Jusuur Arabic Language Program Book 1: Yasmeen and Taghreed (ياسمين وتغريد)

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 young women meet for the first time and exchange names and places of origin.

Suggested In-Classroom Activity:

Have students create their own skit of meeting someone for the first time in which they exchange the following information:
- Greetings
- Names
- How they are
- Where they are from (city, state and country (if applicable)
- “Nice to meet you”
- Taking leave
