TO APPLY, PLEASE FILL OUT THIS REGISTRATION FORM: https://forms.gle/kwAWsC7E8CXbLTG59
Algarabía Language Co-op is offering new Arabic courses at The People’s Forum to those who are interested in learning Arabic with a focus on 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 cultural productions in Arabic, 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.
Selected participants will be contacted by our instructors on a rolling basis and until a week before classes start. Late applications will be considered if spots are made available. If you have any questions, you can write to us at email@example.com

At Algarabía Language Co-op, we see language learning as a meaningful, collaborative and transformative process reflected in our training in hands-on communicative and task-based language teaching approaches and our use of popular education in the language classroom. We seek to support the holistic development of all language learners as they become competent multilingual speakers. We devise classroom activities and use textbooks and other original didactic materials that meet our participants’ needs and that represent the linguistic and racial/ethnic diversity of the Spanish- and Arabic-speaking worlds.
