A distance between people maintained where possible
We are very much looking forward to teaching you this year.

What students have had to say
“Sheikh Idris has produced a high quality course and is endlessly supportive and enthusiastic. The mysteries of the Quran and its language have opened up to me.”
“The teacher teaches with a positive mental attitude which he reinforces throughout the course. For instance, rather than feeling discouraged by new rules, he suggests that we approach it with curiosity and excitement like we do with many new things in life. It was a different approach and this helped me in my Arabic as well as in my everyday life, too. It was encouraging to students at all levels. He had an encouraging word to say to us all. Shaykh Idris is a motivating, encouraging, supportive and approachable teacher. I would definitely recommend the course for anyone wanting to learn Arabic”
“Before doing the course, a fully blown tafseer in English would have been necessary to stimulate my thinking, but I was completely taken aback that we had arrived at these understandings through the words of the Quran alone – and we had only scraped the surface as beginners! I liked the fact that he was approachable as a teacher. That is the single most important characteristic I look for in any teacher because I learn through questions. Having the ability to ask questions in class, online sessions and email is a big advantage on this course. I have been a student in environments where questions were limited due to the teacher’s negative approach to questions. I’m glad to say I’ve never experienced that on this course. His approach to teaching is highly motivating. It’s challenged a lot of my preconceptions of the learning process and changed my perception towards education and what it means to learn. I feel this has encouraged me to continue through the more difficult parts of the course.”
“I have never learnt so much from a course before! It has changed the way I look at life and live it”
