Arabic Conversation Circles

Practice Arabic in a fun and conversational setting.

What are conversational circles?

Arabic Conversation Circles are a great way to practice different varieties of Arabic in a fun and conversational setting. They are designed to teach the language in culturally-focused themes, such as Arabic food, ordering food in a restaurant, shopping and bargaining in Arab souks, taking a cab, renting an apartment, going to the doctor, Arab storytelling, music, films, weddings, games, etc.

Circles are open to Arabic students from all levels, and students who attend five or more language circle sessions for a particular variety of Arabic will receive extra credit in their Arabic class.
