Learning Arabic in Palestine

On Monday Febuary 2nd Excellence Center teacher Duaa Kassam gave another in a series of Arabic lessons to Canadian instructor Muhammad Davies who is participating in the Teach English, Speak Arabic in Palestine Program. These lessons focus on the Palestinian dialect and are of particular interest to Davies.

Davies in only a beginner student, but he is making excellence progress under the tutelage of instructor Ms. Kassam, and has now moved past the alphabet onto reading full sentences. This lesson is just one of the many examples of the Excellence Center’s commitment to fostering international dialogue and cultural exchange.Davies 2
