This month, Arab Academy is featuring Omar Ashmawi from the UK. Omar joined our classroom program in Cairo for 2 weeks. Read on to hear about his experience learning Arabic. 

Why did you choose to learn Arabic?

Because I’m half Arabic and need to learn.

Why did you choose to learn at Arab Academy?

My sister came here last year and recommended it.

How has learning Arabic impacted your life?

Easier to speak to my Egyptian family.

Has Arab Academy changed or impacted your life in any other way?  If so, how?

Opened the door to speak Arabic comfortably with strangers and family, I’ll come back to get fluent.

How Arab Academy is unique compared to other language centers/ online courses you have tried?

Not really tried any others so can’t say.

What would you tell someone who is interested in learning Arabic, but hasn’t yet tried it out?

To try it and go for it, it is hard but rewarding.
