  1. Great Post! The article is very interesting and it really captured my attention. I've always wanted to improve my Arabic so I decided to have a tutor via Skype at The tutor is great and I learned a lot from them but I want to further enhance my knowledge so I'm looking for another tutor and I hope I'll find the perfect one.
