Marhaba! Listening to Maha talk about her passion for her sports has enticed me to go ahead and exercise myself! I hope you enjoyed Maha’s story as well. As more and more female athletes break barriers in the Arab world and around the world, champions like Maha are indeed an inspiration. I have provided you the answers for the listening comprehension exercise. I have also shared again the news clip for BBC Arabic to refresh your memory.

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.
