Want to learn Arabic?

While the majority of IHRC’s collections are in English, several do contain materials in other languages. The IHRC’s especially rich Phillip K. Hitti and Frank Maria Papers as well as the Near East-related print holdings are among those containing materials in Arabic. Would you like to be able to fully explore these collections? Mizna, a forum located in Minneapolis which promotes Arab culture, is offering evening classes to learn the language. FFI: phone 612-788-6920, Web: http://mizna.org/classes/index.html
