MarHaba! I am half Jordanian of Circassian descent and half American. I have a Master's in Second Language Teaching and I teach Arabic as a foreign language here in the US, both MSA and Levantine Arabic. I hope to help you become more familiar and interested in the Arabic language and culture.


  1. Yasamin N.:

    The topic of childhood/your childhood is a great topic. I really like reading the short fill-in-the-blank exercise and how I could apply it to my current students of Arabic.

    Do you also have similar exercises on general business Arabic?
