reading and writing arabic

Why is it so damn hard!

It's not just the artistic way of writing, it's the 3 different variations you use a single letter in a part of a word, then getting the punctuation right by ...GUESSING? as if it wasnt hard enough to learn without sukuns and long and short vowels!!!

It's one thing speaking it, another writing it! I guess that's the same if i wanted to learn to write Assyrian... I suppose i will learn it all soon... inshallah  :giggle:

But there is no one I would write to as much! I have more Arabic friends than Assyrian! The only people I would write to would be my family, and I bet half of those can't read or write Assyrian! lol

I wish I could read and write in Arabic. I can speak and understand, but it upsets me that I cannot read or write. Being born in Canada, I only learned how to read and write in English. I have always wanted to learn how to write in Arabic, but I just never had the opportunity or time. I am either working, or at school, or tired from working... or from being at school. However, I love the shock that comes to people's faces when ever I go to Syria and speak Arabic. I will talk to them for a while, then they ask me from where in Syria I'm from, and I tell them "I am from Canada." They tell me that I speak Arabic as if I was someone who was born and lived in Syria all his life. It's such a nice compliment to receive.

In the time I learned to read and write in Assyrian properly, I learned Persian, and also to read and write and write in Arabic including Persian letters and already had moved onto watching Afghan TV with a thick Afghan accent!
