Mindfulness, Lesson 7

In this episode you hear Amani talk about mood swings. We all go through times when we see the world through cloudy-colored glasses. Are you also suffering from mixed-feelings about what the future might bring? At times, we feel very hopeful but then comes the day's headline and we find ourselves down in the dumps. It can seem impossible to stay optimistic in the face of this pandemic. What do you do to manage your mood swings? 

Don't forget the worksheets to lesson 7:

This lesson series is for advanced level learners and focuses on listening comprehension and vocabulary development. In this lesson series you find ten recorded texts that are visually and structurally supported to help you engage with mindfulness-related subtopics. Before you listen, read the introduction and engage with the images to activate schemata around the subtopics. This way you prepare yourself for targeted listening. Please bear in mind that concepts mean different things in different languages and cultures. By the end of this lesson course you will get a idea of what the concept of mindfulness means to us and how we experience it.

The English texts are not literal translations, but there to help you with cultural and conceptual understanding of the original Arabic texts. At this level, you would want to try to avoid them as much possible and only fall back on them if absolutely necessary; this way you immerse yourself with spoken Levantine Arabic and push your second language acquisition into a higher gear.

Kindly note that all the learning materials are free and available for you to download and copy for educational use only. You may not redistribute, sell or place these materials on any other web site without written permission.

Thank you so much for listening.

Salaam,
