I have been attending the Egyptian Arabic course of Yalla Araby for three years. Thanks to the great commitment, flexibility, didactical competence, cultural expertise and humor in the lessons, my passion for the Arabic language and culture have arisen again and again. In consequence, the spiral of obligations, stress and lack of discipline did not dominate during the rest of the week. The lessons are adjusted with great sensitivity to my situation, no matter whether I had a tough week of work behind me, was concerned by private issues or had not done the homework. The teacher always challenges me and makes sure, that I make the maximum possible progress. The well-structured and varied lessons are enriched with cultural background knowledge and anecdotes about the Arabic world, and in particular about Egypt. I’ve brought along the passion for the Arabic language and culture. But that I didn’t give up, but was able to acquire the linguistic foundations, and that can now realize my dream of an extended stay in Egypt, is due to Yalla Araby! Thank you Mohamed, you’re the best! I am looking forward to continuing with conversation lessons upon my return!
