Learning Arabic: four weeks in TunisRosemary Behan gave herself one month in Tunisia to learn the Arabic language and alphabet. How did she do? Mumtez!Half the fun of exploring Tunis is getting completely lost Photo: GettyRosemary Behan:PM BST Apr Comments"Masmuki?” “Malakabuki?” It was eight o’clock in the morning and our teacher’s questions drew nothing but blank stares. Far from being deterred, Naila seemed to find the ignorance of our class positively motivating. The longer the silence, the louder she shouted. Slowly and methodically, she continued to bark at us in what sounded like Japanese. In fairness, she had only asked for our names.
Don’t pack your prejudices Apr Almost before I knew what was happening, I was standing at the front of the class. I had to shout “Isme Rosemary! Lakabi Behan. Ana min London, ana Britania!” Naila had elicited the first response by jabbing at my name on a sheet of paper and the second by repeating the question “Min ayna anti?” (where are you from?) over and over and over, with increasing levels of exasperation.
Remarkably, within a week we were comfortably writing and reciting al huruf al-arabiya – all consonants of the Arabic alphabet – in the correct order. This was aided by the fact that we had to sing it, exaggerating the letters so that they sounded familiar. The last seven letters translated as “Ra Zay Sin Shin Hair Wow Yeah!” Within two weeks we could read shop signs, directions and basic printed dialogue. It was hard, but the constant drilling worked.Back in Naila’s class, we moved on to the use of greetings and basic descriptions of ourselves and our families, helped by listening to some ridiculous dialogue on poor-quality DVDs. The skills I developed, however, were immediately useful. The first time I conducted a conversation entirely in Arabic, the restaurant owner could barely conceal his delight. “You speak Arab? More! Marhaban, biki!”

The biggest challenge was not the sounds - only about four consonants are particularly difficult for non-native speakers - but the fact that many vital parts of speech, including demonstrative words such as “this” and “that” and nouns, verbs and adjectives, usually have gender-specific prefixes and suffixes that must be learnt and modified according to the situation. This made constructing long sentences seem more like algebra.Yet by the end of the course we could understand basic conversations, read text, speak clearly and authoritatively about ourselves and our friends, write letters and count from one to ,. In four weeks, this was something of a miracle.

Study Abroad in AlgeriaVisiting Algeria, Africa's second largest country, tourists are awed by the magnificence of the Sahara Desert, comprising of the country. Westerners amazingly observe the goat and camel herds of the region's nomadic tribes. Tourists are fascinated with a newfound knowledge and reverence of Islamic tradition and culture, and dabble in the usage of the Arabic language. For those seeking a European flavored social scene, Algerian cinemas feature French and English films, and numerous coastal town restaurants serve mainly French and Italian-style food. For the sports and leisure enthusiasts, horseracing and football are popularized in Algeria, while the Northern coastline offers fishing, swimming, sailing and water-skiing. Algeria offers tourists the opportunity to immerse themselves in a rich Islamic culture, and to pleasure in a European sampling of fine dining and entertainment.

Classical Arabic - the language of the Qur'an and classical literature. It differs from Modern Standard Arabic mainly in style and vocabulary, some of which is archaic. All Muslims are expected to recite the Qur'an in the original language, however many rely on translations in order to understand the text.
Modern Standard Arabic - the universal language of the Arabic-speaking world which is understood by all Arabic speakers. It is the language of the vast majority of written material and of formal TV shows, lectures, etc.Each Arabic speaking country or region also has its own variety of colloquial spoken Arabic. These colloquial varieties of Arabic appear in written form in some poetry, cartoons and comics, plays and personal letters. There are also translations of the Bible into most varieties of colloquial Arabic.

Most letters change form depending on whether they appear at the beginning, middle or end of a word, or on their own. (see below)Letters that can be joined are always joined in both hand-written and printed Arabic. The only exceptions to this rule are crossword puzzles and signs in which the script is written vertically.The long vowels /a:/, /i:/ and /u:/ are represented by the letters 'alif, ya' and waw respectively.Vowel diacritics, which are used to mark short vowels, and other special symbols appear only in the Qur'an. They are also used, though with less consistency, in other religious texts, in classical poetry, in books for children and foreign learners, and occasionally in complex texts to avoid ambiguity. Sometimes the diacritics are used for decorative purposes in book titles, letterheads, nameplates, etc.

