هل تتكلم العربية؟ Do you speak Arabic? إذا كان نعم، ما هجةما هي اللهجة؟ If so, what dialect(s)؟ Do you know Standard Arabic (FuSHa?) Your answers will help us better offer suitable language workshops.

I can read and write using the traditional Arabic alphabet having been taught it as a child but have little understanding of the spoken language.

لقد قمت بزيارة الشرق الأوسط؟ Have you visited the Middle East? If so, where & in what capacity? Where else have you traveled outside the US? Do you speak any other languages besides English & Arabic? No, this info won't be shared with the FBI!

I have visited Egypt several times to meet relatives from all over the world on a family business matter and also to visit friends.

كيف وجدت هذه المجموعة؟ How did you find this group? What would you like to get from it? For example, do you prefer Middle Eastern Music events, Dinner Parties, Language Workshops, Live Theatre, or just getting together to meet new people & have fun?

I found this group by researching the internet as I am interested in practising spoken Arabic. I am also a belly dance student and love the Arabian culture.

هل لديك أي خبرة في العمل مع المؤسسات غير الربحية؟Do you have any experience working with Non-Profits? I ask because I'm considering establishing the club as a Non-Profit in the future.

I have worked in non-profits as a trainer and publicist.

· ما هو مجال عملك أو وظيفتك الحالية؟ ما هي وظيفة أحلامك؟ What is your current job, profession, or field? What is your dream job?

I am currently working in public relations for a government agency. My dream job is to travel and write and perform some community service in the process.

Introduction

I am a student of the Arabic language. I am of Arab descent (Hadramaut, Yemen) and have lived all my life in Singapore and New York and am very interested in reconnecting with my cultural heritage.
