Lebanese people are proud to speak several languages; among them are Arabic, French and English. Many students come to Hamra and hear English spoken at cafes and assume that English is the primary language. However, they don’t realize that within a ten minute walk from Hamra there are areas where English is not used. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Stop by our free Conversation Class each Tuesday
- Find a conversation partner who wants to learn your language. Go to coffee and for 30 minutes only speak in Arabic and then switch.
- Go down to the Cornish. It’s about a 10 minute walk from ALPS and there is a variety of people there day and night who prefer to speak in Arabic.
