Among her pioneering works, Dr Marogy translated into Arabic what one prominent professor described as 'impossible to render in Arabic what is so quintessentially Belgian and Flemish". In her first academic work, she has drawn a comprehensive portrait of the Kitāb Sībawayhi (8th century C.E.), which is still considered the Quran of the Arabic grammar. She has also edited the first and second volumes in a series of studies on traditional Arab linguistic theories concentrating on Sībawayhi and his grammatical legacy.

I had intellectual and rejuvenating discussions with Amal about various topics.


She was always ready to help and support me by extending honest, practical and useful advice about every walk of life.

Amal's background meant her experience and manner helped the session to be insightful for me as I worked through a couple of challenges.


She encouraged me to consider different perspectives and come to my own solutions to commit to action. I would definitely work with Amal again.

I’ve done a 10h Arabic online course with Amal and learned a unique way to practice reading at my pace, time and needs.  

Thank you, Amal, to make it possible!
