Here is what some of our students have said about ArabiClearly:

Ibrahim is an absolutely brilliant tutor - encouraging, patient and always able to help with my learning process! The lessons are taught at a pace that suits me, and I feel I have made real improvement with my Arabic since I started having lessons with Ibrahim. I would thoroughly recommend Ibrahim to anyone wanting to learn Arabic!

Many thanks to Ibrahim, amazing, passionate and absolutely competent teacher.  I’ve really liked the whole course and it has been the best teaching I’ve ever had about Arabic language (including University Teaching!).

I have been having Arabic classes with Ibrahim Othman for the last six months and consider him to be an inspiring teacher. I have considerable experience of Arabic language tuition, having completed a degree in Arabic and Modern Middle Eastern Studies at Oxford University and having studied Arabic at the French Institute in Damascus, at Birzeit University in the West Bank, and at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. I feel this experience puts me in a good position to be able to assess Ibrahim Othman’s teaching and I am struck by his ability to make learning seem effortless. He is patient and encouraging and manages to introduce grammar lessons and vocabulary into whatever exercises we are doing.

  To Whom It May Concern: 

I am pleased to write a very positive reference regarding Mr. Ibrahim Othman. Ibrahim is teaching my son Noah (16) classical Arabic.

Noah is passionate about literature and Ibrahim’s teaching has lived up to our expectations; he has proved able to broaden his areas of expertise in order to meet the interests of a very demanding pupil. Ibrahim has demonstrated great commitment in teaching my son every week; he has been very reliable in his attendance and an exceptional timekeeper.

He has wonderful communication skills with young people; he has kept my son interested, motivated and most of all he has passed on his passion for the language.

I sincerely wish every teenager could live Noah’s experience.

Ibrahim is a great teacher and I like the way he teaches and the way he is helpful with examples.

I am an American businessman focused on building a new investment business in Libya. I have extensive experience in learning a challenging foreign language and putting it to use in a real-world working environment. When I came to Ibrahim I explained that conversational Arabic was not my objective but rather I wanted to develop a deep understanding of the engineering of the language that would help me to replicate my experience learning Russian many years ago. 

I found his approach to teaching perfect. With Ibrahim’s help I rapidly developed a sense for the structure of Arabic which enabled me to create a context for accumulating new vocabulary and grammar. I highly recommend working with Ibrahim if you are serious about learning Arabic and want to develop language as a business tool – not a way to direct a taxi driver.
