“Hey, Middle Eastern Studies student.

The moment you figure out that I’m Arab (and it’s really not that hard to figure out) and start speaking to me in an accent right out of an Intelligence unit, come on, do me a favor. You see that I’m answering you in Hebrew. Just like you figured out that I’m Arab, figure out that I’m not interested in answering in Arabic. I’m not trying to come across as arrogant but I really care about Arabic and I don’t think that she just opens her legs for any student who takes an Intro level course. And another piece of advice from a cousin: When you speak Arabic you don’t have to forcefully emphasize every letter.”
