So I'm not going back to university full time (just yet), but I did enrol in an Arabic Language class which started in September. So far I've learnt the Arabic Alphabet and quite a few words and simple phrases. I'm enjoying the course as it's given me the chance to start learning a new language and although it isn't Quranic Arabic (which differs from spoken Arabic), I am able to understand bits and pieces of the Quran. If anyone is wondering, the course isn't one particular dialect, but is called Modern Standard Arabic =)
The second term starts tomorrow, and I haven't done any reading over the holidays whatsoever!
What is everyone else planning to do this year? Any New Years resolutions?
