Jusuur Arabic Language Program Book 1: My friend is of Arab origin (صاحبتي من أصل عربي)

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, someone introduces her relative to a friend.

Suggested In-Classroom Activity:

Vocabulary in focus: greetings, introductions, telephone numbers, origin

Use this video as an assessment at the end of a unit on greetings, basic introductions and exchanging telephone numbers by creating some questions for students to demonstrate their understanding.
