Founder, Author, Teacher

Ahlen! Allow me to introduce myself - Nayla, a proud Lebanese native who has called the Netherlands home for more than 20 years. As the founder of iMasterArabic and the author of our books and method, teaching has remained my  passion throughout my 20-year career. Nothing quite compares to joy of being in the classroom with my students, where all worries fade into the background. My ultimate goal is to ignite the same passion for learning Arabic within my pupils and make every moment of their language journey a joyous one. By immersing them in the rich culture of this fascinating language, my students will be able to apply their newly acquired knowledge with ease and confidence.

Mar7aba! I'm Lena from Syria and I have been living in the Netherlands since 2013.


In Syria I studied Arabic literature. With over 25 years of experience, I have taught at both primary and secondary levels, in addition to my involvement in developing educational resources tailored to different age groups.
I have also had the opportunity to share my knowledge and expertise on the Arabic language with a diverse array of students of different ages and backgrounds in the Netherlands. 

To me, the Arabic language is a true work of art, and I find great joy in passing on its beauty to others. An excellent example of this is the phrase "Insha'Allah," which, though translated as "God willing," encompasses much more than that. This expression conveys a sense of hope and optimism, serving as a reminder to trust in a higher power.

 

Should you or anyone you know be interested in learning more about the Arabic language, I would be delighted to share my knowledge and expertise.
