First of all, LOOK AT THIS FOOD!! <3 and the pretty program!
I have never tasted food like this, and although I was a little hesitant, I must say I was pleasantly surprised! I tried (I think it is called this) pita bread, and oh my goodness my life is changed! It was so good! Definitely a great start to a fun night!
Also, I had the opportunity to watch one of my friends perform in one of the videos! Everyone spoke so well, it was amazing! I have always been told that Arabic is one of the hardest language, and that if you truly want to learn it, you have to put in hours upon hours of time. I could definitely tell these students had practiced and were on to big things!
My favorite video was the one over The Oscars! Although I do not understand Arabic, I could still kind of get the gist of what was happening. Everyone acted so well, and it was truly funny! It was a great event to just wind down the week!
Also, I really enjoyed watching the belly dancers! They danced really well, and I could see that they had been practicing for a while. As their beautiful skirts twirled, they looked so graceful and happy.
This talent show really made me consider expanding my knowledge of Arabic and Culture. The people who attended the program were all very welcoming, and encouraging. I’ve always heard that Arabic is one of the most difficult languages to learn, and although it does seem difficult, it seems as though there is a lot of support and encouragement from not only the university, but also other staff members and students. It was a great time, and I am truly happy that I was able to attend!
