Happy new year! Hopefully one of your resolutions is to spend more time speaking Arabic – with us, of course ;)
We've decided to try something new geared at our intermediate and above speakers. Each week for the first hour (6-7) we'll be focusing on an item such as a newspaper article, short story, video clip, song, etc. in order to incorporate reading, vocabulary building and guided discussion into our weekly sessions.
We'll spend some time reading and/or reviewing the item, followed by a loosely guided discussion. We are open to suggestions for topics that will interest our learners as well as our native speakers – please send me a message with your ideas!
This first hour is open to everyone, however the pace will move with the expectation that those who attend have a basic reading level and some basic vocabulary and grammar so that we can discuss the materials.
Our regular open conversation practice and games will begin at 7:00.
If you are a beginner who is interested in a study hour geared towards your level, let me know.
