By the end of the seminar, each participant will be able to read and write full pages in grammatically correct MSA, describing themselves and their hobbies, work, and studies. They will be able to express more complex actions in the past, present, and future using the imperative and different forms of the verb. Lessons will also include reading current news articles and short literary works.
