People may even change their name from what it was at birth to something totally different.

Whatever the reason or rhyme behind why people are called what they are mocking a person because of their name is not the done thing. Whether a person has a name that you like or not that is for them to live with more than it is the business of anyone else. As for whether western names are better than other names of other cultures you will not get a definitive answer either way as different cultures like what they like for their own reasons different to another person’s reasons.

Some reasons to learn Arabic
Arabic is the fourth/fifth most spoken language in the world. There are many countries that speak Arabic as a first language. One of the first things that a person does when he or she becomes a Muslim is to learn some basic Arabic words and chapters of the Quran. Arabic is also the language of many Christians in the Middle East who are very proud of their language.
Why would anyone learn Arabic?
1. It is a scientific language.
2. It is a spiritual language.
3. It is one of the top languages to learn in political and economic circles.
4. Its letters are clear, unlike many other languages where various letters can have different sounds and pronunciations.
5. It is a language whose learners increase every time someone becomes Muslim…and we all know how many people are becoming Muslims, despite the negative media stereotypes and shocking stories.
6. It is a language not just of Arabs or for Arabs, as the Arabic language has been made international…it is now open for anyone to learn.
7. There are obviously many jobs a person can get if they can speak Arabic such as within Journalism, travel companies, NGO’s, charitable organisations and aid agencies, translation and interpretation, teaching, spy agencies and secret services, financial institutes working and meeting with those rich Arabs etc etc etc.
8. For social reasons…maybe you have a Muslim friend or know someone who is Arab or speaks Arabic.
9. It is a language that has been around for some 2000 years. It has classical, modern and colloquial versions of it.
10. And last but not least it is the language of one of the most popular and widely read books ever. The language of a book that is controversial but attracts so many people of all backgrounds and cultures. It is the language of the Holy Quran.

There are many Arabic words used in other languages like English, you may even speak words of Arabic origin without even realising.

Knowledge Village

The Knowledge Village (KV) was created to retain and develop regional talent needed to drive the creation of a knowledge economy, to respond to changes in overseas education, and to maximize on the large youth population in the region. It was established as a regional meeting point between Middle Eastern students and global education providers.

The Knowledge Village

In 2003, Dubai Knowledge Village was launched in line with the vision of H.H. Shaykh Muhammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai. The KV was founded as a third business entity of Dubai TECOM Free Zone along with Dubai Internet City and Dubai Media City. In founding the KV, Sheikh Muhammad was in a way recreating the success of California’s Silicon Valley by attracting a large number of famous international universities, professional training centers, e-learning providers, and research and development centers from around the world. His vision was that as these clusters grow, they will interact, thus complementing and contributing to each other’s growth and creating a vibrant knowledge economy base.

ICT and Modern Foreign Language Learning

Integrating ICT into the MFL classroom:

Making Languages Count: CILT Cymru DVD

Making_languages_count

Making Languages Count is a DVD training resource produced by CILT Cymru which showcases good practice from schools in Wales involved in the Compact Project and is aimed to increase take up of MFL in Key Stage 4. The DVD is divided into the following sections:

  • ICT Skills
  • Skills-based learning
  • Raising the profile of MFL
  • PDF download
  • Acknowledgements

Kath_holton_on_dvrs

In the ICT Skills section, Kath Holton, Head of Languages at Argoed High School shows how her department are using digital voice recorders to promote speaking skills, boost pupil confidence, develop independent learning strategies and facilitate assessment for learning opportunities. The approach certainly seems to be producing positive outcomes judging by the reaction of the pupils.

e.g.

“Being recorded with one of these, it makes me more confident speaking French and it helps me to practice my pronunciation as well”.

“We are able to put them on our mp3 players and listen to them overnight and build up our revision”.

“Once it’s on the computer, it’s there. Whereas in previous years when we’ve practised speaking, once we’ve said it, it’s gone and we can’t revise off it, but we can keep these for future reference using the DVRs”.

Kath explains:

“They’re doing so much in the learning process that I can step back as a teacher and let them assess each other, give each other grades, praise each other, but with the digital voice recorders, it’s all saved on my laptop and on the school system which means not only can I refer to it for reports and marking, but for departmental standardisation”.

Taking the recordings to the next level, Kath has been creatingVokis and uploading them to the department’s French Wetpaint wiki. Pupils have been so engaged by this cool approach to language learning that they’ve been creating their own at home, leaving comments on each other’s and even uploading them via their mobile phones.

Kath_holton_on_vokis

Other case studies feature the use of interactive websites, mind mapping, development of target language and multi-media ICT suites and much more. The DVD also contains pdf documents which can support colleagues further such as how to record digital sound files and use them in class.

To obtain a DVD contact Kristina Hedges at CILT Cymru. Copies cost £10 each and are available now.

Qatar 2022 World Cup or England???

Qatar (Doha) 2022 World Cup or England???

With the FBI investigating alleged corruption at FIFA the chances of Qatar holding the World Cup in 2022 hang in the balance. Sepp Blatter has already announced he will be standing down as FIFA President. Interpol have put two of FIFA’s former officials on its wanted list.

John Whittingdale, the culture secretary, seems to feel confident that England is prepared and willing to host the 2022 event.

The question is what will Qatar do with all those stadiums if it loses the right to host the World Cup?

Will an Arab country ever get the chance again?

