Arabic: A Language of Beauty and History
Patrick Bohnenkamp (Arabic 2015), a 2016 ADF recipient, used his funding to hold two community forums titled “Arabic: A Language of Beauty and History” at the Fort Madison Public Library in Fort Madison, Iowa. He wanted to provide an environment in which he could share his experiences with learning Arabic with his community as well as encourage dialogue. He provided Arab snacks and sweets along with keepsakes and souvenirs from Jordan. Approximately 55 people attended the two presentations, which were covered by the local newspaper and NPR station.
