Arabic is hard but Dima is incredible, I would take any class with her. She's a bit intimidating but grades very generously, and cares a lot about students. The class is as fast-paced as one would except with languages here, but very good teaching and also very good community. There is nightly homework, but class only meets four times a week, and there's no drill at this level.

Prof. Ayoub is an incredibly warm and kind person. She's a fantastic beginning Arabic professor, and she cares deeply about each of her students. Our classroom environment was very engaging and I looked forward to class each afternoon. I feel incredibly lucky to have had such a joyful, though challenging, introduction to Arabic!

I hated this class Dima is unaccommodating and made half of my Arabic class drop. The test were hard no one got more than a 70 or 80 on a test. She expected more from us than what we were able to do. She also is very full of herself. By far one of the worst classes here at Middlebury
