I'm ready to help you with your MSA or even if you select to learn the Arabic dialect (I teach LCA Levantine Colloquial Arabic: Shami شامي).
Believe me it's not that hard I simplified it as much as I can to reach your comprehension.

Marie is an amazing teacher. I took a couple of years of French in high school and have learned in a much more fluid, easier to understand way from Marie. The way she teaches she connects sounds & letters of several words. It's so helpful her strategy of teaching. Thank you Marie!
Yesenia Garcia

Jessica
I had a very good experience during my French lessons with Ms. Marie-Ange. She was very kind and easy to work with. She looks for creative ways to help you memorize new information and makes learning fun. She also makes sure to stay focused and makes teaching plans that best suit your needs. Overall, she was a very good teacher and I benefitted a lot from her lessons.

Hi there!

I am a native speaker of the language, in addition of working as a teacher at LANGUAGE STARS(I taugh Arabic and a little bit of French to kids from 1-14yo at the center). I have been tutoring for a while now, from when I was in high school to when I got to college.
I consider my teaching method different because I use different technique to keep the lesson fun and interesting. I am a great fit for active kids (1-14yo). I am also a great fit for adults that like to learn languages the NON traditional way. If you have any question, please do not hesitate to reach out. Hope to hear from you.

I am fluent in Arabic. I came up with a way to teach Arabic for children combining everyday language with the classic Arabic that most children find difficult. I am familiar with the different Arabic regions dialects and can determine how to start the learning process depending on the students interests and their needs to learn this language. Children and adults will also learn how to speak, read and write . Our sessions will depend on conversations more than boring grammar rules. In addition, the student will learn about the culture of the different regions. I traveled and lived in several countries and very familiar with the traditions and the heritage. Sessions will be personalized depending on each individual's interest.
I can also teach the different Arabic dialects and I can teach the Middle Eastern cuisine. The Arabic culture is very rich and my online sessions will be a one of a kind experience.

"Aaron really is the best language teacher I've had- better than any of my college professors by far. I heard about Aaron from a buddy who had taken lessons with him for 6 months in preparation for a business trip- he raved about Aaron and suggested that I give lessons a shot.

I had taken a handful of Arabic language courses in college, but afterwards I felt like I forgot everything I learned. It was exhausting and frustrating to go back to the material and try to re-learn the basics. Aaron has helped me solidify my basics and made me confident and comfortable understanding and speaking both MSA and colloquial Arabic. He's extremely patient, sincere, and hilarious. He doesn't waste time and knows exactly what he's doing

Awesome awesome teacher!"

Arabic is the fifth most commonly spoken language in the world and is the official language of 26 countries across the Middle East and North Africa. Each nation speaks its own dialect, while reading and writing in Modern Standard Arabic.

Learning Arabic makes it possible to communicate with the nearly 300 million people who speak it. The language immerses you in the rich cultures of its peoples: their art, religions, music, literature, and cuisines. Plus, our tutors in Chicago can help you achieve your Arabic learning goals with ease!

Benefits of Taking Arabic Classes in Chicago

Chicago is one of the best places in the United States to learn Arabic thanks to the city's large population of Arabic-speaking immigrants (primarily from Palestine and Jordan). Just unde

...

r 13,000 people speak Arabic in Chicago, providing countless opportunities for cultural immersion and language practice.

In between Arabic classes in Chicago, you can stroll through Little Palestine to experience Middle Eastern businesses, like Palestine Bakery and The Nile Restaurant. Browse through the Al-Aqsa Supermarket and get inspired to practice cooking Middle Eastern delights in your own kitchen. You can also spend a day admiring the large collection of Islamic art held at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Learning Arabic isn't just about experiencing new cultures. It also opens doors to several professional opportunities in industries like journalism, government diplomacy, tourism, hospitality, law, healthcare, and more. Whatever your reason for learning, be sure to ask your Arabic tutor in Chicago, Illinois to tailor lessons to your specific areas of interest!

Studying with an Arabic Tutor in Chicago, Illinois

In our easy to use directory, you can access dozens of highly recommended Arabic teachers who are experienced in developing curriculum for students of all ages. Keep in mind that North Africa and the Middle East use Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) in the media, professional settings, and academics, but regionally people speak drastically different dialects.

At TakeLessons, our instructors specialize in MSA and a variety of dialects. For example, if you plan to visit Egypt, Moataz A., a native Egyptian instructor can help you learn phrases to speak with the locals.

If you’ll be traveling to Middle Eastern locations like Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, or Jordan, consider contacting Carol H., who graduated from the Lebanese American University and specializes in the dialects of these particular regions.

Another excellent option is Amani A., one of our highest rated teachers. One reviewer had this to say, "Amani is very, very good. She is patient with me and understands my learning style. I think she is amazing!"
