Nehal was very patient with me. As an English speaker, it can be very hard to learn to make some of the Arabic sounds. She gave detailed resources and instruction to learn to make the back of the throat sounds that I couldn't get.

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.
I have created a method, which is a specific way to learn languages, which is the most effective for acquiring a language.
I always use revelent articles to read, TV shows to watch, books to read, radio shows to listen to, in order to incorporate Arabic as much as possible in every aspect of the student's life.

"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."

Taking Arabic Language Classes in NYC

Have you recently thought about taking Arabic classes in New York City? If so, you're sure to find many uses for this unique language. That's because Arabic is the fourth most spoken language in the world, only topped by Indian, Chinese and English.

Because of its widespread use, you'll be able to travel abroad and use your Arabic skills while sightseeing, away on business ventures, and much more. In fact, 25 countries consider Arabic their official language, including Egypt, Qatar, Chad and Saudi Arabia.

The Benefits of Taking Arabic Lessons in NYC

Besides the broader benefits of learning Arabic, there are some specific to the NYC region. First, New York City has the largest population of any US city with over eight million inhabitants, which means the Big Apple is home to plenty of diversity.

For this reason, it’s easy to find a qualified Arabic tutor in NYC. More than most places in the US, you'll also have the opportunity to mingle with native Arabic speakers. Although Arabic language classes in New York City are essential to the learning process, you'll need to immerse yourself in Arabic culture for the best results.

Since New York City has an estimated American Arab population of 160,000 this shouldn't be too difficult. Studying the language of this unique people group offers a fresh perspective on life, and delving into its history and literature is equally rewarding.

Learn Arabic in NYC with a Professional Tutor

One of the first steps in your Arabic language pursuit will be finding a skilled and qualified tutor. Who should that be? It really depends on your personal preferences and what's important to you. Here are a few possibilities worth considering right in the New York City region.

Carol H., located between Harlem and Manhattan in New York City has experience teaching children ages four and up, as well as adults. She spent much of her life living in the Middle East and loves to bring that culture to interested students. She'll have you speaking Arabic from the start to help you reach your language goals faster.

Another excellent option for Arabic lessons in New York City is Khalid H. He’s worked as a medical interpreter and has been teaching since 2012. Khalid H. also specializes in teaching students with special needs.

All About Taking Arabic Classes in NYC

Meeting up with your teacher in person provides a valuable and fun learning experience. The one-on-one approach tends to be more personable and encourages you to stick with your language goals.

You can decide with your tutor on the best place to learn Arabic in NYC. It may include your teacher's studio, your home, or an off-site location within the city. It’s up to you whether to catch a bus, subway or ride your bike to your Arabic classes in NYC. The Manhattan skyline, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Empire State Building are just a few of the sights you might take in along the way.

You could also choose to meet at a local coffee shop, such as Stumptown Coffee Roasters. If the weather is nice, meet at Bryant Park or another of the 1,700 parks in NYC - the possibilities are endless!

When you’re ready to schedule Arabic language classes in NYC, check your desired teacher's availability. Make sure you can find times that work for both you and your Arabic tutor in NYC. Our teachers are flexible, and if you'd rather learn remotely instead of in person, there are dozens of online teachers to choose from as well.

Prepping for Arabic Lessons in NYC

Once you've decided on an Arabic teacher, it’s time to prepare for your first lesson. For starters, you can pick up supplies such as flashcards, pencils and journals at Paper Source, or a similar store. Next, Edenwald Library or another public library will have resources to help you practice your skills. You may even find an Arabic dictionary there.

If you'd like to purchase some Arabic materials to keep, Brand Book Store or The Corner Bookstore should have a great selection. Your instructor may also recommend resources you can purchase online.

In between classes, make friends with some native Arabic speakers. This will help you improve your skills, and your new acquaintances will likely also be knowledgeable about the cultural opportunities near you.

For instance, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History both contain works from the middle east. This will inspire your creativity and make you fall more in love with the Arabic culture.

Lastly, Alwan for the Arts is another great option if you're interested in the performing arts. Here, you'll find Middle Eastern plays, films, concerts, dance performances and more. These cultural experiences combined with Arabic classes in NYC make learning the language much easier and more fun!
