Language Learning Groups مغامرات

Published: August 10, 2009

In the two-week program, villagers have two language learning groups per day, or "adventures" as we say in Arabic. Villagers are grouped in similar language levels and spend the first session playing games, doing activities, and running around while practicing listening and speaking in Arabic. For example, to learn colors we might play Twister, challenge each other to games of Uno, or play "The Noodle Game". Every day brings new vocabulary and new games. In the second language group, villagers practice reading and writing. For the elementary group, this may entail learning the alphabet and practicing writing their Arabic names, while in other levels we may write short stories, read picture books, or talk about grammar.
