oh ok guys..
my father speaks Arabic....unfortunatelly i don't.
Off topic, but has it become trendy to know arabic?
it's become trendy to know any language other than your own. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
Unfortunately not. It it were "trendy" then the idiots that shop for labels rather than clothes would be doing it. However, it is cultured to be able to speak more than one language....
In my case (with the Arabic) I found someone prepared to teach me, three days so far (as of that last post of mine), then I've got to learn to write it... and then I owe someone a poem, composed and written in Arabic. Life is fun. (-ish).
It thought it was normal to know a language other than your own.
You're obviously not an American
A lot of school kids in the UK "learn" another language, inasmuch as they do the course and then take the exam. And then promptly forget it. I Know someone who's at school in his second year of Russian and I remember more (after 35 years and never having had to use it beyong reading the odd tech magazine or book) than he does while actively studying it... Sad state of affairs.

i learned spanish in highschool. my teachers promised it would be "the" language to know once business affairs took off between america and mexico. they were wrong. so now i wish i'd learned something that could at least be used, like french or japanese. arabic, i'm afraid, was not even offered. nor russian.
i've considered getting those computer/DVD lessons for a language...as soon as i decide what i should learn.
hope i'm not too old to get it.
The only two languages my school offers is spanish and chinese.
your school offers chinese?! :bugeye:
Its easy to learn a new language
