Dubai: A Lebanese expatriate in Dubai is teaching Arabic in quite a different way.
Juliana Khalil, a lifestyle-coaching consultant in Dubai, uses mind-mapping technique to teach Arabic.
Khalil, a Tony Buzan licensed instructor in mind mapping and MBraining Coach, helps individuals and corporates understand their mission and achieve their vision through mind mapping. “Arabic requires constant practise to be able to talk in the language. Many people are visual learners. Mind mapping therefore allows one to achieve their goals,” she said.
Her training incorporates Tony Buzan’s graphic technique to unlock the mind’s full potential. For the record, Tony Buzan is an English author and educational consultant. He is known for popularising mental literacy, radiant thinking, and mind mapping. He discovered how to use brain science to dramatically improve learning, creativity, understanding, and memory in everyone regardless of age or starting point.
