Re: Arabic عربية

أشعر بالدهشة لقلة متحدثي اللغة العربية هنا.
I'm surprised that only a few people speak arabic here.

Re: Arabic عربية

I have studied Classical Arabic on and off for a few years. It was the most intense and challenging, yet most amazingly deep thing I have ever studied. I hope to take it up again. Masters of Classical Arabic, are truly amazing, it is such a deep and complex language, I was awed almost every class.

If you like Arabic Calligraphy you should look up this Chinese Calligrapher named Haji Noor Deen. His work is truly inspiring, his Arabic Calligraphy is really cool, and he has developed his own unique style that incorporates Chinese styles also. I love it, a meld of two of the most beautiful languages in my opinion.

Here is a link to his site. http://www.hajinoordeen.com/

Re: Arabic عربية

Wow, I can't imagine having to learn arabic as a second language. It's really tough and very different from English!

I've been thinking similarly about it. I decided to investigate how I might learn some Arabic, but it quickly became apparent that I don't have the time to do it on my own. The grammar is complex but not draconian, and it's apparently regular enough--after all people do learn to speak Arabic as a second language. What really fascinates me about Semitic languages is how the consonantal root/core pairings work systematically. Anyway, this is all on the back burner until I'm satisfied that I speak English.

The same what you'd think when you look at a chinese writing? .

It has many styles but I can only write in one. . I once joined a group in the school to learn others, but I didn't make much success,

It must need a lot of dedication to learn it as a second language, I think. The grammer is quite difficult compared to English, to me at least! And its supposed to be my first language,

Oh! How did you know before I even write? Yes, I have an Egyptian accent!

أنا كويسة، يا تري أنتي من سوريا؟ ولا من لبنان؟ مش بعرفهم من بعض! أنا فعلا من مصر، بس مش عايشه في اوروبا.

I think you couldn't understad coz I didn't write in formal Arabic exactly.
but I'd like to know , are you learning Arabic as a second language...and what is your first language,coz some are really similar...
I think the best way to improve your learning is by direct conversation with good Arabic speakers, so you can find its sound familiar as possible, beacause as you said reading isn't a big deal but understanding is harder ...

Re: Arabic عربية

I've always thought the caligraphy for the Arabic language is so beautiful and kind of mysterious looking. Growing up, reading "101 Arabian Nights," was about as close as I got to anything Arabic. But, those stories were so amazing and have always stuck with me.

I'm really glad that I don't have to learn English as a second language, as I hear it is really difficult to learn. Goodness knows there are people I hear all the time whose first language is English, and they murder it so badly I just cringe when I hear it.

I've always been facintated with the Arabic and Moorish architecture and art. I love the ornate shapes and decorations, and the colors are so vibrant and beautiful.

Since I was a child, I've had a facination with ancient Egypt. I would love to learn to read hieroglyphic and be able to translate them to English. (Wonder if that "Rosetta Stone" language program has any tutorials on hieroglyphs?)

Looking at the messages you all have been sending each other, the Arabic writing is so pretty and artistic. It's really beautiful.

Arabic literature is beautiful! If you're interested in it, I can recommend some works for you.

I don't know about this language programme. But there are plenty of books for learning hieroglyph. It's very different from arabic though.

Here you go! That's your username translated into Arabic,

It's read: Qittat Minerva

They certainly do! If you could write anything in Arabic, I could tell you if you have it or not. Jordanian accent isn't much different from syrian accent, (what N Mado wrote).

ما بتذكر وين سمعت اول مرة ب هاري بوتر ...... المهم كنت صغيرة....... بس مو من زمان خلصت قراءة الروايات..
كأنو إلك زمان هون بالمنتدي..... معناها بدك تساعديني كتير

ليش لحتى تغاري من الأسماء .... ما بعتقد في كتير فرق بين أسماء مصر و سورية....بعدين اسمك من اسمائي الخمسة المفضلة..
