I would love to learn some Arabic, but unfortunately I don't have time as I want to improve my English first and I am also trying to learn German (and a little bit of Spanish). But learning a few Arabic words would be nice. I love languages, unfortunately I am not good in speaking foreign languages but I am happy when I understand it.

What I wonder about Arabic is:
- I like it the way Arabic is written, you read it from right to left, is that right?
- How many letters are there in the Arabic alphabet? And what about numbers, do you write 1, 2, 3.......?
- How do you write my name (Marja) in Arabic?
- What is "hello" in Arabic? :)

I'm not sure if there's much of a difference in meaning, but how does it sound when someone uses the ش or not at the end of verbs?
مثلا: انا ما رحت للمدرسة
او
انا ما رحتش للمدرسة
Or would you just say:
انا ما كنت او جنت رايح للمدرسة
؟​

the language which u use is the informal,some of Arabic people use ش..and some use ما ..it's all about the dialect... for example..i say:ما رحت
my friend says:ما رحتش
but usually..the people who use ش ,don't use ما
but in formal Arabic..there is No ش in the end of the world in order to denial..
just we say in formal..لم اذهب

Any thing,,I'm here

Small correction,

ur name in Arabic is : ماريا

Hadel, Marja is pronounced like Marya be aware of that :)

btw, the number that it's been used in English ( 1, 2, 3 ..etc ) is orginally Arabic numbers, but currently we're using the indian ones sometimes ..

for me and most of ppl nowadays we're using the orginal numbers

The numbers that we use that we call Arabic numerals originally came from India.

I live in the metropolitan Detroit area, which is also home to the largest Arabic population in the U.S. :) In certain areas, the signs on all the local businesses are written strictly in Arabic, and the lettering looks so beautiful, like calligraphy. I would imagine it would take many years for an adult non-Arab to even learn the basics of the language.

Hello everyone,

I am from algeria, I didn't expect to see people interested in learning arabic language, as i am Algerian, I should speak arabic but in fact I speak dialectal arabic better than classical one, I am really weak in classical arabic, cause we don't use it in daily life, so I am not fluent at all.

Anyway, my dream is to speak more than 3 languages.
