Mabrook (Congratulations!) to Dr. Eman Saadah and the UIUC Arabic Debate team who competed in last week's Arabic Debate at Stanford University!

Team member Suad Al Jawhari received first place at the national level for the AFL (Arabic as a Foreign Language) category, and the UIUC team was ranked # 2 nationally in the same category! 

CSAMES and IGI were happy to support student travel to the Arabic Debate through funds from the U.S. Department of Education UISFL grant.  Listen to a short interview with the students here.
