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 speak and understand Levantine Arabic pretty well.

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!

Introduction

I speak Lebanese pretty well, and I'm recently most interested in becoming literate in Arabic, too. I'm married to a Lebanese guy and have two daughters who are fluent in Lebanese.
