MECo: The Arabic Language Café
15/10/2018 @ 17:00 - 18:30
The Middle East Committee proudly presents the first Middle East Language Café, open to all students of Leiden University learning a Middle Eastern language and interested in exchanging either Dutch or English.
In this one-hour interactive language exchange session, we aim to address the gap of contact between students learning Arabic and (Dutch or English-learning) refugees and native speakers in The Hague.
There are many programs focused on students aiding the integration of refugees, but not many that focus on the linguistic aspect and maximise on the potential valuable cultural exchange that could come forth from interaction between people interested in the region and people from the region. We hope to hereby create a platform where this can take place.
Spread the word, come practice your Arabic presentation, ask questions regarding coursework and seize the opportunity to practice!
Feel free to contact us at email@example.com about any questions, suggestions or concerns you may have and see you on the 15th.
