Learn ARABIC for conversation or academic purposes (proper dialect "Fusha" or a variety of other middle eastern dialects)

As a language, Arabic may seem scary, whether you hear two people speaking it with a bit of an aggressive tone, or see the terrifying Alphabet being used and written in a different direction! However! Fear not! I can assure you, i felt the same way about Dutch, and was terrified to try and articulate the words and their meanings. However, after a year of going through a successful active learning course (which our classes will follow a similiar method to), and enough practice, i could confidently say i can hold my grounds, with the fear of the Dutch language being at bay !

In my 2 years of teaching experience, without the "over-use" of "English or other" languages and starting right from the beginning with Arabic, some students and friends of mine were able to speak Arabic with me, in addition to writing full essays, and even understood the general grammatical structure of the language, all of which took no more than a couple of months.

However, it is necessary to keep in mind that Arabic is the second toughest language to learn after Chinese "Mandrin", meaning that expectations should be kept realistic, with time and practice being key.A year should suffice someone to be able to claim that they are at a "A1-B2" LEVEL, which is almost in the intermediate Zone.

For our classes, THREE TYPES or METHODS could be chosen from:
1- The active learning extensive Method
2- The "school" Method
3- The "specific university subject tutoring" Method.

1- For the first and second methods, i will usually devise a specialized text book (Word/PDF, no need to hurt trees and print...) which will include all that we need throughout the course from necessary readings, literature, and grammar of the language. this book will be modified accordingly to the purpose of learning the language that you could clarify to me beforehand (whether academic in a specific field of science, or any other purposes...)

2- However, if your goal is purely conversation, and does not include learning proper Arabic (Fusha), the method of teaching differs a little. Here only the "school method" applies. Let me elaborate: In schools, we are taught to read and write "MUM, DAD" before we learn our ABCs, Thus "conversation" will be the main focus, accompanied by brief and on the surface piecing of the principles of the grammar, punctuation, and other related aspects whenever a new one is at hand.

3-Finally, if you are studying any of the Arts or Majors in University, and you need specific help concerning Arabic Subjects (Ba. Master. PHD levels), specific short classes, through the third method, will be offered, and through which we can: answer all your question, explain anything that you are having trouble with, and specific help that could also be offered according to your needs.

Extra information

There is no issue in not having any knowledge what so ever about the Arabic language. In addition, for those who speak Dutch and french, i can speak both languages fairly, so we could sometimes depend on translating and studying with any of the two.

About Me

I come from a mixture of Armenian, Syrian, and Lebanese roots! My family is composed from both sides, but we now reside in Belgium since almost five years. I spend my time studying law and criminology, both at the master level, At the University of London (UCL) and KU Leuven (KUL), respectively. Beforehand i obtained a bachelor in Psychology From the Lebanese American University (LAU) in Lebanon. I am also certified with 3 years of experienced in Communication and body language skills. Throughout my academia journey, i was able to learn English to a native level (C2), French and Italian. I followed Dutch courses in Belgium, as well as a bit of Spanish. Thus, as you could tell already i am a fan of learning languages ! My next goals would be Japanese, Hebrew, and the language of my ancestors, Armenian.

My hobbies are many, yet simple. Gaming is a big part of it, and electronic music production takes a huge chunk of my interest. I enjoy participating in debates, the occasional politics, and traveling has been much more feasible and interesting to me than before.

Lebanese American University (LAU) BS Psychology

Coach - Public Speaking // Public Speaking // Public Speaking
ENGLISH BELOW Do you feel insecure when speaking in front of groups? Do you feel you could have more fun speaking in front of groups? Are you afraid that the content of what you say will be lost? Many people find it quite difficult to speak in front of groups. You may have heard the advice 'imagine everyone's in their underpants', but it didn't help (or you probably won't be reading this text). Maybe you don't find public speaking all that difficult or scary, but you think you can get a lot more out of it. I would like to help you become a better, more relaxed and open speaker. The coaching is completely tailored to your needs and needs, but we work, for example, on preparing, analyzing and/or writing a text, body posture and language, use of voice and empathy. I was trained as an actress and singer, two subjects that give me a lot of baggage and inspiration when coaching public speaking. I have more than 8 years of experience as a coach and teacher. /// I specialize in coaching individuals in how to present themselves on stage or before a group. My goal is to focus on your own specific goals and help you develop your skills. Whether you need to speak in public for work or school, or just want to get rid of stage fright before giving that wedding speech, I can help you better yourself and gain confidence! We work on different levels: analyzing and/or writing text, performing, body language and voice. I have a strong background in singing and acting and have been working as a teacher, coach and director for over years.

