Δευτέρα, 18.12.2017, Παγκόσμια Ημέρα Αραβικής Γλώσσσας

Να δεις. Να ακούσεις. Να νιώσεις.
Πώς να μάθεις την  πιο κοντινή σου γλώσσα.

Και με δυνατότητες πιστοποίησης γλωσσομάθειας!

Στη Φιλοσοφική του ΕΚΠΑ, με καθηγητές από το  Διδασκαλείο, με εικαστικό αραβικής καλλιγραφίας, με μουσική και αραβικό τραγούδι, με γράμματα και αριθμούς...

Φιλοσοφική Σχολή Εθνικού και Καποδιστριακού Πανεπιστημίου Αθηνών,
αίθουσα 434, ώρα 5μμ.

Ελάτε με μία ώρα από το χρόνο σας,
και φύγετε με ιδέες που θα πάρετε από μια τόσο καλλίγραμη και καλλίφωνη γλώσσα! Υπάρχει λόγος! (λούγα δλδ, που έγινε ‘γλώσσα’ στην αραβική...)


(Πρόσβαση είτε με το λεωφορείο 608, ή, ακόμη ευκολότερα, με το λεωφορείο 250, από το μετρό ευαγγελισμός. Πανεπιστημιούπολη Ζωγράφου.)
