Arabic is my native tongue and I have been teaching the language to adult learners for over 24 years. My experience covers teaching in academia, government and private colleges and universities. I have also been certified as an oral proficiency tester in Arabic by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, though not currently active. As well, I have conducted numerous oral proficiency interviews for government employees using government language skill levels.
