Marhaba! At most schools and universities around the world, especially ones in North America and the Middle East, tens of thousands of students celebrate the end of the learning journey in May. It could be a Bachelor, Master, or Doctoral degree, or a professional license, we have all in different ways participated in a graduation ceremony. One of my childhood friends is graduating with a Masters’ degree in Physics on 27 May 2016 from the American University of Beirut. Given that you or loved ones might be graduating soon, I think it is important to learn the 10 most common words about graduation in Arabic. I am sharing these words in a fun Arabic crossword puzzle.

About the Author: jesa

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
