An introduction to Hassan Eddahabi

I am Hassan Eddahabi, an experienced Arabic language teacher with a Ph.D. in Arabic applied linguistics. With 16 years of teaching experience, my focus has been on instructing Arabic to non-native and heritage speakers. I have worked with diverse students from various backgrounds and cultures, refining my instructional design and research skills during my time at the City University of New York (CUNY) from 2015 to 2020. Immersed in different linguistic environments, I have tailored my teaching methodologies to meet the needs of diverse learners.

Currently based in the Hague, Netherlands, I teach Arabic at the Academic Language Centre (ATC) within the Faculty of Humanities at Leiden University. It brings me great joy to connect with individuals who share a passion for learning Arabic. My teaching approach stands out for its uniqueness and my unwavering commitment to empowering students to become confident and fluent Arabic speakers.
