Ahmed and I spent the first 3 days freezing our toes off at night and making plans that as soon as we could we would get to the store to buy heaters. Ahmed went to the large grocery store called Fataallah (it is like a Wal-Mart), but ended up not having enough Egyptian pounds to buy the heater and the new SIM cards for our phones. He ended up buying the SIM cards and we finally got in contact with our family and friends on, Friday, December 28, 2012. The brother whose apartment we are staying in called the house phone in the apartment that evening and told us that the air conditioning unit in the living room was also a heater! Finally, some heat in the apartment!

So, I finished the beginning level of the Arabic program that I am taking and got my certificate.  My grade was not as high as it could have been, but I was glad to get through the class.  I have started on level 1 and I am feeling pretty confident about the class so far.  If I keep up with my homework and my studies I should make some good progress and hopefully get a better grade this go round.  I am really excited that I am keeping up with the program and I look forward to my understanding of Arabic to increase.

Well it looks like wordpress’ changes are not going to help me out one bit.  I can’t figure out how to upload a picture from my hard drive onto the site.  So I am not able to post a picture of my certificate of completion.  Hopefully I can figure it out.  If anyone wants to give me a few pointers that would be appreciated.

I received a comment on my post about my Arabic class and here is my response. 

We are studying from a curriculum developed by the instructor.  She is a trained teacher and has developed a very intense and structured class, al hamdulillah.  In this second book we cover body parts, question tools, masculine and feminine, pronouns, the house and items in the house, shopping in the market and food items, how to make words plural, specific and nonspecific words, modes of transportation and how to write stories.  She focuses not only reading but writing and comprehension.  There is really a lot going on in the class.  More than I can comment on.  There are vocabulary words after each lesson which often consists of reading a story that pertains to the lesson.   If you have a desire to learn Arabic she can teach you, inshaAllah.  We meet in a chat classroom on her website.  We send in our homework via scanner and email.  You can see her via web cam.  You will put in some work.  There are exams and midterms and pop quizzes.  I enjoy the class very much and I am getting a lot out of it.  Her focus is on Fusa and not the dialects that you hear around you in the masjid, but once you have mastered the Fusa it will be easier to transition to modern standard Arabic inshaAllah. 

For the sister who left me the nice comment if you have any more specific questions I will answer them for you.   I apologize it took so long to get back to you but I have been a busy lady these days. 

So, I am back in my Arabic class and I am feeling good about it.  I miss my former classmates, but my new classmate seems very nice.  I am in a program called Golden Arabic Pieces and I am retaking the second book.  I think the review will be good for me and God willing I won’t have to take another break and can just continue with the program.  I am taking steps to get more Arabic in my daily routine and to use my vocabulary words with my husband so that I can retain what I am learning.  The goal of course is to learn Arabic so that I will be able to increase my Islamic knowledge and my study of the Quran.

 I would like to work on my Spanish as well but there are only so many hours in the day.

Yunus 10:18

And they worship besides Allâh things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allâh." Say: "Do you inform Allâh of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!
