wpid-ahlan-wa-sahlan.jpg wpid-e915d4552967b6e6d9e3252aa8406ed4.jpegAhlan wa sahlan! I’m Ruth and I started this blog to share resources with teachers and students of Arabic as a foreign language. I’m English and I started learning Arabic in 2004. I worked as an Arabic linguist and Middle East researcher with the UK government and now I’m a freelance translator and part-time private tutor of Arabic.

Please be patient as I post things very sporadically. Sadly, I’m too busy to write blog posts as often as I’d like.

If you’d like to contribute your resources and ideas, I really welcome input from anyone in Arabic, English or any other language. Please email me at the address below. Please do subscribe to the blog and I welcome all comments and criticism. شكرا

    Ruth this looks fabulous, and we will reference it and refer to it specifically in the HEA report – please clarify for me what the A1 etc levels mean x

      Thanks, Alison! I will try to fill in the info about the international CEFR lang levels as soon as I can. There’s not much on the site yet but I hope to start adding my many bookmarked resources asap!
