Since I began teaching English as a volunteer about a year ago in our local community, I've wanted to learn Arabic. What a difficult language to choose...all those different phonemes (articulated sounds) that we don't have in English! Well, I've decided to begin learning in earnest. I found a great online program that will help me get through the beginning levels. It's called ArabicPod101 and includes the option of a live tutor. Anyway, just for fun I added a widget on the right sidebar of this page that diplays an "arabic word of the day." Thought some of you might enjoy it as well.
Assalamu Alaykum! السلام عليكم
