What motivates you to learn Arabic?

My son's school requires him to learn a phrase in another language (he chose Arabic), with the caveat that it cannot be learned over the Internet. The students must go out into the community and meet actual speakers. Would the Caravan be willing to engage a middle-schooler? He will understand if you offer regrets, as he wouldn't want to distract you from your progress. In that instance, perhaps you could recommend another avenue?

Which dialect(s) interest you? Are you also learning to read and write? (example: Egyptian, Levantine, Gulf, Tunisian) If you already speak Arabic, what dialect(s) do you know?

See above.

What is your favourite word in Arabic?

The phrase on which he is working: "Good evening. Tonight I greet you in the language of the people of Arabia. You are our welcome guests."
