Jusuur Arabic Language Program Book 1: A new friend (صاحبة جديدة)

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 their relative to a friend.

Suggested In-Classroom Activity:

After discussing the video, have students create skits in which they introduce a friend to someone else. Have them exchange information like places of origin for themselves and their family.

Vocabulary in focus: greetings, meeting for first time, origin/من أصل
