I am a native-Arabic teacher from Palestine and I am here to help you improve your Arabic and make you rock it. I hold a bachelor degree in English language and Literature and have a good experience in teaching it as well.
Me as a Teacher
I specialize in teaching Levantine Arabic for non-native speakers, and I have a wide experience teaching MSA as well. I can also help you understand different Arabic dialects.
My lessons & teaching style
My methods are pretty simple and different from the traditional ways that make learning a new language look like a never ending process. I create a very relaxed and fun environment for my students and I tailor my lessons to their levels and needs. I work with all levels of Arabic proficiency and different age groups. I focus on developing Arabic communication skills and understanding fully how the language functions. I can offer different ways on how to build and expand your vocabulary and understand grammar better.
Looking forward to meeting you! Cheers!

Raghda is a fantastic teacher. she uses multiple media and is very good at explaining grammatical concepts and specific Palestinian phrases. I learn so much, not just Arabic, but also about the culture and people. Never a dull moment!

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire” - W. B. Yeats
The above captures perfectly my first lesson with Raghda as well as the other 99 lessons that have followed since. I remember my thoughts prior to that lesson clearly. The best I hoped for was the ability to say a few things in Arabic. I thought that reading and writing Arabic were beyond me. I remember the fear I felt when Raghda said: “You can and you have to learn to read and write” with a calm confidence full of certainty. Like Prometheus, she gave me the gift of fire. She brought light to a place that was hijacked by doubts and fear.
I remember how emotional I got the first time I saw an Arabic sign on the street and I could read it. It was the feeling of reconnecting to something dear that was lost or forgotten. I can now read, write, listen to and speak Arabic.
Great teachers are rare. Teachers that change your life however are even rarer. Raghda belongs to the latter.
Thank you Raghda.

I enjoyed the class. My teacher spoke clearly and we were able to have a good conversation even though I spoke broken arabic 😅
She was friendly & explained things I didn't understand.
I hope to continue the lessons & become more fluent in arabic inshaAllaah.
