Hi I'm Dua,
I am an Award-Winning educator and native Arabic speaker. I currently work as a Lecturer in beautiful New Zealand and if I am not busy teaching, I am likely to be making the most of my picturesque surroundings by exploring nature with my partner. I also love cooking and curling up with a good book.
I understand very well the frustration of learning a new language; particularly if that language feels overwhelming from a beginner's perspective due to the lack introductory structured courses that can be scaffolded over time. Hence, I have created high-quality, affordable introductory Arabic courses that take you from complete Arabic beginner to a confident learner as you advance in Arabic.
Why learn Arabic with me?
Instead of spending hours trying to piece together information and spending money on expensive courses that focus purely on learning dialogue without offering the opportunity to learn the foundations of the Arabic language, I will get you started with everything you need to be able to read, write and pick up grammar and vocabulary right away, while doing this online from the comfort of your own home and in your own time.
Why learn Modern Standard Arabic (MSA)?
While I like the idea of dialects, I believe that the foundation that you get from MSA will then allow you to branch out to learning other dialects. MSA also offers the best option to study Arabic grammar and root words to continue building your vocabulary.
Although MSA is not an official dialect of any single country, it is the official language used in media and communication across the Arab world which makes it widely understood across all Arab countries.
