Amrani, Adam_website

"The Arabic Flagship Program aided me in reaching a level of Arabic that I needed in order to conduct research for my academic and professional interests. By studying Modern Standard Arabic as well as several dialects, I was able to conduct field research in Algeria, translate source texts, and conduct professional research on geopolitics utilizing Arabic."
