Jusuur Arabic Language Program Book 1: A meeting time (موعد)

In partnership with Georgetown University Press, QFI sponsored a series of Arabic language videos for educators and students to accompany its new “Jusuur Textbook”. The accompanying video series is an excellent classroom resource for teachers looking to integrate new linguistic and cultural activities in the classroom.

In this video, two friends agree on a meeting time and then meet, but a cultural misunderstanding takes place.

Suggested In-Classroom Activity:

Before watching the video, have your intermediate-level students create a voiceover for the video, narrating what they think is happening here as they watch the video on mute. Afterward, have them discuss the video, including the cultural misunderstanding.
