When I launched the site, I hoped that by sheer volume that other people would come and visit my website and begin learning Arabic and other languages. As it turned out, most of the visitors were not Arabs Maya Khalifa but Americans who were visiting to learn Arabic.

After a while, I realized that learning is always more enjoyable when it is with a friend or a partner. A great teacher can give a lesson that is exciting and also endearing.

You need both hands on deck in learning, and this means that one person is going to be teaching and listening and so on. Of course, there is always time to take notes, but then you are only learning half the equation. In addition, even when you are in the middle of a lesson you are trying to figure out how to put the lesson together in a way that makes sense. It can be quite a challenge.

It seems like a good teacher can get things done in an efficient and easy manner that allows all members of the class to understand the whole thing. Also, it can be quite inspiring for a teacher to see the other students enjoying what they are doing.

Carnegie Stage 3 - First Trimester
Cartilage transforming
into bone

SIZE: 19.0 - 24.0 mm

TIME PERIOD: 54 - 56 days post-ovulation

Head and Neck
Head developing the fissures characteristics of humans. Eyelids and external ear more developed and the upper lip fully formed. The brain can move muscles.

The critical period of heart development ends. It will continue to develop, but not at such a quick pace.

In female embryos, the clitoris is beginning to form. The penis will develop from the same tissue.

Fingers lengthen while distinct grooves (digital rays) form between the fingers, which also lengthen as the hands approach each other across the abdomen. Feet approach each other, but are still fan-shaped and the toe digits are still webbed.

Primary ossification centers appear in the long bones, directing the replacement of cartilage by bone. This process usually begins in the upper limbs. Fingers overlap those of opposite hand, and the digits of the fingers fully separate. Feet lengthen and become more defined.

Spine, Skeleton, and Muscles
The stubby tail is still present, but much smaller.
