A Routledge Language announcement
Author of the Month: Leila Samy
Leila Samy, co-author of Basic Arabic, is May's Author of the Month! Leila Samy, MPH, directs a Federal Government program to help under served (e.g., poor and rural) communities across the Unites States (US) leverage technology to improve health care quality and fuel economic development.
In a new interview, Ms. Samy opened up about what makes the Arabic language so special, completing Basic Arabic after the passing of her father and co-author Waheed Samy, what sets this grammar apart from others, and more. Read the entire interview here.
"If we want to properly interpret and engage in issues concerning geopolitics and the Middle East or successfully negotiate compelling deals with certain emerging markets, we should collectively learn more Arabic. By learning Arabic, we can understand Arab media, listen to “both sides” of a conversation, have a more effective dialog, reach a wider audience and ultimately make smarter decisions."
