About Yusuf

I have studied the Arabic formally since 2003. My studies of the Arabic language began in Marrakesh, Morocco where I attained 800 hours of both Modern Standard and Classical Arabic in a time period of eight months. Moreover, I was able to continue my studies of the Arabic language in Cairo, Egypt, and attain certification not only in Modern Standard and Classical Arabic but also in Arabic Syntax and Morphology.

Furthermore, I successfully completed the Arabic Language Proficiency Test at the Arab Academy in Cairo, Egypt. I scored at the Advanced Level according to the guidelines set forth by the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). I am scheduled to take two more proficiency examinations in September 2011 from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages as well as at New York University. Lastly, I will be enrolling Fall 2011 for New York University's Translation Certificate Program.

I have studied over 15 curriculums covering various aspects of the Arabic language focusing on how to instruct Arabic to non-Arabic speakers. The currculums that I have studied deal mainly with three areas of specialty: Media and Communications, Arabic Grammar Systems, and Religous Literature.

I have taught Arabic for 5 years between private schools, small groups, and 1-on-1 tutoring. Also, I have been happily married to a Morrocan for 6 years. She has been very helpful to me in my understanding of the Arab thought, expressions, as well as culture.
