Youth & Teen Classes - Arabic Language and Culture Workshop (Ages 4-8)
Culturingua will spark your child’s curiosity about the Arabic language and Arab culture in this weekend workshop. Younger students, ages 4-8, will learn how to speak about shapes and colors and then create geometric tessellation artwork. Older students, ages 9-14, will learn how to shop for clothing in a traditional souq or marketplace and then will wear traditional Arab clothing while having conversations with peers in Arabic. The two age groups will be held in separate classrooms and instruction is taught according to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages guidelines. A majority of the class is taught in Arabic immersion. No previous knowledge of Arabic is required.
