What the Arabic Academy learned today:

It is the start of week two at SMC, and the weather is heating up. Students have been doing some more indoor activities to stay out of the heat wave. Over the weekend, we had a field trip to downtown Burlington where students were able to check out the Burlington Farmers Market, try new foods, and look at the beautiful lake. We also watched a World Cup match in Arabic, had a tea party, held our first dance, and learned to sing “Lamma Bada Yatathanna”.

Students have been growing closer together and getting more comfortable speaking in Arabic. Last night, teachers evaluated students and told them what they needed to work on.

We are excited to start week two at SMC!

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