So I have successfully completed, Level 1, of the Arabic class at the TIES Center. Yeyyy for me 🙂 and I have also made some awesome friends during these past couple of weeks.
I have to admit that initially, I was pretty concerned, that the course might not be what I was hoping for BUT as it turns out, it was exactly what I was looking for! Our teacher was well read and made the class interesting by keeping every one involved, during the lectures.
Some of the students were not satisfied with the course and I’m guessing that’s because they were more interested in learning conversation in Arabic. The Level 1 dealt with concentrating on reading and understanding the Alphabets, since that is how you usually start learning a language. We did learn the basic greetings and a few other conversational words and sentences.
Fortunately, for all of us the center is offering more classes beginning this September! For those who wish to learn conversing in the language, there is a separate class. Some other classes are:
Arabic Level 1,2,3,4
I do recommend the courses, especially if you’re staying in Kuwait and wish to learn the language.
See you there!
