مرحبا

Welcome to Arabic 2019-2020

It is my pleasure to see all of my students and welcome our new students to our Arabic class. I will be more than delighted to teach you and increase the amount of Arabic language and culture during this year. We will be learning more Arabic topics in a fun way to enjoy every moment in the classroom as well as loving to work on it at home. Students are encouraged to teach their parents/guardians about what we do in class for the sake of practice and engaging their family members in the learning process.
