The Arabic curriculum on this site was developed by LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District) Arabic Team through the QFI (Qatar Foundation International) curriculum grant awarded 2012-2013. The curriculum included twelve units (6 units for Arabic level 1, and 6 units for Arabic Level 2). The project aimed at creating a hybrid module that compliments and supplements face to face instructions in LAUSD's schools. The course was built using Moodle (a Course/ Learning Management System) creating an effective online learning forum that LAUSD's teachers can use to expand on students skills and knowledge beyond school hours.

"Irasshai  teaches Japanese language and culture skills to high school and college students and adult learners and professionals.
