Arabic Study Group 2

Ahlan wa sahlan everyone,

I have a few electronic resources for you relating to this week's session.

1. New and (I think) better handwriting practice sheets that include the initial/medial/final forms of the letters and will take us through the first half of the alphabet. These are in my own handwriting, so you can get a feel for approximating the printed forms with a regular pen or pencil.

2. A blank handwriting practice sheet in case you want to print more.

3. An MP3 of the "Hamzah on the Alif" alphabet song, because at least one person said they couldn't hear the music in the PowerPoint.

'Ila bukra! (See you tomorrow!)
