This month, Arab Academy is featuring Léo Weber from France. Leo joined our classroom program in Cairo for 10 weeks. Read on to hear about his experience learning Arabic.

Why did you choose to learn Arabic?
 I like the Middle East and the challenge of learning a totally new language in a different culture.

Why did you choose to learn at Arab Academy?
I found it online and read the comments and an old student of Arab Academy I personally know recommended it to me.

How has learning Arabic impacted your life?
I am now able to watch/ read news in Arabic and understand a bit of it. It opens even more knowledge to me.

How Arab Academy is unique compared to other language centers/ online courses you have tried?
It was better than the Ali Baba Academy in Aman (Jordan) because the teachers push you and really try to make you advance a lot.

What would you tell someone who is interested in learning Arabic, but hasn’t yet tried it out?
It is indeed not easy and you really have to want it. You will have to learn a lot of words.
