Nature in Arabic Posted by on Jul 3, 2019 in Arabic Language, Vocabulary

The purpose of this post is to help you name things you see outside every day in Arabic. Such as, trees, sky, grass, etc. It’s good practice to always try to name what you see to help you remember. We don’t all have language partners to practice the language with. Sometimes we have to say things out loud on our own, otherwise we’re only reading or listening to the language and never strengthening our speaking and pronunciation skills. You can say simple sentences. For example, “That is a green tree” or “The sky is blue.” No need to make complex sentences. Just try and practice your Arabic language skills in real life outside of a textbook and you’ll be sure to see an improvement. 🤗

Below, I’ve made a word cloud with all these nature related vocabulary words. Go ahead and save it as something to refer to when practicing your vocab. 🌄
