The three methods of learning Qur’ān from a teacher:
1. The teacher recites to the student, who then repeats back to the teacher. If the teacher realises a mistake he corrects him. This is the best method because the student hears the correct recitation from the teacher, and the teacher corrects him.
2. The student recites to the teacher. This is usually done with students who have some background in Qur’ān recitation.
3. The student listens to the teacher recite, then they go home and practice. This is the lowest level because the teacher doesn’t get to listen to the student and correct him. This is similar to listening to an audio CD.
