Learn Arabic Words
 

 

As I working with western tourists from all over the world I usually noticed their needs in learning Arabic even if just a few words.
 
Always they asking me how can we say thank you, or good morning to me in the beginning of the day, and really they were so happy when I teach them any few words.
 
From this point I got an idea to make a page in my site helping all who wants to know some few Arabic words and I hope that it will be useful for you, My advice  to print this page and keep it with you during your trip to Egypt.
