Being an Arabic Fulbright FLTA, I am trying to make the most of this sharing-culture-opportunity. Thanks to Professor Stacey Philbrick Yadav, the Middle East Studies and Professor Alejandra Molina, the Intercultural Affairs, the HWS Arabic students went on a trip to an Arabic restaurant restaurant in Rochester. As we are approaching the end of the semester, the trip was an outlet and a wonderful goodbye event. It was an excellent opportunity to put the students’ Arabic in real practice, learn about the Arabic recipes and culture, try Arabic food, and have fun outside the classroom setting. — Malik Al Masoodi, Arabic Fulbright FLTA
