Run with Saudi Women in the Open Air! (1) Posted by on Sep 26, 2017 in Arabic Language, Culture, Grammar, Pronunciation, Vocabulary

Marhaba! By now you have probably realized that I like to share with you news about Arab women and their efforts to constantly push their boundaries and achieve their goals. Today I am sharing with you a news clip about a group of Saudi women that have been practicing the sports of running in open air.

This is both an informative clip as well as a way, as always, to test your listening comprehension skills and improve your grammar, vocabulary, and to practice your pronunciation. I have shared the youtube video from the channel al-Arabiya and included questions for you to answer. I hope you can try to answer as much as possible from these questions and await the answers in the next post!

1. What is the running team called?
2.What is one important goal for this group?
3. How many women are in the team today?
4. Why is it important for these women to run in open air?
5. What are the team’s future plans?

Stay tuned for the answers and upcoming posts!
Happy Learning!
Have a nice day!!
نهاركم سعيد

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.
