Please share what experience you have with Arabic language and/or culture.

4 months in Sana'a Yemen last year. Studied Arabic, and Egyptian Arabic several years. While in Yemen, was involved very much in culture: family gatherings, prayer, wedding, celebration of birth,(did learn language for Yoga, and taught to family.)

What would you like to gain from coming to "Yalla Arabi!" meetups?

To speak and understand Arabic, through practice. I can slowly read, write, and talk, but I'm not at all fluent, for all the studying I've done. Plus I'd like to meet people who love the language, and want a better world, like I do.

How did you find out about Yalla Arabi?