It all sounds very pessimistic but we shall have to wait and see what the outcome is.

At the end of the day its only football…isn’t it?

Post GCSE Arabic and Adult Lessons

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

Public ed is only a right for the compliant

The powerful and wealthy in our country pay to send their children to schools that are not testing factories, but for those who can’t afford this luxury, children are used, abused, chewed up and spit out of the system if they are not compliant. Even if it means they will get hurt or sick.

It’s sort of like one of those alien movies where those in power feel they have the right to run these tests on aliens because they are sub-human. But this is not a movie and our children aren’t aliens.
This story played out recently when 12-year-old Anthony Hererra’s mother, Gretchen, followed doctors orders which she shared with the school and allowed her son to opt out of the test. As reported in Education Week, what came next was a letter waiting for her from the charter school her son attends. The letter said Anthony was no longer welcome because by opting out he violated his learning contract so he was being withdrawn from the school, effective immediately.

Upset, that her son was being forced to comply to school rules that would harm him, or get kicked out, Gretchen responded to the school director with a letter asking her to reconsider her decision and show compassion for her son who would be harmed by the tests she wanted to perform on him. Here’s an excerpt:
“My son is a 12 year old little boy with Aspergers and a brittle diabetic. I presented Cherry Daniels and Donna Strom with a letter from his diabetes team stating my son should NOT take the test. It stated clearly that he would have a dramatic reaction in his health, but still he took the first part.
My son’s blood sugar spiked over 200 points in 30 minutes!
I had sent ANOTHER letter in as well to his homeroom teacher stating that not only did his blood sugar go up, but while there was all of this turmoil, after I refused to let him get ill AGAIN by finishing the PASS tests, his overall blood sugar (A1C) was dangerously high! All of the stress he went through over will he or won’t he be allowed to come back because he didn’t return to a situation that made him physically and dangerously ill caused his A1C to reach 9.0 from a 7.0! That is documented.
Your school ignored the letter from his endocrinology team and subsequently caused him to be in a very harmful situation with his health.”
Young Anthony’s health did not matter to the school. All that mattered were his test scores. What was equally alarming is that many other parents at the school shared that when it comes to kids, the government, not the parents, should have final say and that if she wanted her son in school Gretchen should just comply and follow their orders even if it was against doctors orders and would make him extremely ill. It’s become a case of what Author of Instead of Medicating and Punishing and an Unschooling Coach Laurie A. Couture refers to as the Stockholm Syndrome which is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy, sympathy and have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them.

As Gretchen was spending her time researching schools that would be a good fit for Anthony she noticed something interesting. Her little boy started thriving. During the time she thought she and her son were just hanging out, her son had started taking up IT and computer programming and today at 13 knows enough to land him a job starting at 48k per year. While the system and others were calling Anthony a loser for leaving, Anthony discovered he was finally able to learn. Not only that, but the articles that appeared in places like Ed Week and various blogs became an inspiration to him and led to what his mother calls “his recovery.” As more time passed away from school Anthony developed a greater sense of self and no longer had depression and suicidal tendencies that were the side effects of his time in school.

Now there is no turning back. The Hererra’s learned that, for Anthony, the best school is no school. Anthony couldn’t be happier and in fact has agreed to write a follow up on how he is doing to share with the world and he predicts it will go viral and “be bigger than the ‘butt spider’ everyone is posting about on Facebook.”

I hope he’s right 🙂

BBC Dyslexia Series: Inside Dyslexia

The documentary My Dyslexic Mind aims to put you in the shoes of the children featured in the film and the interactive experience, Try Being Me, is designed to give you a better idea of what it’s like living with dyslexia.

My Dyslexic Mind

Presented by 12-year-old Ben, who has dyslexia himself, My Dyslexic Mind explores what it means to be dyslexic and the problems that children face growing up. In this engaging video Ben investigates how dyslexia affects the brain, and even travels to Oxford University to meet with a dyslexia specialist to explore how dyslexia affects the brain. Ben also meets Zach and Khalya, two other dyslexic children, to discuss their experiences of negotiating dyslexia in the classroom, the methods that they have learnt to cope with any problems and how they excel in other fields. This upbeat idea of dyslexia as not being something that should hold you back is reflected in the light-hearted cartoons that complement the footage.

The documentary culminates with Ben chatting to Dom Wood who has become a well-loved CBBC presenter and is a fellow sufferer of dyslexia. Dom’s message is hopeful as he points out that thousands of jobs don’t require academia, as shown by his own success story. He also says that if it wasn’t for dyslexia he wouldn’t be where he is today. Overall the video is great to get a better understanding of what it’s like to live with dyslexia and how it doesn’t have to hold you back from success.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/20783005

Try Being me

Try Being Me is an interactive experience to accompany, ‘My Dyslexic Mind’, which allows you to appreciate what living with dyslexia is like for each of the children featured in the documentary. This is great because you can explore the different ways that dyslexia can affect people, for example how it affects the way you recognise the sounds that groups of letters make . It is also fantastic for understanding the special techniques that people learn to help them cope with dyslexia.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/20789777

More Newsround Resources

In general, the Newsround website is a fantastic resource for children trying to understand what dyslexia exactly entails. It’s presented in a really easy to read format with simple explanations of the key issues related to dyslexia, such as the causes and its symptoms. For example ‘what’s it like for someone who has dyslexia?’ and ‘how many people have dyslexia?’
