Online Arabic Teacher

Can you imagine an actress giving Arabic lessons! Well that’s me. Are you wondering what could make an actress give Arabic lessons? The answer is love. I love that the Arabic language is built up on emotions and is poetic. Through my work as an actress I have to use perfect language as well as perfect skills in delivering the language. Actors in Syria need to have very good Arabic, especially Fusha. Being an Arabic native speaker doesn’t mean that your Fusha is good. My Fusha is good because I’ve always loved reading both novels and poetry, and because I used to write in Arabic newspapers, and beside all of these things, I had the chance to practice my Fusha through my work as an actress.
I started tutoring Arabic four years ago. I teach both Fusha and Syrian dialect for children and adults. Through the years I’ve worked on making my lessons full of fun and energy. My lessons are definitely unconventional with a lot of activities in and out the class. Sometimes I cook Syrian food ...

"Mohamed is the best! He's a great teacher. Mohamed ' s knowledge of the Arabic language and Middle Eastern/Arabian culture are vast. His English proficiency is at about 98% (in my opinion), so there are no awkward moments, where he doesn't know what I'm talking about. He is patient; kind; gentle; and encouraging.

Arabic is believed to have evolved from early Aramaic, the language of the Bedouin tribes of the Arab Peninsula. These nomads and 7th century Islamic invasions are responsible for the spread of the Arabic language throughout the Middle East to North Africa, and even into Western and Central Asia.

Today, 25 countries claim Arabic as their official language and it's spoken by over 300 million people worldwide - making it the fifth most spoken language in the world. Spanning across diverse regions, the Arabic language opens students up to an eclectic group of cultures and traditions.

The large population of Arab Americans living in and around LA means there are plenty of opportunities to experience Middle Eastern culture, and the cultures of other Arabic-speaking regions such as parts of Africa. Arabic events in the Los Angeles area include film, music, dancing, and of course, Arabic cuisine.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art houses a large collection of Islamic art from several periods of history. Also, West Los Angeles is home to The Markaz, AKA The Levantine Cultural Center. This nonprofit organization facilitates education and exposure to the Arabic cultures, history, and language of the Middle East.

Learning with an Arabic Tutor in Los Angeles

One of the best ways to learn a new language is to attend private classes with a tutor. We have a long list of highly rated and experienced tutors for aspiring students in and around Los Angeles. One instructor, Roula F., has more than 30 years of experience teaching language.

"I love that she tailors the lesson to your needs and makes you feel comfortable," a five-star reviewer wrote. "It is easy to tell she has been doing this for a long time and enjoys it."

If you want to learn to read Arabic, we recommend selecting a tutor proficient in teaching Modern Standard Arabic. Have plans to visit a particular Arabic-speaking country or region? Select a tutor with knowledge of that area's particular dialect, since conversational Arabic differs quite a bit from region to region.

For example, if your itinerary includes cruising the Nile in Egypt, check out one of our highest rated tutors, Moataz A. He’s native speaker from Egypt who can help you easily navigate the intricacies of communicating in the Upper and Lower Nile River Valley.

Afterwards, pop into Shorthand stationery store for notebooks, flashcards, pens, and highlighters to take notes during your classes. You can even visit the Los Angeles Public Library to checkout an English-Arabic dictionary.
