Marhaba! I hope you all refreshed your memory and/or learned something new from the previous post about the 10 most common words about vacations in Arabic. I am certain you enjoyed solving the crossword puzzle! In this post I am sharing the answers and some examples of how you can use these words in a sentence. I have also transliterated and translated every example so that you can learn how to read and pronounce every sentence accurately. As I always maintain, think of these exercises as a source of vocabulary and a repertoire of building blocks for your speaking, writing, and reading! Stay tuned for more exciting Arabic exercises.

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.
