What others say.

  • Our tutor was very knowledgeable, supportive, so kind and generous. I enjoyed attending the classes every week and learnt a lot about Arabic language and culture.

  • Through CCE I completed levels 1 and 2 Arabic recently. It had been many years since I had studied the language. I hesitated to attempt level 3 but enrolled in any case. Although I still have much of that level of the language to learn I am grateful for the help and encouragement given to me during my recently completed level 3, and thank the tutor for the enjoyable handling of a class group having varying knowledge of Arabic.

  • We had a wonderful tutor that created a welcoming, engaging and encouraging teaching environment. As ever, I really enjoyed this course with CCE and look forward to continuing my Arabic studies there.

  • I find studying Arabic languge very interesting, but the way our teacher is holding the group and class together is making it even more appealing. Their approach, kindness and love for life, and people, the way they share their knowledge is touching and it moves our hearts and souls.
