Learn English


Arabic is the national language and most Arabs don't speak English very well. The Government too works in Arabic. Many offer English learning classes to Arabs and people of all communities who want to learn English.

Hi Web-oj. Thanks for the post today. I find the mid-eastern culture facinating and your blog provides a window into what life is like there. Thanks for doing this.

Is there much of a demand for english speaking Kuwaities? In other words, what is the advantage or motivation for them to learn english?

By the way you have to keep using the 5700 almost everyday, switch on and switch it off. This model develops CCD problems if kept unused for long

Interesting to know. I see that someone has written the words "Indian" and "Muslim lady" in pen next to the printed word "teacher".

I am curious to know if male Kuwaitis are open to learning from women teachers. My guess would be that they are since Kuwait is more open and liberated than its neighbors. A man originally from Palestine (Jordan) enrolled for an English class in a US college and when he found that the teacher is a woman, he refused to learn English from her and dropped out. I know every culture has its own ideas and beliefs, but personally I think women are the best teachers, especially for languages. Afterall, our first teacher is our mother.

Hmmm. After submitting my comment above, I reread the ad. It says "Good news for Arabic students".
Should it be "Arab students"?
"Arabic students" gives me the impression that the student is studying Arabic, although one of the meanings of the word "Arabic" is "Arab". I tend to associate "Arab" with people and culture and "Arabic" with the language. (And "Arabian" with "Arabian Nights" ;-) ;-P )
