I studied advanced Arabic under Dr. Aquil at Georgia Tech. Her approach to teaching the language was very effective - we routinely discussed issues in the Arab world in Arabic, expanding our vocabulary and professional capacity with the language. She is kind and patient, and always goes out of her way to help her students do better. Her native fluency in Hejazi and Cairene dialects allows for a tailored learning experience for students. I highly recommend her!Nov 5, 2018Arabic Language and Culture's reply

Dr. Aquil is an absolutely fabulous instructor. I had the pleasure of taking courses in both Arabic language and culture with her at Georgia Tech, and cannot stress what an incredible academic experience I had. She is extremely knowledgeable, passionate about the subject matter, patient and kind. She made learning Arabic accessible and possible to learn for someone with no previous exposure and has encouraged an intellectual curiosity in the field that has stuck with me for years.Oct 2, 2018
Learning Arabic with Dr. Aquil was a major highlight of my undergraduate experience. Dr. Aquil was/is one of my favorite people. Fun, smart, caring, and interested in her student’s success. After so many years, we’re still friends :)Aug 29, 2018
