The “Leer Arabisch/Master Arabic” school was founded by a Lebanese resident of Amsterdam: Nayla Chebli.

Background: Nayla was born and raised in Lebanon until she was 17 years old. In Lebanon she studied at an international school where she obtained her Baccalaureat I and II in Arabic Literature. After that she immigrated with her family to Canada, where she completed her university degree at McGill university in Montreal, Quebec. At McGill she discovered her love for teaching while tutoring students in Information Technology as a Teacher Assistant. After she completed her studies she worked for 8 years as an Account Manager and trainer in IT and Business Management to companies in Canada, the U.S., France and Belgium. During her working years in Canada Nayla met her Dutch husband, and moved with him to Amsterdam. She has been living in Amsterdam since 1999.

Why learn Arabic with us?

The teacher: her mother tongue being Arabic/Lebanese, combined with her natural talent in languages (she is fluent in spoken and written Arabic, English, French and Dutch) and her deep understanding and appreciation of the arabic culture and different dialects, allows Nayla to be a natural choice for people interested in learning the Arabic language. Moreover, Nayla has at least 15 years of experience in teaching and training adults and companies.
