What do Arabic students do in the summer?

مرحبا يا طلاب اللغة العربية!

I hope your summer is going well.  If you would like to review your Arabic a little over the summer and get some early extra credit for next year, send me something about yourself in Arabic and I’ll post it here.

Extra credit options:

1) Email me a picture of something from your summer with at least three sentences describing what’s going in this picture. Where are you? What are you up to? Who are you with? What are you eating? What are you wearing? The picture doesn’t necessarily have to have you in it–it could just be of somewhere you went in the summer, either inside or outside of Portland.

2) Make a video of yourself talking about something you’re doing in the summer and email it to me. You don’t have to show your face in the video–I know some people feel shy about that. Instead, you could just film the place you are or the activity you’re doing. The video should be at least 30 seconds long.

3) Watch someone else’s video or read what they’ve written and respond in a comment of at least three sentences.

If you are having trouble typing in Arabic on your computer, considering using Yamli to help you write (on Yamli, you can type something in English letters, then select the word you want as it appears in Arabic letters).

UPDATE: As it stands, your entries will appear on the main page of the blog. I said in class that I would just put your posts on the “What do Arabic Students Do in the Summer” page, but it seems that I can’t make that happen right now. I am working on making them appear in both places.
