Most of my experience here at Mason has been outstanding however, as of late, I have come up with a few complaints. The Arabic program at this school is garbage. the teachers do not help the beginning students at all. the class is tailored to the students who are already natives and it drives me crazy. Last week my professor accused me of not doing my work because I had no idea what was going on in class. However, I do my work. I literally spend 10 hours a week trying to comprehend everything we do but it is not sufficient. All the staff of the arabic program are adjunct professors so they are never here and they never respond to their emails. I wish the university would hire professors who are not Arab natives for the low level classes so they could commiserate with the students and think of alternative ways of teaching. Native speakers do not understand why someone would not get their language because they speak it.. their arrogant and sanctimonious attitudes bother me greatly.
