The Coldest October in 25 Years for the Arabs – Answers Posted by on Oct 16, 2013 in Arabic Language

Marhaba! I hope you found the video in the previous post interesting. I am confident you have all worked hard to answer the questions. In this post, I would like to present you with the answers. I want to stress again and again that such listening comprehension exercises are important because as you have seen they involve listening to native speakers discuss different topics as well as getting a feeling of different dialects in the Arabic language. I find that different types of comprehension exercises are among some of the many smart ways to learn Arabic and are crucially important for learning adeptly.

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.
