Wow!!! So much information in just a few pages from the book. I am having a ball with our lessons. The lessons are challenging, yet they are 'do-able'. I am so happy I decided to study Arabic and taking the time and effort to learn how to read, write and speak in Arabic. It will be a long time before I get comfortable, but seeing the continued progress just keeps me wanting to pursue it more. Thank you Mona!

Fantastic lesson, entirely in Arabic. We worked on listening comprehension with a video. I had watched part of it in advance and prepared questions on the difficult bits, and Mona had prepared answers. She's great at explaining the meanings of Arabic words in Arabic, with examples. She had even found another video with an example of a word I'd asked about, so I could hear it in a different context.

My first lesson with Mona was excellent. She was professional and very enthusiastic. When I had questions she was clear and concise with her explanations. We practiced dialogue and I learned many new vocabulary words. We even had some fun discussing the complex protocol for when someone sneezes. HA! I look forward to our next lesson, inshallah.

This was our first session, and focused on enabling Mona to get a sense of my strengths and weaknesses in Arabic, as well as defining the goals of the lessons. She was extremely helpful and professional, clearly knows a great deal about modern teaching methods, and has good suggestions about how to proceed.

Another good lesson, and as always, Mona was right on time to start. Mainly we discussed the Syrian refugee problem, focusing on a news clip I watched yesterday about Syrians in the Calais camp in France, and the different approaches France and England are taking regarding admitting refugees and the problems those are engendering. We also branched off into the current problems the EU is facing, like Greek debt. AND importantly, we covered active and passive forms of تطور And also, like always, Mona sent me a document containing words and expressions we used during our class.

شكرا يا منا I feel much more comfortable with conjugating verbs. I definitely needed this lesson and conjugating the verbs in your safe hands made me much more confident. God wiling , it will become a little easier. Talk to you in a few days!!

Thank you Mona!! These reading sessions are incredibly valuable to me. I definitely believe this is a very important skill that I not only need at this moment, but I WANT to develop now. I enjoy reading "الغرفول", while listening to you read the story aloud. See You Soon!!

Thank you SOOO MUCH Mona!!! I was definitely hitting a snag with understanding how to do a lesson and you had the patience of an angel and made sure I could do the exercise. I can laugh now, but it definitely humbles me. You are an excellent model teacher. I will definitely become a better teacher this semester. WOW!!! Excellent lesson regarding the definite article and the differences in use. JUST EXCELLENT!!!

Today we practiced the assigned homework conversation, both formal and informal. Had fun reporting on a city in Egypt that I've never heard of. Added new vocabulary and will be using flashcard program to help learn them. I also learned some societal norms in Egypt. Another great session with Mona!

Mona! Thank you for your patience and ONCE AGAIN for your persistence. You are an EXCELLENT role model for teachers. It's like I am blindfolded and I have to feel my way along a wall until I can find the opening to the next room (or, until I just take off my blindfold). You gently and patiently provide me the directions to get myself through the door without picking me up and putting me there. WELL DONE MONA!!! (it would have been easier for me, if I had done my homework, 😉 // lesson learned, I hope, in shaa allah!)

Thank you Mona!! You always figure out what's bugging me and you are able to help me dissect that 'bug' so it's no longer a bug but a friendly tool I can use. Thank you!!!

Gaye Proctor USA April 28, 2016

Thank you Mona!! I feel sooooo happy that I can read a little faster and am recognizing the vowels much better than before!! I'm so glad we are taking the time to practice reading!! See you soon!

Gaye Proctor USA April 28, 2016
