    Assalamualaykum, I teach Fusha/ MSA ( Modern Standard Arabic/) online. Lessons are delivered through skype using screen sharing technology. By learning MSA you are able to communicate all Arabs as MSA is understood in Arab countries) read news papers , magazines etc . You can also understand news and other programs on Tv . I also teach classical Arabic which enables you to understand The Holy Quran ,Hadis (sayings of the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and other classical texts. .I give my students complete understanding of Arabic grammar (words formation ,verbs conjugations , pronouns ,sentence formation and how vowel variations at the end of words change their meanings, etc) so that they are able to speak and write correctly. I make them capable of using Arabic dictionary which is one of the difficult aspect of learning Arabic. So, I can help you learn Arabic, reading Quran with tajweed, understanding Quran, and other Islamic knowledges.
