Rosetta Stone software!

Definitely!


I'm currently using it to learn German. I LOVE the way the program works. It makes learning seem SO easy and efficient.


Boondock, send me and u2u and we will discuss it.

#'s admirable, man.

As the joke goes...

"What do you call people who speak three languages? Trilingual.
What do you call people who speak two languages? Bilingual.
What do you call people who speak one language? American."

I have a few friends from the Middle East, and one of my best friends is from Afghanistan. Farsi is going to kill me.

my wife is gonna learn spanish cause she has a lot of spanish speaking only patients

are there major differences between arabic and farsi?
is it one of those deals like if you know arabic you can make out bits and pieces of farsi....?

Yeah there is a difference between Arabic and Farsi (Persian), but there are some words in Farsi that came from Arabic...
My dad is Iranian so is my mom, but i never spoke the language very well... i understand it a bit.
Now what are you going for? (There is Egyptian, Saudi, and AUE) just like Eng., all these Arab countries have there own unique way of speaking Arabic... lol.
For example, Americans speak differently then Australian.
Moreover, as I mentioned there are different accents for Arabic like the greetings in Arabic.
In the prophet Mohd. days the greetings always were “al-salam alaakom”
Now some people use: Sabah al-khar, sabah al-noor, halla, and salam.
In addition, when you want to say “how do you do?” it goes like this: Eshllonek, Ezaiek, keffek, sha-khbarik…

i really don't have an answer for you....
i want to be able to be semi fluent in it....i would like to be able to understand the people in the stores i go to...

i guess it is the stereo type but just within a few miles of my house, the gas stations, smoke shop, etc are pretty much run by people that speak arabic...least thats what i think it is...

either way, i have plenty of time....why not eh?

my wife is gonna do spanish and i'll do that too.
