A week ago, you wrote a paragraph "Is it better to use fusha or 'amiyya in class? Why?" You also added the opinion of one of your classmates.
Now that we have completed the chapter, I would like you to incorporate the views of one of the speakers.
Generally speaking there are 2 perspectives
a. Fusha is better because it can be used by everyone
b. Arabs create a middle dialect that everyone can understand (therefore, pure fusha is unnecessary)

Agree or disagree with one or more of the speakers to support your claim about class.
