I have been apart time private Arabic instructor since 2006. it's important to always be teaching and creating more modern curriculum for real progress in fluency. I know what it takes to get fluent, because I've acquired arabic as an adult. I know you can improve and teach your goals just as i have.

I work primarily with professionals who need to improve Arabic language skills and/ or accent for those working in Egypt or working with Arabs..
This includes, slang, idioms, phrasal verbs, professional email writing, presentations, American culture, accent/pronunciation and more.

Nada is a wonderful teacher! She is patient, gracious, encouraging and loves people. She understands that learning Arabic as an adult is much harder than for a child. She therefore patiently helped, guided and continued to encourage me throughout our time together.

She also applied creativity in our lessons and always helped me to engage with the materials while connecting with me on a personal level.

I loved her as a teacher and would recommend her to anyone that wants to embark on the challenging and exciting journey of learning Arabic!
Tareq
Nada is patient, knowledgeable and flexible. I took Standard Arabic lessons with her and enjoyed her way of teaching. She helped me to understand all the process of writing (everything from structure to comprehension). She explained everything in detail and very clear. She was extremely flexible with her time schedule and was ready to help with everything she could.
Rachel
Nada was an excellent instructor-- patient, respectful, friendly, and thorough. She always came on time, explained everything well, and made the lessons enjoyable. If she knew I wanted to learn more about a cultural topic, she would take time to research it more thoroughly so that she could explain it in detail. I really enjoyed my lessons with her!

I am a native speaker from Egypt who has studied traditional and non traditional Arabic classes including MSA (modern Standard Arabic), and even classical fus7a (fusshha) and modern colloquial. I have tutored Arabic at the Ohio State University and can also teach how to write Arabic calligraphy if interested.

"I learned Arabic with Basma. She has an excellent way of getting you grasp the language naturally without feeling you're actually crossing borders! You feel you're into the culture. I speak and write Arabic fluently because of her. I started reading books and communicating with my Arabic gf. She loves it now. We have conversations now and she doesn't say anything in Arabic without me interfering to tell her what's she's talking about. She's amazed. I liked Basma's teaching. She's an excellent teacher and I highly recommend her."

"Amani is an amazing teacher! I have taken the Rosetta Stone Arabic course, but their scope with Arabic is limited to Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). Amani has helped to bring Arabic to life for me. Here is what I have discovered in the lessons I have taken so far:
- she is extremely patient
- she answers all of your questions
- she starts the lessons at your level (I am a beginner)
- she is willing to discuss any and all topics
- she is very knowledgeable in Arabic- Modern Standard Arabic or "MSA" (also known as "fus-ha" / formal Arabic) and a range of Colloquial Dialects.
(Remember that MSA is not a native tongue to any Arabic-speaking country. If your goal is to communicate with others, you will have to learn a dialect). I have asked for the translation to words in MSA and she has given me the versions in Syrian (a branch of "Levantine" Arabic which is also understood in Lebanon and Palestine ); Gulf Arabic (for those travelling to Dubai, Saudi Arabia, or Qatar); and she has also offered the translations in Egyptian Arabic which seems to be the most popular spoken dialect.
- she is also a lot of fun to talk to

So all that to say - I am looking forward to the next lesson!!! :-)

Arabic Lessons in Los Angeles, CA

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.

Many Reasons to Take Arabic Classes in Los Angeles

Of the roughly three-million Arab Americans living in the United States, about one-third live in California, and a large portion of this group resides in the Little Arabia district of Anaheim - just next door to Los Angeles.

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.

In addition to vibrant Arab culture and traditions, taking Arabic lessons in Los Angeles can open the doors to a variety of job opportunities. The professionally strategic language will provide you career opportunities in journalism, foreign service and intelligence, finance, and more.

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.

Preparing for Los Angeles Arabic Classes

Once you've decided you're ready to experience this new culture, a private Arabic tutor in Los Angeles, CA will set you up for success with fully prepared lesson plans and class materials designed to introduce you to the language. You’ll learn a new alphabet, vocabulary words, grammar rules, reading, writing, and more!

Most of our private Arabic tutors are available to meet for in-person lessons or online. If you choose to meet in person, why not take advantage of LA's sunny weather, or visit an import market together for plenty of chances to practice your new skills?

Before your first lesson, find some inspiration at a local Arabic bookstore, like Jarir Book Store in Garden Grove. 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.

Practicing Everything You Learn from Los Angeles Arabic Classes

After just a couple of lessons with an Arabic teacher in Los Angeles CA, you’ll likely be eager to find a setting where you can practice the language. Los Angeles's diverse cultural tapestry offers plenty of opportunities for practicing a second language. You can dive in and get started by attending one of the many Arabic conversation groups scheduled in and around the city.

Spend a Saturday browsing the Jordan Market or restaurant-hopping through the city's Middle Eastern and North African restaurants, like Tarboosh Middle East Kitchen and Moun of Tunis Restaurant. Afraid to put your skills to use? Arabic classes in Los Angeles will help you gain confidence by improving your pronunciation, comprehension, and conversational fluency.
