What the Arabic Academy learned today:

Week one is coming to a close for the Arabic Academy and we are learning so much. Today, Tegwa had her group of students put on a skit that they collaborated on. Another class held a traditional wedding with decorations, dates, and other snacks to celebrate. Last night, students watched the film, Captain Abo Ra'id.

Classes have been learning to conjugate, how to better pronounce words, and about the alphabet through songs.

We are looking forward to the weekend fieldtrip to downtown Burlington tomorrow and the DJ dance and ice cream party this evening! 

Check back on Monday to read more about the Arabic Academy!
