IAD and its teachers are provided with Smartboards and other educational resources to allow a more effective delivery of Arabic lessons. Arabic language teaching is embedded in a wide range of mediums such as interactive activities, songs, internet resources and a variety of media on the following strands:

Arabic teachers take all students backgrounds (language and culture) into consideration when they plan, teach and assess Arabic language. Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) are developed and provided for students who require more assistance in their language-learning journey.