Ethnic make-up: Arab-Berber , European less than note: almost all Algerians are Berber in origin, not Arab; the minority who identify themselves as Berber live mostly in the mountainous region of Kabylie east of Algiers; the Berbers are also Muslim but identify with their Berber rather than Arab cultural heritage; Berbers have long agitated, sometimes violently, for autonomy; the government is unlikely to grant autonomy but has offered to begin sponsoring teaching Berber language in schools
Religion: Sunni Muslim (state religion) , Christian and Jewish Language in Algeria

In the Sahara, more conservative Bedouin dialects, grouped under the name Saharan Arabic, are spoken; in addition, the many Sahrawi refugees at Tindouf speak Hassaniya Arabic.Most Jews of Algeria once spoke dialects of Arabic specific to their community, collectively termed "Judeo-Arabic"; however, most came to speak French in the colonial period even before emigrating to France after independence.Algerian Culture and SocietyIslam

o Among certain obligations for Muslims are to pray five times a day - at dawn, noon, afternoon, sunset, and evening. The exact time is listed in the local newspaper each day. o Friday is the Muslim holy day. Everything is closed. Many companies also close on Thursday, making the weekend Thursday and Friday.
o During the holy month of Ramadan all Muslims must fast from dawn to dusk and are only permitted to work six hours per day. Fasting includes no eating, drinking, cigarette smoking, or gum chewing. Expatriates are not required to fast; however, they must not eat, drink, smoke, or chew gum in public.

o Honour can be lost in many ways, for example Algerians believe that turning down a friend's request for a favour causes the other person to lose honour. Therefore, they will agree to do something rather than risk either party losing face.o Things to watch out for are criticizing others, insulting them, or putting them in a position that will be uncomfortable.

It was established, upon Royal Decree, in to provide language learning for all of the individuals interested in learning Arabic.

HighlightsOriginally spread over seven hills, or jabals, the capital of the Hashemite kingdom now sprawls over hills and is home to well over a million people, almost half the country's population.
Known as the White City, the hills are covered in a jumble of light-colored stone houses, consistently box-like in shape with flat roofs characteristic of a typical desert city.Faded minarets, pavement markets, Arabian sweet shops and the crumbling remains of ancient civilizations contrast wonderfully with the contemporary edifices, fashionable boutiques and international restaurants. This blend of the old and the new combines in the noisy and chaotic downtown area where the city's extraordinarily friendly residents go about their business.

Casual visits to areas like Rainbow Street feel like study halls. Most of them are American. The numbers are increasing to the point of notability and you can’t help but run into someone of such background every now and then.

LostWithin on Sep nd, said:Hahaha!U sound just like me !I am just torn between being impressed and falling for the conspiracy theory !My father befriended an American couple who are here to study Arabic , at the beginning I felt there was sth fishy about the but when they started being regulars at our house , I just think of them as any other family friends of ours .Amjad Mahfouz on Sep nd, said:I met one who was learning Arabic to help him in Iraq….mjwells on Sep nd, said:
Hey you dont need to worry about us language students going back to work for the US government. Many branches wont take you if you have lived to long in an Arab country or traveled to places like Syria or Iraq cause the background checks take to long and the US government wants people it can mold into representing their policies. Chances are if you’ve lived in the Middle East and pay any attention at all you are not going to agree with US policies and they know that. Most of us are just looking for something different to do and thought Jordan sounded cool.

I used to be alert around “those potential-future-spies learning arabic”, until I befriended so many of them here, and now I totally believe, like MJ Wells says above, they just think “jordan sounded cool”
now, when I can order Grits in Amman, that would be scary… ahh…, grits!Hareega on Sep nd, said:There is a definite lack of Arab-speaking Americans who are willing to work for givernmental institutions in the US. Also in Iraq there’s a scandeolus lack of Arabic translators, and a lot of Arab-Americans are not willing to work for the CIA especially aftert the war in Iraq.

hasab ra’i.AldenM on Sep nd, said:Not all of them!I will admit that I’m a pre-/ Arabic learner, and that I think there are slightly more post-/ learners who got into it to protect their country from “furners.” But: ) Still not all of them, and I’m not even willing to argue “most” — certainly not most of those willing to live abroad and learn it there; and ) even among those who *do* get into Arabic because they fear Muslims, there are going to be a sizable number who learn to love Arab culture and people in the course of their studies. Isn’t that a good thing?