Learn Italian from a native speaker: grammar, oral and written skills!
Hello, I'm Verdiana and I'm a Master student at KU Leuven. I tutor students and offer private lessons since I was 16, thus I've gained quite some experience on the topic. My main focus is on foreign language because I've studied them for 5 years. Here in Leuven though, I would like to teach Italian, my native language. During a one-hour-class, you'll get the chance to explore the (difficult but fascinating) Italian grammar, to practice both your oral and written skills and to learn some useful Italian phrases. Don't hesitate to contact me in case of any question!

Classical Arabic for academic support or Learning a new language
The Arabic language can be complicated in grammar or structure. But it holds wonderful content and conveys deep emotions, thoughts, and expressions. Arabic is my native language and it was always one of my favorites when it comes to its structure or to the rich vocabulary, transcendent poetry... This course can be dedicated for support for academic purposes or for those curious to learn a new language.

Anna
Engels Taallessen voor alle niveaus: spreken, lezen, schrijven
I obtained a BA degree in English Language and Literature, as well as an English MA degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology at KU Leuven. This academic background has laid the foundation for my theoretical knowledge of the English language, especially my reading and writing skills. Additionally, I spent a semester in Dublin in order to improve my 'hands-on' speaking skills. I have a genuine passion for the English language which I hope to pass on to my students. For my classes, I sit down with students to discuss their needs, and attune my course content accordingly. I try to combine theory with practice to keep the classes interesting and lively. Listening and reading skills are especially important in the learning process as they are essential elements to developing an intuitive sense of a language. Furthermore, I attempt to incorporate audiovisual material in order to keep the course content engaging. I am also always happy to discuss and/or lend English books, graphic novels, podcasts, films, music, YouTube clips etc with/to my students.

Noor
English tutor: as a preparation for exams or just to learn
Ik heb een masterdiploma in de talen en studeer ook voor leerkracht. De les kan in samenspraak opgebouwd worden. Het is mogelijk in deze les te focussen op Engels spreken in plaats van schrijven, zodat je snel een vlotte taalstudent wordt. Ook kunnen we verder focussen op een meer schoolgerichte aanpak als je je bijvoorbeeld wil voorbereiden op examens.

Claire
French for beginners, with native French speaker, all age
It is never too late to learn a language! The classes I offer will be cut out specifically for each student, from beginners to intermediate levels, to fit their needs and wants best. We will cover the basics of grammar, conjugation but also some conversation tips, and ready made sentences useful in daily life. Each student might also have their own passions, therefore, it seems as important as the rest to teach them the vocabulary behind. Learning is easier when done in amusement and around topics of interest.

Academic Essay Writing: learn to write papers and get high grades
I am a Research Master’s student in Philosophy at the KU Leuven from Toronto Canada. My native language is English and I also have background knowledge of French, however, I don’t speak it well. I teach private lessons on how to write essays in English in the Brussels and Leuven area. My academic career has provided me with a high level of proficiency in understanding of language structure, syntax and grammar. As an editor-in-chief for a university graduate journal in philosophy for two years now, I have cultivated my writing and editing abilities and want to share with you how to easily write and structure papers in order to achieve high grades. My techniques on how to write the perfect paper work for all subject areas. I have experience working with adults and children of all ages and backgrounds. I am available monday-friday as well as the weekends.

Antonio

Hello everyone! I hold a doctorate in Italian, have been teaching Italian for 5 years and hold a CELTA teaching qualification. I've been preparing students for the A-Levels and GCSE (language + literature). I can prepare you for specific examinations, language lessons in general or teach you Italian for business. The lessons are for everyone, whatever their age or level (children to adults). I will make sure that you discover the Italian culture through the lessons, learn the correct pronunciation and of course learn some grammar. I am open to your needs and can speak a few languages to make sure you understand fully the lessons (of course, we’ll try to use mostly Italian in all our lessons depending on your level). I can’t wait to meet my new students! 😊
