The Arabic House is dedicated to practicing Modern Standard Arabic outside of the classroom setting. The group Tuesdays and Thursday from 7-8 for an hour of conversation practice, snacks, and mint tea. Conversations are both casual and group-led. Members are encouraged to bring any questions about their homework from class or about the Arabic language in general. Most activities are held in the Greenhouse of the Class of 1925 building located at 3941 Irving Street. Additional cultural activities may take place in Gregory, elsewhere at Penn or throughout Philadelphia. All students and Arabic enthusiasts, whether graduate or undergraduate, first-semester beginners or native speakers, are welcome to attend.  Dedicated undergraduate students may choose to enroll for credit (Arabic 180).  Please contact Arabic House program director Adam Bitar at abitar@seas.upenn.edu for details.
