YALLA ARABI is a free EDUCATIONAL Arabic language and culture meetup group that serves the San Francisco and East Bay area.
NO ARABIC LANGUAGE EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED. Everyone is welcome! Ahlan Wa Sahlan!
We invite people from ALL backgrounds and ALL levels of Arabic experience to participate. We learn Arabic in fun, interactive and supportive ways by using collaborative activities and instructor-led exercises. We also watch Arabic films, eat at Arabic restaurants and attend Arab cultural events. We heartily welcome advanced and native Arabic speakers to assist us with the Arabic learning activities. If you are interested in volunteering or doing a language trade to improve your English while improving our Arabic, please post a comment on our Yalla Arabi Facebook wall or here on our meetup page.
Pens and notepads are encouraged! Our meetups take place in host homes and public venues. Take a look at our varied history of meetup events!
