I forgot to bring along a book to read while I waited for Sachi’s class to end. For a second, I didn’t know what I could do. But then I remembered the mp3 player that I’m now in the habit of carrying.
In my own class, I brought along pdfs of a bunch of close to 100 books in Arabic. I wanted to look through and find a few that were suitable to use as ‘an ultimate resource’. However, there were technical difficulties.
Also, the idea of using Arabic to learn English may be a little beyond my students’ comprehension.
