The Afro-Middle East Centre invites women to register for an eight-day introductory Arabic language course. This intensive course aims to provide a solid foundation in the Arabic language, with a focus on conversation and reading. Women of all ages are welcome to apply to attend the course, which hopes to provide a comfortable and somewhat-informal learning environment. Course participants will also be invited to attend an Arabic Expo on Saturday, 4th July, where Arabic teachers and students will interact.
The course will be conducted by Amina Ebrahim. Amina studied Arabic at the University of Damascus and the Sheikh Ahmed Kuftaro Institute, both in Syria. She completed her Level V Arabic studies, and also obtained her ijaza in the recitation of the Qur'an.
Attendance at the course will set you back R200, which includes the cost of all material and refreshments. Women that are unable to afford the registration fee are welcome to apply for a bursary. If you are intererested in attending, please contact the course organisers before the 26th June 2009.
For more information, or to register, contact Amina (amina.ebrahim at gmail.com / 072 548 3416) or Melissa (info at amec.org.za / 073 906 0017).
