Now that I have made my mind up and I will be staying here a little longer I have decided that I am going to take Arabic lessons. My students said they would be more than happy to teach me but I think that they can give me phrases and I will also get a private teacher (or see if I can take it on campus in the fall). Pretty excited about this. I hope to be fluent one day! My students keep telling me that is it really easy and that I will learn fast... I hope so!