Sometimes our nativity can be so freighting.Mapless on Sep nd, said:That’s an intersting discussion! Learning Arabic is not just getting famous in Jordan… it’s also getting more familiar in the states… I was in a roundtable few months back and an American who’s learning Arabic in the US argued with me ( I’m a pure Arab) about a meaning of a word. and she insisted that I didnt know the correct term! and that i’m mixing up between modern Arabic and ancient arabic!!!(What the hell is ancient and modern arabic??!!) and she told me ” Well, you don’t have masters in Modern Arabic like I do!!” She was arguing with me and another Jordanian until we both decided since she’s the one with the “Arabic Degree” lets end the discussion!!and now between us both we have this joke, whenver a term comes up from someone who we feel is slow we ask “was this modern or ancient arabic?!”for me… I respect whoever decides to learn through experience… learn language from the people because language isn’t about a degree or words , its about a whole culture, which you can never speak its language in a classroom! and btw, those who learn Arabic can work in MANY MANY MANY places in the US! They can work in Disney land as well contrary to what some think, i think our language is impressive and it does sound like music , and its worth learning…. not just for a job agenda but its just enriching more than any other language….Lina on Sep nd, Nas, George W. Bush initiated a program that allocates a lot of money for scholarships that go towards the studies of critical languages - Farsi, Arabic, and Chinese being on top of the list.

Also, Middleburry College in the US has a highly acclaimed summer language program, and Arabic has the highest demand. We ran a piece about that in Venture. The business of teaching Arabic to foreigners here is booming, and Jordan is competing with places like Syria, Egypt, and Morocco… all of which have well-established programs.Over here, I’m thinking of making some money out of it myself, doing some Arabic for beginners classes or something the number of students in the journalism school interested in learning Arabic is very interesting!

Lina’s comment made me smile. Arabic is quite a cash cow these days. In fact, I studied at the Language Center at the University of Jordan for three months, and I concluded that it was mainly just that–a cash cow. The classes were overcrowded because anyone who could pay was let in, at any point in the semester, and very little homework was assigned or graded–probably because our teachers didn’t want to grade it (and probably they were underpaid to teach such a large class). It was my impression that unless they took great personal initiative to study, very few of the foreign students there came out any better at Arabic than they had been…so I wouldn’t actually worry about them being of much use to the American government.

On seeing these students in Rainbow street, everyone from the Arabic program hung out in the same places! At a Ramallah underground gig over half the people there were students learning Arabic.Rob Richer on Sep rd, said:“poking fun of our conspiracy-theory state-of-minds.”Brilliant.
You make it sound that Jordan is NOT both a center and a bridge for major activity for the CIA and American troops. The funny part is why bother recruit Arabic-speaking Americans when you have natives at the highest levels who are welling to volunteer for free (or sometimes charge as little as two million a year [Shadow:Bob Woodward])

Dave on Sep rd, said:Nas, imagine the security threat if all of those expats were carrying cameras! Now the CIA has Amman’s desperate and best kept secrets…spelling errors and all!
Andrew on Sep rd, said:Don’t worry, I won’t join the CIA! I actually want to continue my Arab/Islamic studies in Grad school and then hopefully continue studying in Jordan (I’m currently studying at Villanova), from there who knows, maybe development projects or something

Meanwhile, there continues to grow opportunities for outsourcing and trade between the Middle East and the U.S. that are greatly facilitated by both sides understanding the other better … but guess helping each other make a living is a bit too altruistic.aseena on Oct th, said:I am also a south african muslim gal and LOVE the Language .Adila on Nov th, said:Hahaha. I get where you’re coming from… still, the type of douchebags that end up in that type of work are the Blind Patriots that view trips up to the mall in Edmonton, Canada as a Foreign Experience. I guess I felt like responding because I’m one of those “post-/? (i hate that term. it’s viewed as so pivotal, {may the , that died that day rest in peace} but isn’t it pivotal that over THREE MILLION [low estimate} are now deadinraq/Afghanistan as a result of a couple decades of sanctions/occupation/state-sponsored terrorism?!? may they rest in peace) reverts to Islam that wants to learn how to read the Qur’an.

The country is renowned for its cities; Tangiers, Marrekesh, Casablanca and Fez. All of which evoke rich images of medieval tradition and architecture steeped in an Islamic heritage, many centuries old. Cities where the donkey still has a working role and the souk is a living place, not a tourist pastiche. Here you can still see children carrying rounds of dough to a communal oven or the tanners and skin dyers plying their trade in scenes that have barely changed since the 's.Arabic is an important world language and over million Arabic speakers live in Morocco, enabling you to improve your Arabic in a truly fascinating country. For somewhere so close to Europe there is a strong sense of mystery, drama and for many first time visitors a real likelihood of culture shock.

