Prerequisites:

  • This is a Beginner conversation course no prerequists are required.

Our Instagram “word-of-the-day” and instructional YouTube videos will give you some basic vocabulary and grammar lessons, but you must consider signing up for our Levantine Arabic Masterclass. This course is designed to help you complete beginner’s level, and teaches through instructional videos. So, there is less pressure to be conversationally fluent.

      Mirna (session 1)

    Marhaba! Eveyone,
    I am Mirna, a devoted educator with a Master’s degree. I have a background as a content manager and creator, where I played a crucial role in developing digital educational content and customized books for underprivileged children.
    My diverse experience spans teaching Levantine Arabic and various subjects for both kids and adults. Beyond the traditional classroom setting, I actively engaged in organizing school activities and supporting the education of Syrian refugee students.
    Additionally, I’ve volunteered my time to coordinate meetings, trips, and camps for children and youth groups. As a committed individual, my aim is to make meaningful contributions to the field of education and community development.

     

      Carol (Session 2)

    As a native Arabic speaker, sharing the love for my language and culture is very important to me. I have been teaching Arabic since 2010. I have developed Arabic curriculums for both kids and adults. After more than 11 years of teaching, success has strengthened my foundation to provide our youngest generation with the intellectual stimulation and educational advantage gained through early exposure to other languages. I have published three Levantine textbooks and children stories in the Levantine dialect. I’m currently working on my 4th Adult textbook.

    Through Nasma, I want to highlight the beauty of the Arab World and positively impacts today’s youth through education and acceptance.
