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

I have studied MSA for several years. I lived in Damascus for just under a year. I've spent three non-consecutive years in Egypt; however only studying Arabic during one of those years.

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

Arabic speaking. Would be great to do other things as well, but I mostly want to maintain the Arabic speaking skills I have since I won't be living in the region anymore and not sure how else to do that.

How did you find out about Yalla Arabi?

No answer yet


Ahlayn, Moving back to the States after a couple of years in the Middle East, and having several years of Arabic study. Looking to practice my Arabic--Classical or Egyptian or Shamy (hopefully the Shamy dialect will come back, as I miss it)!
