مع حمد واحد قلم

Hello, my name is FourMe and I don't know how to write in Arabic..
*puts her head down in shame*

It is absolutely shameful to be at this age and cannot write in my own language :/ I tried and tried I just cannot learn how to write it.. I know the alphabet when I see it but I simply cannot write it.. though I can txt but the spelling is hilarious.. Ohh I know how to actually write my name but that is about it.. and if you wana laugh you should see how I write it, its as if I'm playing connect the dots.. shameful I tell you absolutely shameful :(

See speaking I'm perfectly fine though I can express myself better in English.. but reading hehe that's another story.. Up to the age of 17 I did not know how to read at allllllllllll.. But I thought I should start to learn seeing I was dying to read the Quran and couldn't.. The first couple of years were hilarious.. if anyone wanted a laugh at home they'd give me a newspaper and just let me read.. yes they were meanies :( I still sound funny with some words but I'm okay I can at least read now..

Well I still can't write and between you and I, I don't think I'll ever be able too.. its too damn difficult :/ Now I beg of you tell me I'm not the only embarrassment to the Arabic language around here and there are more of you like me :/

my spelling in arabic IFASHIL. i honestly can't seem to get a grasp of which "2alif" to use etc. last year, when i was doing my internship, i had to write two reports at the end of every session. one in english for my uni professor and the other one in arabic for my supervisor at work. i used to pretend to write and wait for her to leave the room and quickly call my mum and ask her to spell out a word for me:s

when some people hear this they think ini mistansa about my chicken nuggetness bas it's not funny, 9ij IFASHIL!

Count me in.

I can speak, read and write Arabic, but can express, write and understand more clearly in English.

It has been like my mother tongue.

I talk mostly English and people would have noticed, I very very rarely (almost invisible) jot a line in Arabic online.

Its not because I don't love Arabic, but its because English more eloquent to express ideas.

The choice of words is fabulous, yet sometimes in English I fall short of words to express, where Arabic or my expressions or some other language fills in the gaps.

It's all about practice. Use your blog as a helpful platform to enhance your arabic. Every once in a while, write a post in arabic. If not, read arabic writing blogs.

I'll be your personal tutor if you want :D

I was but back then schools didn't care much about Arabic as much as English.. Not till mid/late 90s that they became more strict about it..
