What is ARÖMER?

The ARÖMER Center at Istanbul 29 Mayıs University – founded and managed by Dr. Ibrahim Helalşah – is considered the most prominent Turkish academic institution that teaches the Arabic language. It is known for its distinct method of teaching which relies on linguistic immersion and activities that are designed to transform the student’s reading, speaking and writing comprehension, all customized to their existing level of proficiency. Students at all levels of Arabic proficiency can benefit from this program, including those who have taken the Bayyinah Dream program.

Recommended by Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan

“This is super exciting for me because my students, who’ve been very part-time up until now, are studying Arabic grammar and some concepts to aid them in understanding the Quran. I want them to have a full 360-degree view of the Arabic language.

What excites me about ARÖMER and this summer program that we’re doing, is that they actually get to immerse themselves and get a first taste of full-on Arabic immersion with expert Arabic teachers.

I hope the students who take this program as a taster will develop enough of an appetite to apply for the full year-long program.”

(Please note: Ustadh Nouman will not be teaching this program. The curriculum will be taught by expert Arabic teachers from ARÖMER.)

Experienced students will not be expected to study at lower levels for which they already have full comprehension, and vice versa.
