City resident joins Arabic program

NORMAN — One of six University of Oklahoma students taking part in the yearlong overseas Arabic Language Flagship Program is Muskogee resident Cade Roberts.

The group returned from Alexandria, Egypt after successfully reaching Level 3 speaking proficiency on the Interagency Language Roundtable scale.

This is equivalent to the Superior level of proficiency in the Arabic language on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages scale. For the past two years, OU students in the Arabic Flagship Program achieved a 100 percent success rate reaching the designated goal of proficiency level in Arabic.

The students spent the 2012-13 academic year in Egypt immersed in the Arabic culture while studying at Alexandria University.

Founded in the fall of 2008, the OU Arabic Language Flagship Partner Program is a merit-based undergraduate program designed for learners of Arabic who seek to achieve superior language proficiency while pursuing degrees in the academic majors of their choice.
