French Society: Ross King OR

French Society: Ross King OR

On the 17th of May, the French Society were fortunate enough to be able to welcome Ross King, an OR, back to the Modern Languages Department to give a talk on studying Arabic 'ab initio' at Oxford. Interestingly, Ross explained how his interest in Arabic came from his desire to appreciate a culture which is very much misunderstood in the West and which many of us are very ignorant about. As well as covering the general structure of the Arabic course at Oxford, Ross gave the boys a taster of spoken and written Arabic; he made a convincing argument for the benefits of taking up a new language 'ab initio' at University and may well have persuaded a number of boys to do something different with their futures, rather than sticking to French, Spanish or German as they have done throughout their time at Radley.
