In the beginning, Mr. Alshakhatreh introduced the geological location about Jordan. Furthermore, he caught the students’ eye with the wonderful photos in which he drove a helicopter in person. Abrahim also unveiled the mysterious veil of Middle East by sharing resorts, camels, petroleum, black robe culures, architectures, schools and coins etc. with the students. He especially introduced Dead Sea which can even make unable to swim people floatable completely because of its high ingredient of salt. Our students were really amazed by the photos.

This city is full of ancient cultures, and now it becomes a flowing tourist spot. Finally, Mr. Alshakhatreh taught our students about how to read Abrabic letters and tie the scarf. Time flies. This interflow activity really delighted our students and finished in a happy ending.
