All our teachers are native speakers from different Arabic countries (Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, UAE). Some of them hold teaching qualifications from SOAS university and have many years teaching experience. They have taught in the UK and other countries.
Our teachers understand the specific challenges that English speakers face when learning Arabic and have developed methods to overcome them.
They are all creative and use a variety of techniques and materials. Our teachers are positive, patient, flexible people with good humour. They can also advise students on how to study at home and improve their Arabic outside of the classroom.
We select our teachers for individual tuition according to your specific needs and timetable. Thanks to the specialised nature of our Arabic Institution we can offer a course that is tailor-made for you.
