Getting Arabified

Whoever said that the way to a man's heart was through his stomach was definitely a cook. And whoever said that the way to win a guy's heart was by speaking his native language was absolutely a polyglot. LOL

Well, it seems to work both ways but I am trying to follow what Nelson Mandela had once said "If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."

My Arab speaks some European language so I have attended a semi-intensive language and culture course in one of the world's largest schools of the said European language for the past nine months. In that way, I can keep up with him and isn't it cool to speak some European language? I honestly want to continue studying but life seems a little bit hard for me and I don't think it's the smartest thing to do right now.

Having lived and worked in the commercial capital in one of the most developed Gulf country in the Middle East, I still have a little knowledge of my Arab's lingo. Since I do nothing at home for the past few weeks, I am seriously learning the lingo right...

Planning to post a regular weekly Arabic... so keep reading my blog ;-) ✿
