Before coming to Pacific Arabic, I'd studied Arabic in four different schools, using four different books, in two different states, under six different teachers, and I had never found a course that I thought was thoughtfully organized and well taught until Pacific Arabic.
I chose Pacific Arabic because of its practical location and hours, but have stayed because of the quality of the instruction. Students are constantly engaged in conversation by the instructors, allowing them to apply grammar points immediately to real-life sentences and situations.
The instructors are simply amazing—they offer university-caliber education at a pace that I could stick to while working full time AND still be able to progress at a steady clip. Plus you can't beat the convenience of the location!
