SQCC Sabla Program: Summer Arabic Language Immersion
The Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center (SQCC) announces its 2017 Summer Arabic Language Immersion Program Sabla, a partially-funded intensive Arabic language scholarship program.
The inaugural program will be held at SQCC’s headquarters, located in the heart of Washington, D.C. This intensive Arabic language program will allow students to gain a deeper knowledge of Arabic while becoming familiar with Omani history and culture in a fun and positive learning environment. The program provides opportunities to a diverse range of students from across the United States at every level of language learning.
In addition to classroom language instruction, students can explore the best of Washington, D.C. with organized trips to museums, extracurricular activities, guest lectures and other cultural programming.
The word Sabla in Omani dialect refers to a place in each community where people gather and receive hospitality. Sabla also serves as a meeting place to discuss important public issues.
The Sabla program aspires to be a hub bringing together students from across the U.S. for a rich linguistic and cultural exchange. The program hopes to enable students to be active learners and form a community to cultivate a lifelong Arabic language learning experience.

Advanced Beginners, Low Intermediate, High Intermediate, and Advanced

ANC 5B Monthly Meeting @ Elsie Whitlow Stokes PCS
Jun 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Advisory Neighborhood Commission 5B represents the Langdon, Arboretum, Brentwood, Brookland, Ivy City, Trinidad, Carver, and Langston neighborhoods. The Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANC) consider a wide range of policies and programs affecting their neighborhoods, including traffic, parking, recreation, street improvements, liquor licenses, zoning, economic development, police protection, sanitation and trash collection, and the District’s annual budget. In each of these areas, the intent of the ANC legislation is to ensure input from an advisory board that is made up of the residents of the neighborhoods that are directly affected by government action. The ANCs are the body of government with the closest official ties to the people in a neighborhood. The ANCs present their positions and recommendations on issues to various District government agencies, the Executive Branch and the DC Council. They also present testimony to independent agencies, boards and commissions, usually under rules of procedure specific to those entities. By law the ANCs may also present their positions to federal agencies.
