Obies Using Languages: Alex Jabour ’18{0}

Nathan: What has your experience with languages in Oberlin been?

Alex: I’ve taken Arabic and French class. I enjoyed them both. They were both fast paced enough to get me equipped to deal with the language outside the class room.

Nathan: Any thoughts for improvement?

Alex: I would like to have more chances for speaking and listening inside the class room. We have a lot of chances outside but I think more inside the classroom would have helped.

Nathan: How do you plan use your languages outside of Oberlin?

Alex: For traveling and with family.

Nathan: What is your favorite foreign expression?

Alex: Mashallah, which is an expression of joy and appreciation.
