Yalla! Uncle Saleh's Arabic Conversation & Reading Series
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 sometimes the transliterated Arabic to English so you can read along in Arabic while reading English text. Empowering! http://www.meetup.com/yallaarabi/events/51349822/ See above link that describes a typical Uncle Saleh/Yalla Arabi event! We almost always find a table at the back of the restaurant (not the front cafe) on the left. Learn about Uncle Saleh from this article written by Yalla Arabi member Laurie Winestock: https://jewishcurrents.org/editor/sumayl-tel-avivs-shadow-village/

    What we're about

    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!
