Class Type: Meetup
Location: Varies, typically University District
This group is a way for those who are studying and have a foundation in Arabic to come and practice their speaking and listening skills in lively conversation. This means that the group would NOT be a good fit (gheir mulaa’im) for the following people:
- Those who have little to no prior knowledge of Arabic and would like to be taught the language. There are many excellent tutors and computer / app programs to help give you the basics in the language. Without this foundation, participation in the group would be very difficult.
- Those who are native speakers who do not have a genuine interest in and patience for helping non-native Arabic speakers improve their listening and speaking skills.
- Those who are native speakers of Arabic who are seeking to learn/practice English. There are several clubs and associations around the Seattle area for improving one’s English, yet unfortunately there are very few clubs like this which afford the opportunity to practice Arabic for free in a fun and social setting.
