I am gleefully taking Arabic I this semester. Because I am having so much fun taking it, I was thinking about attending/forming an informal Arabic chat group. Thankfully, I found one! If I end up going, I will post a review here. Anyone know of any others?
I initially signed up for Arabic because I wanted to have a working understanding of the language before traveling to CMU-Qatar next semester. Now I love the cognitive dissonance of writing right to left, the smooth cursive of the letters, and the experience of learning a language so different than anything I know. It is so cool!
