This August (2013) I started my third semester of Modern Standard Arabic at UTA and I am retooling the meetup to a more academic setting - I need lots of review and practice. As such, the weekly meetups will be focused on content from the books "Arabic for Life" and "Al-Kitaab", plus a few others.
The first part of the meetup will focus on vocabulary, phrases, grammar, and reading material from the textbooks. The second part will be unstructured, ad-hoc conversation practice.
In this meetup, we will review:
• The definite article.
• The "nisba" adjective.
Come, let's learn together :)
