"With years of experience teaching Arabic, I am excited to help you learn this beautiful and rich language. In my classes, we focus on both the basics and more advanced aspects of Arabic, including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and of course, conversation skills. I can make you speak any of the different dialects in Morocco with with ease and self-confidence. We will also explore the cultural aspects of the language, such as food, music and traditions.
