Samar has been my teacher ever since I arrived in Beirut almost two years ago. I feel extremely lucky to have met her. Although she was not my first Arabic teacher, she is certainly the best I have ever met. Beyond having a very effective Arabic language teaching methodology of her own, she is also very gifted in framing the learning of a language in its cultural and historical contexts, making the learning process richer and more interesting. Learning Arabic is definitely a big challenge but with Samar as your teacher, it is a challenge well worth facing.
