Welcome to the Arabic Language Discussion Forum

Being a retired professor of Arabic and Linguistics, I have elected to publish an archive on how the Arabic language is used in America and across cultures.

I hope to establish a dialogue with people interested in the language, the teaching of the language, the learning of the language, and the interaction of Arabic and English while learning the language.

I am also interested in having a discussion as to the use of Arabic within the contexts of globalization.

Arabic is very much a language that binds a culture and defines a people. This blog is dedicated to understanding how American use, learn, and teach the Arabic language, and how Arabic, in Arab countries has been impacted crossculturally.

On November 1 and 2nd, Dr. Camelia Suleiman organized a Global Perspectives Symposium at Michigan State University
The symposium’s title was “Blurring Boundaries: Arabic Identities Across the Mediterranean and Beyond.
Participants were from the USA, France, Morocco and Palestine.
The topics were quite diverse and dealt with the following topics:
Arabic in the Media, The Arabic Legacy in Italy, Visualizing Arabic, and Challenges of Pedagogy and Translation.
The presentations were followed by a very interesting discussion regarding the teaching of Arabic in general.
