Since 1999, Dr Selim has been teaching Arabic to native and non-native speakers and lectures in Arabic studies at Trinity College.

Dr Selim also taught the International Arabic Baccalaureate for several years and many his students received student’s awards at UCD. He taught Arabic for a number of Irish politicians e.g. John Gormley; Secretary of the Green Party, and Irish Diplomats such as Patrick Sammon; First Secretary. Some of his writings have been published by Cambridge Scholar press and currently he is preparing his book “Arabic for Leaving Certificate”.

With Ali Selim we finished a one year course in just over six months and it was exam questions from there. Ali simplifies things in such a way that you get the most done in the least amount of time
