I really appreciate Dima and her teaching style. She was a very kind but honest professor. She cares about personal relations with her students and created an exciting classroom environment. She is definitely intimidating which can be harmful but she will instill you with a good introductory background.

Professor Dima was amazing at teaching Arabic grammar. She went way beyond the textbook, breaking down grammar rules to show us their hidden depths. This approach greatly helped with my understanding and proficiency in Arabic grammar, laying a solid foundation for further learning. In terms of speaking, Professor Dima focuses more on Modern Standard Arabic rather than dialects.

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.
