What motivates you to learn Arabic?

It is my family's language of choice; we travel often to the middle east; and I enjoy learning.

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?

I only speak and understand Levantine Arabic pretty well. Getting better at comprehending fusha and Egyptian.

What is your favourite word in Arabic?

Taq hanak. In colloquial Lebanese it means "blah blah blah," with "hanak" meaning "jaw" and "Taq" indicates the sound the jaw makes when moving up and down!


I speak and understand Lebanese Arabic with intermediate proficiency. I'm married to a Lebanese guy and have a daughter who is fluent in Lebanese.
