My name is Lev and I am studying for my Masters degree in Middle Eastern Studies at Tel Aviv University. In order to pursue the academic goals for myself as well as for my own personal curiosities, it is imperative that I learn Arabic.
So far, I can translate texts with a dictionary in front of me, but I need practice writing Standard Arabic as well as speaking Arabic.
I am originally from Russia and speak Russian fluently, but grew up in the U.S., which is why English is my strongest language. I also speak Hebrew at an advanced level.
I have a very busy schedule, so for now I probably can not do a language exchange but am interested in keeping a daily blog for review and I will be happy to review the diaries of others in English.
