After graduating with a Physics degree from Oxford University, I spent three years in Damascus, where I obtained a Diploma in Arabic and the Islamic sciences from Abi Nour seminary.
During this period, I also memorised the entire Qur'an, and studied a number of basic texts in various Islamic sciences with prominent teachers in Damascus.
Some time ago, I founded Arabic-Studio.com, which aims to provide a complete online syllabus for anyone who wants to learn Arabic.
BA (Hons) Physics - University of Oxford
Diploma - Arabic and Islamic Studies - Abi Nur, Damascus
Founder of Arabic-Studio.com
I would prefer to teach the textbooks which I wrote and which are available at Arabic-Studio.com. However, if students have a strong preference to work through a different textbook, such as the Madinah University Series or al-Kitaab al-Asaasi, that is also OK.
Very productive lesson on attached pronouns alhamdollilah. Looking forward to cementing the exercises and revising the chapter.
There is no substitute for the live lesson, of course, but Ustadh Saqib's videos (arabic-studio.com for links) give a good idea of how well organised and clear his teaching is. Recommended viewing for prospective students!
Every lesson seems to feature some priceless nugget of information that you never find in the grammar books!
Great lesson. So much crammed in and so well explained.
