Ahlan wa Sahlan أهلا وسهلا
From Director, Dr. Levi Thompson
Ahlan wa-sahlan and marHaba to the Arabic Flagship Program at UT Austin, yaa Shabaab!
It’s my pleasure to welcome you to join us in our mission to graduate global professionals with superior Arabic proficiency in just 5 years (and sometimes fewer!) of serious language study. On behalf of myself and the rest of the Arabic teaching faculty here at UT, I encourage any student interested in joining AFP to check out the resources available here on our website and to be in touch with either me (email@example.com) or Assistant Director Julia Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org) to answer any questions you may have about our program. We offer a number of pathways to superior, fully-professional Arabic language proficiency during your undergraduate studies, a skill that will set you up to not only succeed but thrive in a variety of governmental and non-governmental career paths. AFP also provides a significant amount of scholarship funding to students who demonstrate their commitment to serious Arabic language study during their time as undergraduates.
For current AFP Scholars, I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks for joining us and to remind you to reach out to us anytime to share about your experience in the program so far. We are here to support you throughout your undergraduate career and even after, and we look forward to helping you reach a superior level of Arabic before you leave UT. We are thrilled to have you with us now as you work toward your Capstone year in Meknes, Morocco, where our partners at the Arab American Language Institute in Morocco look forward to welcoming you in the future. Please be on the lookout for important e-mails from AFP regarding our yearly OPI testing, progress check-ins, and full calendar of events during the fall and spring semesters here at UT. I am likewise happy to introduce you to our 2023-2024 Graduate Assistant, Mr. Jens Inden, who is beginning his PhD studies in Arabic this fall at UT. Nawwarta, yaa Jens, and welcome to Austin.
