This month, Arab Academy is featuring Tim Beemsterboer from Netherlands. Tim 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 it is always fun to learn a new language and Arabic is so different from the language I speak now.

Why did you choose to learn at Arab Academy?
Because I also wanted the experience of staying in a country where Arabic is the spoken language, and Egypt is perfect for that.

How has learning Arabic impacted your life?
It has shown me how fun it is to study a completely different language.

Has Arab Academy changed or impacted your life in any other way?  If so, how?
It has helped me to understand some Arabic which is very useful.

How Arab Academy is unique compared to other language centers/ online courses you have tried?
This was first course.

What would you tell someone who is interested in learning Arabic, but hasn’t yet tried it out?
That they should absolutely do it, because it is a lot of fun and very interesting.
