On 19/06, we launched the ALCASA Arabic Cultural Workshops with a special session presented by the talented South Australian musician and teacher Charlie Yarak. About 34 participants attended the music workshop. A number of families came earlier to the Arabic Story Reading time with the ALCASA’s Children’s Group and more than 12 adults stayed after the workshop for the Language Exchange session.

We have received this testimonial that we would love to share with you:

The music workshop was a highlight for us, where the talented presenter, showed and explained a range of Arabic instruments and demonstrated how they are used in Arabic music and culture. He completed his presentation with an entertaining performance that left us wanting to hear more. The group were very friendly and as beginner Arabic Language learners we felt very supported in our learning during the Language Exchange session. We worked around activities that were appropriate to our language ability level. The afternoon was enlightening and enjoyable.”
