Advanced Arabic

It’s hard to believe its been almost a year since I registered for an Advanced Arabic course.  My original intention was to improve my communication skills with the many friends I made over the course of my research on the local foods of the Galilee. I wish I could say that I retained even half of all that I learned over those very intense fourth months.  One of the unanticipated outcomes of the program, however, was the inspiration to write about the process. Happily, Naamat Women Magazine decided to publish that piece, which I share with you here, fresh from the latest summer issue.
