"Salam. My company regularly sent me to the Middle-East and Northern Africa and I always felt uncomfortable depending on my translator for everything. I could never keep up with any classes since I spend 6-8 month a year traveling. [Live Lingua Arabic] has been a godsend. I would recommend Live Lingua to anybody who is in my situation, or somebody who simply wants to learn Arabic from great native speaking teachers." Jimmie M.
