JUST one of the greatest teachers I've come across ever. This guy needs to be CLONED. The material is not easy, but when he teaches it you feel as though you've been missing out on something. And he actually cares about your grade...Take his class !!

This is a great class with considerable amount of work. I had his class right before a trip to the Middle East, & the class made my trip much better. The projects are so much fun. Attend each class and you will get an A. He will go out of his way to make sure that each student understands the content of the class. Great videos & group projects.

Ghassan is an amazing professor (one of the best at State) and a great guy in general. The language is tough but he is there to help, very reliable and understanding. Highly recommend if you have any interest at all in learning Arabic. He teaches 101 and 102 and will give you a solid foundation.

GREAT professor! Arabic is tough but the way he explains it makes it fairly easy. Go to class so you don't miss out on material, if you miss out it can be somewhat hard to catch up. I wouldn't hesitate to take another class with him.

Amazing teacher! My favorite so far. I had him for both Arab 101 and Arab 102. It is a tough language but he will be there to help you out. Definitely the easiest classes I've taken at state. I had no experience with the language before I took Arab 101 and i got A's in both classes. HIGHLY recommend to satisfy GE requirement. must attend class!

Ghassan is definitely one of the best teachers I ever had. Arabic is difficult and a great teacher is key. He gives you one-on-one attention for pronunciation and reviews, which really helps. He teachers both 101 and 102 at SDSU, so you will have him for a year. He will become a great friend as well as teacher. I will miss him greatly!

Ghassan is an awesome professor. Teaches both elemen levels so you'll have him for 1 year, which is awesome, b/c he's such a really great professor. Arabic is hard in general, but with Ghassan he teaches it clear and slows down if the class is struggling. Our section was rowdy, but he stuck w/ us. Thanks for the awesome academic year Ghassan!!!
