I will greet the class with Ahlan WA Sahlan, Marhaba, giving them
exposure to the Arabic language. I will then have the students recite
the alphabet as a class, repeating each letter after me. I will then have

hallway at school or out in town. The response should be along the
lines of hello. How are you?
