Algarabía Language Co-op is offering new *virtual* Arabic courses at The People’s Forum to those who are interested in topics of social justice, cinema, media, and culture. Through weekly social justice themes, and using a communicative and popular education approach, participants will improve their Arabic skills, and critically engage with various Arabic cultural productions, including films, TV series, newsreels, and short stories. These courses are designed for folks at different levels of fluency in their productive (speaking, writing) and receptive (listening and reading) skills. Special focus will be given to learning vocabulary and community organizing terminology relevant to contemporary social movements in the U.S. and the Arab world.
For more information about our language services, go to www.algarabialanguage.com

Selected participants will be contacted by the instructor on a rolling basis and up until a week before class starts. Late applications will be considered if spots are available. If you have any questions, you can write to us at algarabialanguage@gmail.com
