Thanks so much Tatyana! I will make sure I listen carefully to your audio and try to improve my pronunciation when I next post in Arabic later this week :)

I am using this Arabic keyboard to learn how to write in Arabic https://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/arabic.htm

Yes - I have lived in several Spanish speaking countries like Spain, Uruguay and Argentina so I do speak some Spanish. I make a lot of mistakes when writing and speaking it though so unfortunately, I cannot teach it sad. Do you know any Spanish words?

Hi Taytana,

You already are a great help when it comes to correcting my pronunciation in Arabic! Thanks so much again :)

Spanish is a great language to learn. It is hard for me but certainly not as hard as learning Arabic. Have you been to Spain or a Spanish speaking country before?

Wow! That's incredible you also know some Turkish! Did you learn it at school?

Thanks for your nice comment Amira :) Yes - Arabic is incredibly difficult for me to learn but I am going to keep trying and hopefully I will make some progress soon.

I will take your advice on board and try to improve my pronunciation of those letters.
