You might be on the verge of learning Arabic and you’ve reached the right place! Here at the Arabic language and culture blog, we provide different learning tools to cater to all learning levels, from beginner (مُبتدئ) to advanced (مُتقدِّم).

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
