Reflections on Arabic

by Dusan Repel


Ahlan wa sahlan. Ana bekheir al yawm, al hamdu lillah. Aktubu haatha li'anni ureed an ata'allam al lougha al arabiya. Wa li matha? Tarifu al jawaab; hiya jamila jiddan. A laysa ka thaalika? Wa lianni hiya jadida aydan, mumkin ahsan min almaniya. Innahu ana uhibbuha. Wa laakin hiya laysa al lougha al om, fa afhamu faqat shwayya.

Ureedu an afham kul shay fi shay maakan. Uhibbu an afhamu kul shay ma aqra'u min kitaabi wa ma isma min sadiqati. Askun fi enkeltra al an, qariib min London, fi madinatun sariir. Ismuha Egham, ayna kul shay akhdar (enkeltra baladun jamil). Fi haathihi madina, ana taalib fi jami'a Royal Holloway. Huna atakallam ingliziya yawmun ba'ad yawm. Rubamma haatha shayun jayyid, wa laakin, ana sa'eed maata ana ma'a shakhs bil arabiya atahadath. Sawfa an azuur saudi wa qahira fi masr, insha'allah. مع السلامة
