September 12, 2016 |

It seems that 2016 has not been an easy year for anyone. In fact, it’s been so noticeably bad that a quick Google search of the contiguous numbers “2016” yields results such as: Slate’s, “Is 2016 the Worst Year in History“, The Atlantic’s, “How to Deal with 2016 Despair“, and Foreign Policy’s, “2016: The Theory Behind a Very Bad Year (And It’s Only Half Over)“.

CU Denver Student Hones Language Skills in Jordan

Did you know that the English words “sugar” and “cotton” come from Arabic? Although different languages may share similar words or derivatives, learning another language can still be challenging; Arabic, for example, takes an average of at least 88 weeks of classroom study for a native English speaker to acquire proficiency. To dive even further into learning Arabic, Aaron Ferencik, a senior at the University of Colorado Denver, took the plunge and spent a summer studying abroad at the Princess Sumaya University of Technology in Amman, Jordan.
