Yalla! Uncle Saleh's Arabic Conversation & Reading Series CONTINUES.....

  • Jul 27, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Arabic language learning continues with this series by Uncle Saleh!!

 

Saleh has formally taught both Arabic and English courses. He has a deep grammatical understanding of both Arabic Fus-hah and Levantine Amiyah, so come with questions.


It's always a fun time and a great learning experience with Saleh! All levels are welcome.

We speak, we write (if we are ready for that) and we always LAUGH! We may form smaller groups to accommodate different levels of Arabic learners.

 

NO BOOK IS NEEDED. Uncle Saleh prepares a different handout for each session. It includes Arabic text, English translation and also the transliterated Arabic to English so you can read along in Arabic while reading English text. Empowering!

    Great group--it was a pleasure meeting all of you and hearing about your diverse Arabic backgrounds. I have a ways to go before I can converse at your level, but I'll definitely be back to practice with you all again. Shukran lekum!

      Thanks for coming Salam. Your input was very helpful. Look forward to you helping to lead an occasional meetup for us. Either poetry or song translation would be wonderful! Or if you have a different idea that would be fine too..Yalla Salam! Shukran.

    This will be my first meetup with Yalla Arabi! I really do not know any Arabic, is that okay? Or do I need to know some phrases?

    July 18, 2013

    • Maryam

      I am really sorry I missed this, I was really looking forward to learning some Arabic! Will there be another language meet up like this? I didn't see it on the upcoming meetups.

      The Uncle Saleh meetups happen about once a month. The next one isn't posted yet but stay tuned to the calendar. We're also hoping to very soon start a monthly conversation group. Uncle Saleh's lesson does have some conversation, but it's mostly reading and listening.

    Mark, Vanessa,Lesley,Maryam....sorry we missed you at this event..Maybe next time.

    July 28, 2013

  • Vanessa

    So sorry--yet again I've planned to come and won't make it...transportation to the E. Bay has been a bit challenging, and I'm disappointed to miss these meetings...have a wonderful class, everyone.

      no worries....Au Coquelet is just a few blocks from the Downtown Berkeley Bart station..

    hi everyone - Faiza and I are trying to organize an Arabic conversation gathering once a month with all the people from Uncle Saleh's class. If you are interested please let us know. Also, if you are a more advanced Arabic speaker and can help facilitate that would also be wonderful. In addition we are also looking for Arabic speakers who are fluent and may want to improve their English in order to converse in both languages during the meeting. We are open to suggestions. Please leave a note on Yalla Arabi if you are interested, and let you know how to contact you. Thanks

    • Faiza

      Thanks for posting the note Laurie!

      David and Sarah, it would be wonderful to have your input. We are often a co-taught group when Uncle Saleh isn't leading an event.

      Our Arabic fluent member Amr is interesting in leading some conversations with us. We will also help him to practice his English. We are trying to pin a date down for an August meeting.

      Any other fluent Arabic speakers out there that would like to help?

      July 27, 2013

    • Faiza

      Please email me or post to the group if you are interested in helping lead some Arabic conversation meetups. Alf Shukr!
