The first in my monthly video series tracking my Arabic language learning projects. This year’s focus: reading. Getting comfortable with reading, and then getting fast with reading. First thing: English language books translated into Arabic. It’s easier to read translations to a language than books written in target language- I’ll write a post about translation theories and why soonish. In the second half of the year I plan to move onto contemporary literature written in Arabic.
This is the beginning of YEAR FOUR of what I’m calling my “Autodidact Degree” in Arabic Language and Middle Eastern Studies. More on that soon.