Rosemary Behan fits in a little revision in a Tunis cafeIt was the first day of an intensive Arabic course at the Bourguiba Institute in Tunis, a language school that promised to have me reading, writing and speaking in four weeks.I had gone to improve my experience of travelling in North Africa and the Middle East and to enhance my understanding of Arab culture. It cost only £ for a month, including tuition and accommodation, so the challenge was too good to refuse.I was one of participants from all over the world. Most were university students studying Arabic; others were professionals - diplomats, lawyers, teachers and retired people from all over Europe, America and Japan who were using their holidays to attempt to learn a language that most Westerners consider too difficult.Complexity is a factor even at the most basic level (a-hel-lan-wah-sa-hel-lan is a convoluted way of saying “hi”) but it’s surprising how much comes naturally after a bit of repetition. Many words and phrases - la fatura, for example, when asking for the bill - are surprisingly European-sounding.RELATED ARTICLESTunis: My kind of town Feb Axis of adventure: Syria Apr Axis of adventure: Iran Apr

To her chagrin, it often wasn’t until several days after a phrase or sentence was introduced that we finally understood what she was talking about. This was mainly because no language apart from Arabic is allowed in the classroom – apparently it slows the learning process – so it was possible to go for days in a complete mental muddle. It was only thanks to the clarity of the initial enunciation that the phrases stuck in our heads.The second part of our five-hour daily class was dedicated to reading and writing. For that we had Hanan, a much more bouncy, cheery woman who greeted all our efforts with a smile and the words “mumtez!” (great) or “jeddan!” (excellent). Given that she had to teach us the shapes and sounds of an entirely new alphabet, a positive attitude was probably essential.

Suddenly I felt like the most important customer in the world. Tunisians are so used to addressing foreigners in the colonial language, French, that any attempt at Arabic brings instant happiness. Even very modest efforts are prized. I lost count of the times I was assisted, encouraged and genuinely welcomed by people all over the city.Knowing Arabic also helped to deflect unsavoury cat calls from men on the street, and it stops you being cheated. When getting into taxis, I found that a friendly greeting followed by a carefully delivered address brought speed, accuracy and change, as well as further lessons in Arabic and inquiries as to my family’s health.

The Medina of Tunis, a World Heritage Site, is the city’s main attraction, a vast network of residential buildings and souks in various stages of decay. Rather than trying to follow a map, why not enjoy getting hopelessly lost.Public hammams (steam baths) are a fun way to soak up the atmosphere of the city. The most impressive is the Hammam Sahib et Tabaa, behind the mosque of the same name in rue de Salut, Halfaouine. The interior, which dates from , is a spectacular arrangement of pillars and arches and was used extensively in Férid Boughedir’s film Asfour Stah.

It can sometimes seem like a mountain to climb, when trying to learn the language in Tunisia! There are main languages spoken. The local Tunisian dialect is spoken everywhere, but not used in written iterature. Children at school are taught to speak, read and write in classical Arabic. I have been told by my year old son that he must go with his friends to the far end of the playground if he wants to speak in the Tunisian dialect, so that the teachers cannot hear him!!

It is difficult to offer people a list of Tunisian phrases. As well as a completely new alphabet to learn, many of the sounds from the Arabic alphabet, do not exist at all in the English language and can prove very difficult to pronounce.Below are some phrases, taken from different sources; Hajer's phrases on tunisia and the website mizyana/I also had a lot of help from Emil, my year old boy. You can probably spot some of his rather dubious phrases!!If anybody has learnt any other phrases and would like them included please email me with them

The SIT Tunisia program has been an incredible experience for me, academically as well as personally. The design of the program allows students to overcome the academic distance between the student and the local culture that traditionally exists in many study abroad programs, and forces you to fully immerse yourself. But perhaps what makes this program so unique and rewarding is the people; both the extraordinary staff members and the welcoming and generous host families."

Examine the dynamics between modernity and tradition in Tunisian and Arab culture
Tunisia may be the first Arab country to achieve a western-style democracy and constitutes a fascinating case study of Islam’s compatibility with democratic processes. Students consider the country’s secular tradition; multicultural population; and recent resurgence of popular Islam. In addressing radical versions of Islam, Tunisia—like many Muslim countries—has been promoting a “national” version of Islam that is tolerant, moderate, popular, and interpretive. Students closely investigate these and other cultural, social, and political trends.Lecture topics include: the state and Islam; relations between Islam and Jihad; youth unemployment and emigration; mass media and popular identity; impact of tourism on popular culture; Raï and hip hop in youth culture; religion, language, and identity. Learn more about the program’s coursework.

Learn from Tunis University academics, civil society leaders, artists, and NGO activistsLecturers include experts and community leaders from across Tunisian society in order that students are exposed to many different perspectives.
