アラビア語プライベートレッスン | Private Arabic Lessons

I’ve been meaning to write about it and totally forgot about it, but I started learning Arabic in January of this year.



His name is Ahmad and he teaches Arabic to foreigners at the University of Damascus during the day and gives private lessons at home in the afternoon.

I’m teaching at a university, so my teaching skills are pretty good, but my attitude is horrible, like fiddling with my phone and yawning in class. I thought about quitting a few times. However, it’s quite difficult to find a teacher who can teach Arabic well to a foreigner.





疲れはしましたが結構面白く、いい勉強になりました。 またチャンスがあれば是非会いに行きたいと思っています。

Also, the text I’m using now, the one actually used at the University of Damascus, is very easy to understand.

So, from the merit of the Arabic teaching ability of Ahmad and the excellence of the text, even if the demerit of the attitude of Ahmad is subtracted from the merit of the demerit of Ahmad is positive enough, so it is worth learning to Ahmad, and it has come to the judgment that it is continued.

By the way, Ahmad has students from many other countries besides me, including Belgium, France and Turkey. I often have the opportunity to talk with them and it has become a place for me to learn Arabic as well as a place for international exchange.

When I was in Japan, I didn’t have much interest in international exchange, but when I came here, I learned how interesting it is to talk with people from other countries, not to mention Syrians. Not only do you get to know the other person’s country, but also their view of Japan is different from country to country, and by talking about yourself, you get to understand Japan afresh and discover a lot.

There are many foreigners in Damascus, and there are also many people who come to Damascus to work in addition to students. The other day I had the opportunity to get to know the Russians.
He said he was here to do some work, but he spoke no Arabic and almost no English, so he had a hard time communicating. This is my first experience of communicating with someone who doesn’t speak the language at all.

We used simple English, gestures, Japanese (Sushi, Fuji, etc.), Russian (Vodka, Moscow, etc.) and other languages that we knew each other.
It was tiring but quite interesting and I learned a lot. If I get another chance, I’d love to go and see them again.
