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!

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.

Roula is a one of a kind instructor! It also doesn't hurt that she is funny and makes you laugh. She is detail oriented and able to adapt to your way of learning.

I appreciate that she proactively checks in to make sure her style of teaching is working for you and adjusts accordingly.

It was very difficult for me to find an instructor who is certified to teach AND who also specializes in teaching Arabic spoken in the Levant and Lebanon. If you are also looking for this particular specialty, Roula is the instructor you need.

Thank you Roula!

"I went to Jordan last year and Basma helped me speak with my friends there. I knew no Arabic at all before I met her. I was able to communicate with them and understand most of their conversations. She teaches you how to make the conversation as well as giving you tools to understand every topic that is flying around you. I loved studying with her. She's very detailed and thorough. Thank you so much Basma. Your lessons are amazing and I love spending time studying with you. It's fun and informative. I highly recommend you for anyone who wants to speak Arabic. Basma is also an interpreter and translator so you also learn to translate and interpret if you want to learn that as well on the side. Keep the hard work Basma. Thank you so much again for the brilliant methods."

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 take Arabic lessons. Some estimate that there are more than 400 million Arabic speakers worldwide!

What else draws people to this unique and beautiful 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.

Ultimately, your own reasons for wanting to take Arabic classes will be unique to you, but there may be benefits of studying the language you were unaware of. Students of all ages can experience the bene

fits of working with an Arabic teacher. Keep reading for more exciting reasons to dive into this wonderful language!

Many Reasons to Take Arabic Lessons

Are you interested in lessons for your child, or do you want to learn to speak Arabic as an adult? Either way, in-person or online Arabic lessons can help you maximize your linguistic potential. The personalized guidance of a private teacher helps you or your child stay motivated and allows you to reach your goals in the fastest way possible. With each Arabic class, you’ll be able to work on your conversational skills and get your questions answered in real time.

From early age to elderly life, there is always a place for learning. TakeLessons makes it easy to connect with the perfect Arabic teacher from anywhere in the world so that you can sharpen your language skills in a fun and accessible way. Learning new words and phrases is as easy as video chatting with a friend when you have the right teacher on your side.

Reasons for Kids to Learn Arabic

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 enroll your child in music lessons eventually?? Another surprising benefit for kids who learn a second language is that it makes mastering a musical instrument much easier. Music is often referred to as a language in itself, and 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!

Topics You'll Learn in Arabic Classes Near You

Before starting local classes or lessons, you’ll need to decide which type of Arabic you want to focus on. Do you want to learn Egyptian Arabic or Modern Standard Arabic? No matter which dialect you choose to learn, online lessons make it possible to find the perfect Arabic teacher. That’s because you can directly connect with an expert in your favorite Arabic variation, no matter where they are in the world.

Your teacher will also help you decide if you should start at the beginner, intermediate, or advanced level. If you have some experience with Arabic in the past, you can take your skills to the next level by following the guidance of your tutor. Here are some topics you’ll learn at each level:

What You’ll Learn in Arabic for Beginners

  • The Arabic alphabet

Here are some topics you'll learn at this stage:

  • Irregular grammar rules
  • Perfect and imperfect verb tenses
  • Listening comprehension
  • Conversational skills
