I was cruising around on Twitter the other day, reading random tweets, and I came across an app called ‘Arabic Word of the Day.’
Out comes the phone.
Search: ‘Arabic word of the day’
Sweet! I DL it. Then I get Pea and Kate’s devices. Not available on Fox’s kindle. :-/
Day 1: Bitter; mour.Day 2: Big; kabeer.
Day 2.5: Little; sarir. (Who can learn big without little?)
Day 3: Some guy’s name. Osama. (This is a little janky because who doesn’t know the name Osama?)
Day 3.5: I asked husband what was the opposite of mour – he says helwa. Sweet.
Each day now, we review and then learn the new word. My people know 4 new words in Arabic they didn’t know last weekend. They make fun of my Arabish (arabic/english mashup.) I don’t care because when they correct my pronunciation they are remembering the correct way to say the word. This is a WIN in my book.
