Khaled is a Syrian-American who has been teaching in the US since 2013. With experience in teaching all levels of MSA, Levantine, Egyptian, and Arabic Gulf area dialects, Khaled has no shortage of Arabic knowledge for his classes to learn. Outside of teaching, Khaled lives an impressive life filled with travel, sampling cuisines, watching movies or Broadway shows, attending concerts, learning (even more) languages, dancing, going to the gym, and going to parties.
He knows the class material like the back of his hand. He's very energetic and I never feel even a little tired during class.
We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we're typically asked, along with our responses
All of our group classes meet for a total of 20 hours of live instruction. Some courses meet 2 hours once a week for 10 sessions, while others meet 1 hour twice a week for a total of 20 sessions.
We know our students and teachers probably have holiday plans, so we don't hold classes on Federal holidays.
Plans change - we get it. You have until 7 days before the start date of your group course to make any cancelations or transfers. After that, we unfortunately cannot offer any refunds.
If you feel your level isn't the right fit, reach out to [email protected] before your second class and we will transfer you to a better fit, free of charge!
Only students 18 years or older can participate in this course. If you are looking for options for students under 18, please check out our Kids and Teens page!
As long as the group course has not been cancelled or it has spots left, there is no deadline to sign up. However, we strongly encourage you to sign up at least two weeks in advance in order to secure your spot!
