About meMy name is Alhasan Diab, I'm from Damascus, Syria, and I've been living here since I was born. Even though my occupation is dentistry, I've always wanted to work in the Computer and Tech field. There is a lot of personal stuff to talk about, but briefly, I'm an open-minded, unsatisfied, ambitious, and intellectual guy. I speak Arabic as it's my mother tongue, and I speak English fluently. I also have average skills in German, in which I got a B1 certificate from Goethe-Institute. My favourite kind of music is Opera, Classical, Jazz, Country, and Rock. Unfortunately, the only country I've visited is Lebanon. Regarding my education, I studied Dentistry at Damascus University and graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor's Degree in Dentistry. I wouldn't consider myself an introvert, however, I have foreign friends online more than the ones in real life. I have always been into learning more about other cultures, languages, and countries. To be honest, teaching Arabic isn't my major, and as earlier stated, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Dentistry. I don't have a professional degree or license in teaching Arabic as a foreign language. However, firstly, I'm an educated native Arabic speaker, and I have been teaching Arabic as my 2nd job (MSA + Levantine) to foreigners for more than two years on other platforms. Today, I have great experience in helping foreigners speak this language and overcome their difficulties in Arabic. I have given numerous lessons to more than 50 students from all over the world (US, UK, Europe, South Africa, South Korea, Brazil and China). Secondly, as native speakers from Syria, we study Modern Standard Arabic from the age of 4. We study it in reception, primary, middle, high school, and even in tertiary education. Also, Syrian universities are the only universities in the world that teach Medicine or Dentistry in Arabic. In other words, we speak in our dialect, which is Levantine, and it's the clearest and closest Arabic dialect to Fusha. Plus, unlike other Arabic countries, where they study in English or French, we study MSA our entire lives. What makes it easy for me to communicate with people from all over the globe is that I speak English fluently. I have been learning, speaking, and using English since I was a very little child, and I would consider myself an upper-advanced English speaker. I got a band of 7.5 out of 9 in IELTS. I also speak German, however, I don't speak it fluently in which I could say I'm an intermediate German speaker with B1 Certificate from Goethe-Institute. Moreover, I have a decent experience in translation from English to Arabic and vice versa which I gained while working as a freelance language service provider (Translation, Transcription, Subtitling, MT Post-editing) on several freelancing platforms. That improved my writing skills in both English and Arabic dramatically. I created my own social media pages where I post useful and professional charts, graphics, and posts that will help foreign students to improve their Arabic for free. Also, I started my Arabic podcast (MSA & Levantine) where my students can improve their listening and comprehension skills in Arabic, and also improve their pronunciation, fluency, grammar and enrich their vocabulary. My students will also learn useful phrases, expressions and idioms in both (MSA & Levantine). I'm planning to begin uploading educational videos on Youtube and very soon and promote this amazing platform on my channel. Note: I didn't mention any of my social media, podcast, or my teaching profiles on other platforms, so I don't violate your terms of service. However, I would be glad to provide more details if I'm required to do so. I believe teaching the language ought to be flexible in that every person is learning the language for different personal reasons. That's why I want to help the learners to achieve what they are seeking in Arabic. So, I focus on these points in my teaching methodology: - Improve speaking/conversation skills (beginners, intermediates, advanced): The huge majority of my students want to learn how to speak in the Levantine dialect. So I help them to learn useful and essential grammar and rules, then we dive into real and practical conversations. For example, topics like Shopping, hobbies, asking for directions, how to introduce themselves, job phrases, how to have small talk, talking about food, cultures, news and so on. - Improve Listening and comprehension capabilities in Modern Standard Arabic, and Levantine by speaking with them and having real conversations with them and sending them voice records outside the class. - Enhance writing skills. Many of my students are learning Arabic because they want to write articles, reports, manuscripts, or even they want to create their blogs in Arabic. So I help them to express their ideas in Arabic and correct their grammatical mistakes and teach them the writing style in Arabic. - Give grammar lessons and correct grammatical mistakes - Enrich the vocabulary, provide synonyms and so on - Give a myriad of useful Arabic phrases, terms, words, questions, answers, idioms, etc. Plus, I give assignments, and I correct them in my free time (outside the class). During the class (and outside the class), I'll provide useful and graphically-appealing design materials such as PDF files, Flash Cards, Images, Graphs, Charts, Tables, and most importantly, audio files (voice records).
