Please share what experience you have with Arabic language and/or culture.

I have some experience with the alphabet (can basically sound out each letter individually but not quickly; cannot recall every one always). I know some vocabulary, mostly Syrian/Lebanese dialect. I have listened to some Arabic music, mostly Rotana artists such as Elissa. Most of my favourite songs are of the Egyptian dialect. I have also watched a few films (with subtitles of course).

What would you like to gain from coming to "Yalla Arabi!" meetups?

Better ability to understand, read, and speak.

How did you find out about Yalla Arabi?

No answer yet


Learning Arabic just for fun as I like studying languages. Would like to someday visit the Middle East without just speaking English. I have studied Chinese and Japanese, and I am very interested in learning a Semitic-root based language.
