Jusuur Arabic Language Program Book 1: Nadine and Ashraf’s daily schedule, MSA (برنامج نادين وأشرف، الفصحى) (with images)

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 siblings discuss their daily schedule and the places they frequent in Modern Standard Arabic.

Suggested In-Classroom Activity:

As students listen, have them write when the following takes place:

Nadine goes to the university.
Nadine goes to a restaurant at the mall.
Ashraf goes to the club to play soccer.
Ashraf goes to the cinema.
Ashraf and Nadine are home.

Vocabulary in focus: places, daily schedule, hobbies
