In this post, I present a listening comprehension exercise about the celebration of Eid Al-Adha (عيد الأضحى) in Turkey and France. The Arabic questions are based on the first half of the report on the celebration in Turkey, and the English questions based on the second half of the report on the celebration in France. Useful vocabulary is available at the end of the post.

Answer the following questions in Arabic:

1- بم يمتاز المسلمون الأتراك؟

2- كيف يبدأ المسلمون أول أيام عيد الأضحى؟

3- متى يزور الأتراك المقابر ولماذا؟

Answer the following questions in English:

1- How many Muslims are there in France?
