In some UW-Madison dorms, speaking English might get you a talking to or a blank stare.
In the past, students learning German, Spanish, Italian or Japanese have had the chance to live in dorms where their second language is spoken most of the time.
And now, the university hopes students will learn Arabic the same way.
This fall UW-Madison will expand its International Learning Community program, adding space for students who agree to speak nothing but Arabic to become more fluent in that language.
