I thoroughly enjoyed every lesson that I had with Nahed, she is an excellent teacher whose kindness and patience made learning arabic less daunting for me. I was encouraged and equally challenged by her teaching which meant I was able to progress at my own pace. I would definitely recommend Nahed to anyone wishing to learn the Arabic language and am very grateful for all the time and effort she put in to help me learn also.
Kind Regards,

"Deputy Head of Mission at the British Embassy in Riyadh"
Omar Nassra gave me twelve Arabic lessons in April June 2014. I was a complete beginner. I found Omar an excellent teacher and achieved more in the limited time available to me than I had expected. I learned the alphabet, and am now able to read and write; we covered some basic grammar; I gained a reasonable vocabulary (perhaps 300 400 words) in areas relevant to my forthcoming job as Deputy Head of Mission at the British Embassy in Riyadh and to life there; and I feel I have an understanding of the way in which Arabic works sentence construction etc. All in all, this should help considerably as I assimilate the culture in Saudi Arabia, and gives me sound framework for further study in-country. Omar was friendly, patient and clear, understanding my needs and pitching the lessons appropriately. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a teacher of Arabic. I should be happy to be contacted direct (wildash@tusker.co.uk) in case of need.

Nahed is an excellent teacher of Levantine Arabic, I was starting from a complete beginner level and Nahed guided me though the arabic script introducing new letters and words when she thought that I was ready. I found her personal and very friendly approach encouraged me and I greatly enjoyed my lessons. Nahed was very supportive and patient, taking time to ensure I understood all parts of the course, Nahed also provided extra audio and other learning materials to assist me with my homework and understanding of verbal pronounciation. Nahed has an impressive understanding of Levantine and Modern Standard Arabic and took time to highlight any differences

Nahla is a fantastic teacher. She is very patient and works at the level that is right for you. She very quickly adapts to how a student learns and teaches to a method that helps you learn that language quickly and well. Her personality makes the lessons productive and also fun. I really look forward to my lessons

Hussein, my Arabic tutor is originally from Egypt, but he is well versed in all other Arabic dialects. Hussein is very patient and always takes the time to explain the more complex points of this beautiful language. Im very pleased with my progress to date, and look forward to further improving my Arabic. I can highly recommend Hussein to anyone who wants to learn or improve their Arabic; or for those who want to know more about the culture of Arab countries

Nahed has been an excellent teacher of Levantine Arabic. I particularly found her personal and friendly approach conducive to a good environment for me to learn the language. She also tailored the lessons when she knew that I could read, write and speak Modern Standard Arabic well. This proved to be very effective as she would ask me to translate not only from English to Levantine Arabic but also with an MSA equivalent too. She also began to adapt the lessons well, finding more innovative ways of helping me learn (such as using more audio and video clips as part of my homework

I have been taking colloquial Levantine lessons with Nahed for about 6 months now. Having taken Fusha lessons a few years ago and been disappointed with the lack of progress in my speaking, I was surprised to find that Nahed got me to a basic conversational level so quickly! Although she uses a course plan she is great at tailoring lessons to focus on any of your weaknesses or on any topics that may be of particular interest to you. She is patient, encouraging, and very personable. She has a passion for the Levantine dialect that is contagious! I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Nahla has now been giving me classes for the past 4 weeks or so, and I can gladly say that Im more than happy with the way the course is being managed, organised, planned and presented. Nahla is very easy to get on with, she is understanding and flexible in the fact that we are working at my pace; not too fast, and not too slow. The fact that Nahla has her origins in Syria, offers a unique insight in to accent, dialect and local idioms of the Syrian dialect (which I am learning) which otherwise may not have been given by different tutors.I realise that I am the student with the most hours given on Nahlas schedule, and I appreciate this very much; we have 12 hours a week together, and i can honestly say that it is a pleasure to be in each others company, I feel like im making fast progress.
Very happy- thank you very much!

Nahla is an excellent arabic tutor. She is organised, patient, professional and serious about her work. Her lesson plans are always varied and stimulating. She explains complex grammatical rules in Arabic clearly and simply. Nahla also encourages me to work hard and succeeded in everything I do. She is a pleasure to work with and I look forward to all my lessons with her.

