More fun with Arabic, part I

I occasionally make bombastic comments about language learning when asked questions like “What language do you feel like learning next? Isn’t that extremely difficult?”

My response could typically be “Oh, well if you already know how to speak x and y and have a basic understanding of the grammatical structure of z, then learning q should only take a very short time.” Super-blasé I know, but I really think it’s true, and I’ve realised this even more in the past few months, that one language that has had a broad influence on languages all over the world is Arabic, which I luckily learnt at quite a young age. 908 more words
