I love Arabic!
I studied for two semesters in college/study abroad in Jordan, and I lived in Palestine for 8 months, so I have most experience with Levantine Amiya.
I want to meet other people around me that are interested in Arab language and culture, and practice my Arabic so I can go back to Palestine and communicate like a pro!
Through my boyfriend, who has lots of experience with meetup.com, but not much with Arabic culture or Palestine. shway, shway....
Hey Morgan! I got your message. I would highly recommend going to the one of the big libraries because they should have the Al Kitaab books. You can search for library books online if you go the Alameda Country library website. Also if you know someone at UC Berkeley, check their library. You can also get them used on Amazon or some other websites if you search for them. Or, you can post a message on the Yalla Arabi discussion board to see if anyone has these books so you can borrow them.
Great presentation today, quite informative about Akaba. Hope u show and present your slides to a wide audience.
Welcome Morgan. We are using THE DAILY UKULELE LEAP YEAR EDITION as our primary songbook in 2013. We are going from front to back and the pages are posted at the top of the homepage. We also play from song sheets which can be found under the "More" tab. We have all level of players and singing is encouraged. We hope to see you on a Sunday.
Ahlan wa sahlan Morgan! It was fun to meet you and your boyfriend at the film screening. Glad you can join the group and definitely look forward to seeing you again!
