Alan's story

I am a Dundee Muslim of Pakistani background. I am a very young 40+ man who enjoys gardening, pond keeping and most recently taken up cycling.

The delivery of the course and patience from our lecturer was very encouraging. I was impressed with the quality of education and the support that was available. In Al-Maktoum there is much encouragement for all to study and succeed.

Mumtaz Arabic Language

Tell us about your experience studying with Al-Maktoum College

I had always wanted to learn Arabic and started by taking evening classes in the Arabic Language and then progressed onto the first of 3 courses.

This course was participated via zoom during the pandemic. Although not face to face there was definitely some positives from online learning. The delivery of the course and patience from our lecturer was very encouraging. I was impressed with the quality of education and the support that was available. In Al-Maktoum there is much encouragement for all to pass.

What do you plan to do with your newfound Arabic Language skills?

As I am from Dundee I was fortunate that Al-Maktoum was local and known for its successes in courses.
