Roula has been awesome and has worked to cater every lesson towards my level and goals. Highly recommend!
Elmon T.
My French lessons with Roula have exceeded all of my expectations! I spoke a little French before beginning with her, and she quickly tailored her lesson plan to my precise skill level to make sure I am both challenged by the material and absorbing the language. She is incredibly responsive and thorough, and truly takes the time to ensure that I completely understand the materials presented. I am more excited than ever about continuing my French studies because of her - I can't recommend her enough! These classes have been an incredible investment and I plan on continuing as long as possible! Thank you Roula! :)

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 will also learn how to speak, read and write . Our sessions will depend on conversations more than boring grammar rules that most children don't like. 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.

We love our Arabic teacher! Ms. Layla is a caring and committed individual who is comprehensive in her teaching approach as well as fun and kid-friendly in her teaching style. It’s such a relief to know that our child is receiving excellent Arabic instruction on a weekly basis. She will adjust her curriculum and pace according to your family’s needs. At first, we wondered how engaging an online experience would be for our seven year old, but we’ve been super happy with Ms. Layla.

Mohamed always has a detailed and layered lesson prepared. He utilizes various tools too keep your attention and measure your understanding of the material. He is patient and detail oriented. He ends each lesson by providing you with a detailed class summary which is an exceptional tool for studying on your own.

Finally, Mohamed's English is great, so he can explain complex ideas in English to ensure you understand. I highly recommend Mohamed for Arabic learning."

Private Arabic Classes Near You

The Arabic language dates back to at least 1,500 years ago (and likely before that). Its rich history is just one of the many reasons people choose to learn Arabic. Some estimates conclude that there are more than 400 million Arabic speakers worldwide!

What else draws people to this unique language? Arabic is fun to learn because it uses a diverse set of sounds that aren't used in any other language. Additionally, a surprising number of words have made it from Arabic into English. For example, “Algebra,” “algorithm” and “alcohol” all derived from the language. Keep reading for more exciting reasons to learn Arabic. 

Many Reasons to Take Arabic Lessons Near You

Are you interested in lessons for your child, or do you want to learn to speak Arabic as an adult? Either way, taking Arabic lessons near you provides a host of benefits. Let's explore a few of them below. 

Reasons to Learn Arabic for Kids

Learning Arabic is more than just an extracurricular activity for your child. It's more like a mental workout! Children who learn a second language have been found to develop an advanced understanding of their native tongue. They also score higher on exams than monolinguals, and this even holds true for college entrance exams.

Hoping to eventually enroll your child in music lessons? Another surprising benefit for kids who learn a second language is that it makes mastering a musical instrument much easier. Similar parts of the brain are used for both!

The Benefits of Arabic Classes for Adults

Since Arabic is the official language of 22 countries, you'll find some valuable benefits when learning as an adult. New and exciting career opportunities will open up for you, from interpreting to healthcare. Many employers favor bilingual job candidates and even offer a higher salary for such skills.  

You'll also get to use the language throughout the Arabic world when traveling to exotic destinations such as Saudi Arabia, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi. You'll gain new insights into the Arabic culture, including its literature. Imagine reading the Quran or "The One Thousand and One Nights" in their original languages!
