Arabic Translation Exam-Answers Posted by on Mar 25, 2017 in Arabic Language

Marhaba! I hope you all enjoyed translating the 10 sentences in English to Arabic! I will plan to share more similar exercises that help you perfect your writing and reading skills. An important step in your learning journey is to be able to think, to the extent possible, in two languages interchangeably. This will be good for talking with Arabic speakers and writing short papers or texts. Today, I am sharing the translations of the sentences in Arabic. I have also transliterated each sentence so that you can pronounce them accurately. As always, dear Arabic lovers, stay tuned for interesting posts, songs, comprehension exercises, grammar lessons, and recipes in the near future.

About the Author: jesa

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.
