Welcome to the Rihla Arabic Academy
My name is Junaid Kajee. I’m the founder of the Rihla Arabic Academy.
As someone who’s been teaching Arabic for over a decade now, I’ve always been passionate about devising ways to make this beautiful language more accessible to those who don’t have the time or the capacity to devote a large chunk of time to studying the language.
When I started teaching Arabic online, all Rihla courses were taught live. This meant that course participants needed to be online at the exact time that I was teaching. Missing a lesson meant that participants would have to schedule a separate catch-up session. This proved tedious and eventually, I decided that all courses needed to be recorded.
When I started recording the course content I made sure that the lessons weren’t too fast-paced or flooded with technical jargon. I hate complicating things when a simpler method exists.
With measurable results being a hallmark of the work that Rihla does, I also needed to ensure that the notes, workbooks, audio summaries and video tutorials delivered at least 10X more value than any of the courses I taught live.
