Learn All African Countries and Territories in Arabic – Part 1 Posted by on Apr 12, 2016 in Arabic Language, Culture

Marhaba! Building on previous posts that discussed all 50 U.S. states, 17 Middle East countries, and 15 South American countries and territories in Arabic, today I want to teach you how to pronounce the name of every African country and dependent territory in Arabic. I have translated and transliterated the country names so that you can use them when writing and/or speaking Arabic. As you know, Africa is a large continent with over 60 sovereign states and dependent territories. As a result, today, I will provide you with the first 20 African countries and territories. In the coming weeks, I will provide you with rest. I will begin listing them alphabetically. If you are from Africa, please tell me where you from in the comments section (below this post) in the following format: ‘I am from …’ If you are not from Africa and want to visit one of these countries in the near future, post a comment following this format ‘I want to visit…’ Please provide your answers in Arabic. Let’s begin practicing. Here are two examples:

I am from Kenya.
أنا من كينيا
Ana min Kin-ya

I want to visit Nigeria
أريد أن أزور نيجيريا
U-rid an a-zur Nay-ji-ria

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.
