My name is Ahmed, excited to teach here but before we start let me tell you a bit about myself. My passion for teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning and exploring. I grew up in Alexandria, Egypt and attended college at Alexandria University, where I studied Law and International Relations.
I am passionate about many things, I like art, music, cultures and travels makes me happy. I consider myself lucky to travel to many countries through my work for an airline. I was able to explore different languages and cultures. I believe to really understand a language you need to actively learn about the culture, history and art. Communicating to people was a key throughout my trips, with people you learn something new everyday.
I'm a native Arabic speaker and Egyptian dialect is my mother tongue. I'm also familiar with many other Arabic dialects. I see the beauty of all languages and the especial beauty of the Arabic language for its calligraphic art.
I worked for the Arabic Overseas Flagship Program at Alexandria University, The American Councils for International Education program held at (TAFL) Center for Teaching Arabic as a foreign language at Alexandria University.
My teaching style is communicative and participatory, I developed lessons depending on the needs of my students and their listening, reading, writing or speaking skills.
I hope one day after classes you remember me and you would say "Oh! Everything right now makes perfect sense to me! I don't really have to try to understand anyone anymore - I just get it."
