5 Arab Countries Part One Posted by on Jan 6, 2021 in arab countries, Arabic Language, Vocabulary

In this post, we’ll be looking at some interesting fact questions about five different  بِلاد عَرَبية Arab countries (المَغْرِب Morocco, لُبنان Lebanon, فِلسطين Palestine, العِراق Iraq, and ليبيا Libya). Answers will be provided in the next post. We’ll also be learning vocabulary related to describing countries in terms of location, language, culture, etc.

First, take a look at the four different ways we can refer to the Arab countries or region. Then look at each country’s name and say the first thing that comes to your mind. Are you able to say it or phrase it in Arabic?
