Four Chicago Public School Students left Thursday night for an amazing challenge. They're traveling to Qatar to take part in a debate in Arabic.

They attend Lindblom Math and Science Academy on the South Side and have only been studying Arabic for a few years. Most of the students they'll compete against are native speakers.

The Arabic language program at Lindblom is the largest of its kind in the United States.
