Meeting Description:

Georgetown University presents an 'Arabic for Communication' workshop by
Dr. Mahmoud Al-Batal, Emory University
Dr. Amin Bonnah, Georgetown University
Dr. Kristen Brustad, Emory University
Dr. Karin Ryding, Georgetown University
Dr. Kassem Wahba, Georgetown University, as Moderator.

The aim of this workshop is to promote communicative language techniques that
will help Arabic teachers establish a working competence for learners of Arabic.
It will provide effective communicative language teaching and learning methods
in terms of knowledge, skills and techniques.

The workshop team will prepare and distribute handouts and materials in addition
to their presentations. At the end of the workshop, discussion will be held
where teachers can comment, present questions and share advice on different
methods and issues which enhance the communicative skills of their students.

Arabic teachers of all levels and graduate students with a professional interest
in teaching Arabic - not only from Georgetown but other regional universities
and programs - are encouraged to attend.

Except for the first presentation, Arabic will be the language of the workshop.
It is an opportunity for professionals in the field to meet, network, enhance
and augment their skills with the latest techniques and materials from experts
in the field.
