I attended the Centre Sidi Bou Said des Langues et d'Informatique in Tunisia for an summer session under the expertise of Abdulwahab Qadri. This intensive training exceeded my expectations in every way. In a short time, he moved me from beginner to intermediate level and increased my fluency a great deal. I moved up from roots and words to phrases and sentences, thanks to his unique, intense, energetic teaching method. His classes are small and focused on the students' needs. As a colleague of mine commented, his courses offer more bang for the buck than other schools. His classes are academically rigorous, but punctuated with laughter due to his personable and creative teaching style. I am trying to find a way to return and study with him again, and would recommend his teaching to any serious, dedicated Arabic student.

He knows how to bring out the very best in his students and makes learning a fun and interactive process. Learning Arabic language and culture is an absolute joy and adventure with him! Mr. Qadri is extremely talented and has my highest professional respect and recommendations.
