My experience in studying the Arabic language has been very positive. The Arabic language is one that is complicated and different from many languages. It is one language that is beginning to be in demand. Studying Arabic is a great opportunity for future careers. Professor Rima expects her students to be eager to learn the Arabic language. Rima is interested in each one of her students and their progress in her class. She pushed me to levels that I did not know that I could reach. I am so grateful that I took Arabic at William Jewell. I encourage students who are interested in Middle Eastern studies to consider taking Arabic.
