Marhaba! Hope you all enjoyed learning about the recent elections in Saudi Arabia. Truly, it is an important junctures for women in Saudi Arabia, the Arab world, and beyond. Let’s all look forward to and hope for momentous developments in our lifetime. There is a still long way, but at least we are making progress. With all the hatred and bigotry out there, we need to remain positive about brighter days ahead. Today, I want to share the answers to the listening comprehension exercise in the previous post. I will share the video again from the earliest post to refresh your memory and to keep you immersed with Arabic speaking natives! Enjoy.
