I have decided to start the Arabic learning process sooner, rather than later… with my very own ‘A word a day challenge!’ Fun, right? Writing this blog seems like the perfect way to collate this whole experience, but might also one day be useful to others embarking on a similar journey.
I downloaded a couple of apps months back, and it’s high time I started using them. So … starting today, I will post the words I am learning here also.
Drop back to this page frequently to watch the list of words grow… Hopefully it actually will 🙂
I’ve decided to reorganise this page over the next couple of weeks so that the language I’m learning can be more readily searched – should you be interested!
I’m also going to explore a way of recording my language attempts and adding short sound clips to these blog pages … well, at least you’ll get a laugh out of these attempts!
