>An ancient Chinese proverb says, "May you live in interesting times."

>"The other – which I see so plainly now – is that the centre of gravity,

>economically and politically, is shifting East. And it is shifting fast. "

>- Anthony Charles Lynton "Tony" Blair, ‘Faith and Globalisation’, Thursday

>3rd April 2008, London

>

>According to the Muqaddimah of the great Muslim Historian Ibn

>Khaldun, "All civilisations rise and fall". In the 21st Century

>we are witnessing the decline of the West through its ageing

>population and downward spiral towards moral bankruptcy. At the

>same time, the ancient civilisations of China and India are

>undergoing a resurgence and are expected to become superpowers

>in the near future.

>

>Unlike India which has dropped Sanskrit as its language of

>commerce, China has retained its ancient way of communication.

>With over 1200 years of Sino-Islamic relations, ranging from

>the early da'wah efforts of the companion, Sa'd ibn Abi Waqqas

>(ra), to the pioneering journeys of the greatest naval commander

>in Chinese history, Admiral Zheng He, to the fact that there

>are some 100 million Muslims living China today, Muslims have

>a rich and unique relationship with China. Part of developing

>the relationship is to understand the language of this great

>civilisation. Learning Mandarin is one step towards preparing

>the Ummah for some of the challenges of the 21st Century.

>

>The Zheng He Foundation has organised a programme of courses

>and events to facilitate this process. In this introductory

>Mandarin Level 1 course participants will be taught how to

>write the commonly used Chinese radicals which still form the

>basis of modern Chinese writing. By mastering these radicals

>students will learn other ideographs more easily and learn

>how to use a Chinese/English dictionary. Students will also

>learn to converse in everyday situations. The approach used

>to teach writing, reading and conversing is based on

>accelerated learning principles. This course is currently

>open to adults only. However, later on classes for

>Muslim children will also be organised.

>7) 15 WEEK INTENSIVE CLASSICAL ARABIC COURSES LEVEL 1 & 2

>

>Delivered by The Ibn Jabal Institute (www.ibnjabal.com)

>

>Level 1: Sunday 11th May - Sunday 24th August 2008

>Level 2: Sunday 18th May - Sunday 31st August 2008

>

>Times: 9am - 11am

>

>ABOUT LEVEL 1:

>A 15-week Level 1 Intensive Classical Arabic course where we expose

>participants to most of the general paradigms of Arabic grammar,

>syntax and morphology, including the 10 most common forms of the

>Arabic verb and the 9 derivations of each form. By the end of the

>course, students should be able to read simple Arabic texts using

>the help of a dictionary; be capable of basic conversation using

>simple vocabulary; be able to translate sentences; be able to

>read sentences in Arabic and translate them into English; have

>developed a vocabulary of approximately 500 words; be familiar

>with most of the general grammatical structures and syntax;

>master the ten most common forms of the Arabic verb and the nine

>derivations of each form.

>

>ABOUT LEVEL 2:

>The Level 2 course offers those who have completed Level 1 or have

>reached an intermediate level in Arabic an excellent opportunity to

>apply their knowledge and improve their comprehension. Participants

>negotiate challenging but tractable extracts from various genres of

>Arabic literature and hone their skills in translating from both

>Arabic to English and English to Arabic. Level 2 is an immersion

>course after the hard grind of Level 1. Grammar in Level 1 is taught

>'prescriptively': rules are stated and then illustrated with a few

>examples so that the student can learn a lot of grammar in a short

>space of time. In Level 2 grammar is taught 'deductively': bodies

>of language are encountered, whether written or spoken, and attempts

>are made to decipher them. The teaching of grammatical rules is

>incidental and attendant to this. In Level 1 the student approaches

>meaning through structure; in Level 2 they try to grapple with

>meanings and refer to structure to facilitate that. Participants

>are given materials and exercises that are both interesting and

>stimulating as well as challenging and intensive. The overwhelming

>emphasis is on vocabulary building. This is achieved not only by

>straightforward learning of words, but also by memorising adhkar

>(devotional supplications), hikam (aphorisms), shi'r (poetry),

>Qur'an, Hadith and amthal (proverbs).
