I spent months searching for a serious and experienced Lebanese Arabic teacher in Beirut. Samar was widely recommended by friends and she was great! In my private lessons, Samar always came with prepared lesson plans and real-world listening and comprehension activities that made living and working in Beirut easier. When I needed a haircut, we spent a day going over the vocabulary for that. When I needed to be able to understand TV news, we spent time on that. She was always flexible and went out of her way to meet my learning needs. Thanks to Samar, I was conversational in Lebanese Arabic after a few short months.
