Conversation Cafe and Speaking Appointments
The Conversation Café is a virtual room where conversation practice and speaking appointments take place. Minimal English is used in the Café. Activities are moderated by a TA/instructor.
The chief cause of lower-than-expected final grades for this course (which means one hasn’t acquired the Arabic skills this course is designed to impart, the skills you want) is lack of diligence (missed homework and quizzes, not to mention the failure to review vocabulary regularly). The underlying cause, more often than not, turns out to be the tendency to bite off more than one can handle (work, school, social life). It takes time to learn Arabic. Count the cost of building the tower before you start and plan accordingly.
