Arabic 1 Course Newsletter 2

Ahlan Was Sahlan- أهلاً و سهلاً _Culture Cafe Details

Your kids/students ROCK!

I am so thrilled to work with you kids and so grateful that you shared them with me this semester. They are amazing learners and serious students about their education, which is very refreshing to see. This is clearly apparent just by challenging themselves at an early age to take such a CRITICAL language like Arabic.

Join us Thursday, September 28 at 8:30-9:30pm for our 1st Arabic Culture Cafe!

What is Culture Cafe?

Culture Café is a unique experience to NCVPS that allows students from all sections, levels and languages to come together in a live, online classroom and learn about a wide variety of cultural aspects from the different countries represented by the languages taught at NCVPS. Students are welcome to attend any scheduled session. Extra credit is currently offered to students that attend live Culture Café sessions.
