have been studying Arabic for the past year, I had different experiences and I can say that UK Arabic Language Institute is a great place to learn Arabic, every class is interesting and enjoyable. At first I did Arabic at my university and my progress was not as good as when I started here, their approach is very personal,
I started taking interest in the language when I went home and was l with my family, they would speak to me and to themselves in Arabic and at times I would sit feeling left out, when I got back I took an oath to learn at least the basic, later did I know that I was in it to win it.
As a student of Arabic at a well known university I often felt that our classes took quite a passive approach to learning. This is something I feel is broken from the first lesson in UK Arabic Language Institute. My teacher Fartun has a distinctive ability to make one feel at ease in her presence very quickly. This is important for language learning as it allows you to feel you are developing yourself in a non pressurised environment which in my opinion can be the biggest stumbling block in language acquisition. Any self conscience tendencies dissipate very quickly with Fartun and she effortlessly installs a new and invigorating sense of confidence in her student. She is very skilled socially and is a natural communicator, this helps to ensure that the learning process becomes as seamless as possible. I would recommend her to all and to this day miss my lessons with her.
Fartun is a fantastic Arabic teacher! She is a friendly tutor and encourages me to push myself. I really enjoy the material she gives me whether that’s a Kuwaiti soap opera or a popular Arabic song to translate. Her teaching methods cater for the environments we as individuals live with the occasional field trip! She’ll also go out of her way to help you outside of the lessons over the phone or email too. Fartun is an excellent Arabic tutor who will support, challenge and guide you in your Arabic studies. I highly recommend her!
Fartun is a well experienced Arabic teacher and a natural linguist. She helped me to develop my Arabic to a standard where I am able to confidently engage in basic conversation and confidently read and write basic Arabic in a matter of weeks. She provides quality learning material in class and engages in Arabic conversation to develop fluid inter-person communication skills. I highly recommend learning Arabic with Fartun.
"My tutor's style of teaching makes Arabic easy to learn. I had previously taken some lessons at a university but I found most of the lessons to be too academic and not very focused on speaking.
With the UK Arabic Language Institute I have been able to get to a basic conversational of Arabic level quickly, both in social and business settings. My tutor is patient, enthusiastic and comes up with creative ways of teaching that makes learning it enjoyable."
From the outset, Fartun invested her time and energy in me, and in just a few lessons I was making real tangible progress. She structured our time to make sure I had a good grammatical foundation before going on to the next lesson. Fair warning: she demands a lot — that I practice, I read, I watch Arabic shows and memorise all of the vocabularies from the previous lesson. She’s tough, but it shows she cares, and her approach has helped me improve much faster than before. My comprehension has improved dramatically, my vocabulary is growing like a weed, and my speaking ability is really coming along. Fartun has provided a great return on investment.
My name is Ollie, I am learning Levantine Arabic with the UK Arabic Language Institute. I have really enjoyed learning Arabic, my teacher is very kind and patient which is really important for growing my confidence to speak the language. Even outside learning the language, I enjoy the lessons as my teacher has a great sense of humour and we end up talking, in Arabic, about a huge range of interesting things. The teaching technique is very accessible and if you are prepared to put in some time you will find that your progress will come faster than you thought. I would recommend the UK Arabic Language Institute to anyone who is looking to learn any dialect in Arabic and enjoy the process whilst doing it!
