Way back then, when I first came to the State of Kuwait as an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), the only international language that I knew how to communicate with was English. The multi-cultural school where I was employed then, it was the first venue where I learned to pick up a few important Arabic words and phrases here and there from well meaning and supportive Kuwaiti women.
Over the years and through the course of being able to meet different people who became part and parcel of my encouragement to spend full time on blogging and other media related matters, I realized the need to study and learn Arabic.
I enrolled at Islamic Presentation Committee from April to June every Friday morning and my Professor is Ms. Fatima has been a patient mentor to me and other expatriates. I want to learn Arabic so I could be able to speak with people of all ages whom I may meet during my stay here in Kuwait.
I hope everyone will know that even if it is said that the Arabic language is complex, there is beauty and sophistication to it and a Filipino blogger like myself and many others, can learn it by heart.
