Nazifa

Mar7aba! Ahlan wa sahlan! My name is Nazifa and I will be teaching the Beginner and Elementary Arabic classes 🙂

I am an Arabic and History graduate from SOAS University and have spent several years in the West Bank mastering 3mmiya (spoken Levantine Arabic)! I am an experienced teacher and I love teaching and learning new languages and believe in intercultural exchange being facilitated through languages! In my spare time, I love to read, write and have a vast collection of notebooks and stationary! I am so excited to teach this beautiful language through a creative and interactive approach 🙂

About Elementary:

The elementary course is designed for those who have little to a good grasp and understanding of Arabic, with previous exposure to the language. It is also for those who completed the Beginners course, and who started Elementary in September 2020.

This course focuses on Spoken Levantine Arabic, which is mainly spoken in the Levant region and is widely spoken and understood!

We will be covering a number of scenarios and topics; from going shopping to talking about work, travelling etc! Where possible, I will be making references to different dialects and MSA (Modern Standard Arabic) to give an overview and deeper insight into the language.

By the end of the course you will be able to talk about yourself in detail including emotions, work, and also learn many cultural references and phrases which are commonly used across Arabic speaking countries.

During the course we will be immersing in Arabic culture using our language within role play and interaction to make learning fun!

I also encourage students to bring potential discussion topics/songs/poetry which we can engage in using vocabulary we will learn throughout the course!

Classes operate a sliding scale fee policy – you choose what you can afford.

Depending on your financial situation each 2-hour class will cost you:

£15 – Standard – // – £20 – Supporter

All profits from these fees go towards running our free English classes for refugees and migrants – so the more you pay, the more people we can support and teach!