Nivien Helmy London Arabic Tuition

I have been studying Arabic with Nivien for almost a year and I have thoroughly enjoyed my classes with her. Niviens lessons are always informative and practical and are given in a relaxed and friendly style. She always manages to find interesting materials (articles, books, music, videos etc.) to support her lessons and she is extremely good at explaining the cultural context of the language.
Nivien has a natural gift for teaching and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Arabic.

I began studying Egyptian dialect with Nivien Helmy in January 2014 through London Arabic Tuition, and am very pleased that I chose this route of study. I travel to Egypt regularly but had no previous knowledge of Arabic at all I was a complete beginner! But as many of the people I know and spend time with in Egypt have limited English, it was time for me to learn to speak their language! Nivien has been a fantastic tutor. While my main focus was to learn conversational Arabic, with the ability to speak over the phone, I have also learned to read and write basic script. Nivien always made an effort to ensure that her teaching was focussed on what I needed, not just teaching straight out of a textbook, and she was always happy to answer my varied questions about Egyptian life, customs and norms which was immensely helpful in gaining a better understanding not just of the language, but of Egyptian culture. I enjoyed working with Nivien very much she is a highly competent language tutor, always so helpful, patient and understanding of the hurdles English speakers face when learning Arabic. Even better, my Egyptian friends have complimented me on the progress I have made in such a short time, something that I never would have been able to achieve in a group class or online course. Learning a new language can be challenging but I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey into Arabic so far. I am thrilled with the results that I have achieved, and would recommend Nivien and London Arabic Tuition to anyone who is serious about learning Arabic.

I have been studying Levantine Arabic with Nahed for over a year and have been very impressed with her gentle calm and warm manner. She is always warm approachable and reliable but more than that very patient! Arabic is a challenging language but Nahed really makes the lessons stress-free and enjoyable. All in all I would really recommend Nahed as a teacher

As the new year began, I am writing to say that I am happy with my teacher Nahla. Ever since I began arabic lessons with her I improved a lot. I am now able to talk with more confidence, to understand when one speaks slowly to me and to express pretty much whatever I need to express. It feels so good to speak arabic!!!!!

I gained confidence these past months that I am on the right path.

Many thanks

I started studying Levantine Arabic with London Arabic last month. As a complete beginner, I am amazed at how quickly I've been able to learn basic words and phrases and to read and write the alphabet. The style of teaching makes it easy and enjoyable for you to learn at your own pace.

Thank so much for the great lessons. The methods of teaching are absolutely fantastic as it is very efficient and enjoyable.
I am confident that soon I will be able to speak Arabic with the family of my husband, who is Syrian. I am so grateful to finally have found such a great and patient teacher. I am also amazed that within only 3 lessons I am starting to talk a bit and understand some basic conversation! I would recommend London Arabic Tuition to anyone who wants to learn Arabic.

I have been studying with London Arabic Tuition for three months now. The tuition is engaging, and the teacher manages to tailor the pace to my needs, abilities and interests. Furthermore, he places an emphasis on fluid speaking and listening as a precursor to written fluency, an approach I endorse. All in all a good experience

I've been studying Levantine Arabic with London Arabic Tuition for 2 months and I'm enjoying every minute! I find the lessons very informative and I'm learning much faster than I expected. I have tried other teachers in the past but LAT is the most effective.

I would thoroughly recommend studying Arabic with this company.

I started studying Modern Standard Arabic with London Arabic Tuition recently, and found that within weeks both my reading and writing had improved very quickly.
The style of teaching allows you to learn at your own pace which means each student can get as much out of their lesson as possible.

I would recommend studying Arabic with London Arabic Tuition to any student wishing to learn the language

After getting stuck and frustrated with learning MSA in typical group courses with 10 or more classmates I moved to London Arabic Tuition. London Arabic Tuition customises lessons to your individual needs and moves away from typical textbook teaching methods. The learning experience gets further enhanced the smaller the learning group is. As I am learning Arabic out of interest only, I am focussing mainly on learning how to speak in spoken Arabic which is different (and easier) than MSA. Speaking Arabic is initially all about using the words you learned and not about endless vocabulary and grammar. And guess what: soon I was able to chit-chat with my local dry-cleaner and to read the signs on Middle-Eastern Stores in London. And besides all this, the lessons are a lot of fund and always pass very quickly, as diverse teaching methods are applied. The only thing I wish for is that I had more spare time to study Arabic
