June 30

Learning a language is extremely exhausting. A one hour conversation takes not only constant attention to new vocabulary, but it also requires a comprehension level that pushes the listener to understand phrases, rather than simply words at one time. Today, I also noticed that if I don't know a word in Arabic, I somehow automatically revert to French, which has proven to be an additional challenge. So now, Arabic, French, and English have merged, making Arabic grammar even more difficult. Though, I think I am making progress in terms of my speaking abilities. I can now talk about the weather, my family, and my hobbies with fluency. Baby steps...right?
