What next after this course?

Ustadh Javid has spent the last 10 years learning the Arabic language. Having studied under various Arabic experts in Egypt and the UK, he brings a passion for sharing what he has learnt. He is a senior student of Ustadh Mahmoud and is undergoing his teacher training programme under Ustadh’s tutelage. Having studied a number of years without a structured curriculum, he sees the benefit of having one so the student can see what he is working towards. As such, he is keen to ensure students at the Arabic College get the most out of their learning and don’t lose sight of the end goal.
Ustadh Mahmoud combines both a love for the Arabic language and a unique passion for teaching! Along with his experience teaching native students in Egypt, he has also taught for a number of years in the United Kingdom. Hence, he knows how both native and non-native students learn. As a native Egyptian from the city of Port Sa’id and having completed his elementary studies, he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in the Arabic language and Islamic Studies. Post-graduation, he worked in the largest and the leading secondary school in Port Sa’id. His prominence grew very quickly however, due to his unique teaching style and love for the language, for which he was awarded various awards including ‘the most exceptional teacher’.
