- About: Hello and thank you for checking my bio. I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia and I lived there for 27 years. My schooling was bilingual in Arabic and English from elementary to high school. Furthermore, I have graduated from King AbdulAziz University in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with a degree in medicine and a minor in Arabic literature. The Arabic language is not confined to a single region or country, but rather it is the official language of many countries across different continents. Arabic is also considered a secondary language in many Muslim majority countries. There are many different dialects of Arabic and I am proud to be proficient in most of them. That includes: Arabian Gulf countries (Saudi Arabia, United Arabic Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Yemen) Iraq Egypt The Levantine (Syria, Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon) Libya Tunisia Algeria Morocco. Why learn Arabic? I have taught many students and each had their own reasons. Some were business students with aspirations to conduct or expand their business in Dubai or other regions in the Middle East. Some students wanted to go on tours in the Holy lands or Egypt and wanted a grasp on the language before embarking on the trip. Others were intellectuals who wanted to expand their minds and better understand the middle eastern culture. I believe in using a step-by-step approach in helping you achieve your goals. That is achieved by the fine integration of technology in the learning material during our sessions. I look forward to helping you learn one of the most poetic languages in the world.
