    You do realise that the Middle East also composes of Christians, Jews, Mandeans, Yezidis, etc?

    Indeed! I read an article somewhere stating that there has been an increase of secularism/atheism amongst the Iraqi youth. However, I'm not sure how common atheism is in other Middle Eastern countries.

    So I'm British, and taught myself Arabic (with a bit of help from Arab friends). Anyway point is, I'm okay at speaking, but would like to learn pronunciation and become fluent. Where do you recommend I go? I was looking at Saudi (I don't mind the conservative lifestyle - never been one to party, and am teetotal (smell of Alcohol makes me feel sick)).

    Syria's out of the question I guess, as is Iraq.

    As for the accents, I prefer the Saudi accent the most - I find the everything else a bit 'soft' if it makes sense. Worst has to be Egyptian - A'ullak yaa 'amm lool. I hate the way the letters change from a dh to a z and from q to ' lol. The q to g is quite widely accepted I think (I've heard it all over the Gulf).

    How long would you reckon I need as well?

    Finance is not too much of an issue.

    edit: i'm so sorry for being british and not ME. Please neg me more.

    Well; Jordan is a perfect place for you, although Amman is very westernized and the majority of people there speak English, and some are fluent, and their Arabic dialect is very similar to the Fosha Arabic. Amman's population is growing heavily because of the massive immigrations from Libya, Syria, Iraq, Gulf (for healthcare/ studying). You will meet many people here from different nations, and you can practice speaking Arabic with them. You can teach English, and many schools and institutions will welcome you with a good salary as you are a native speaker. I'm from Jordan, and you can read on Wikipedia more about Amman Good luck!

    I am the f*cking West and I have no desire to interact with your kind. Oh yeah but 'I've been doing it for a thousand years'. F*ck off to Youtube and argue on Iranian belly dancing videos about Persians vs Arabs. LOL you're so educated and cultured, right? I love your food and women! So much admiration! Your democracy, human rights vs theocracy vs Shah vs Wahhabis really interests me and convinces me of your intelligence... Very low indeed. Go and troll someone else.

    I swear, sometimes, I think people have read a little too much into Arabian Nights or something..... odd. :erm: I was sitting next to this random person, who happened to be Indian, at the Library, and here is how the conversation evolved...


    "Oh you Arab? Ohhh! I always wanted to meet one here. I never find."
    "Really? Wow...I wish I could avoid them that successfully."
    "Hah you funny...oh your so lucky...your skin is white but you're not white."
    "............ok."
    "Would you ever live in Dubai??
    "............maybe."
    "............with someone like me?"

    .... odd.

    Lmao , maybe he was pakistani- tend to b like that an anyway, indians-pakistanis same blood reelly.
    Um im half pakistani, half iranian, does this count?? Oh and some afghaan/pataan blood doen the line...but I was born in the UK....man dont throw me oout loool...my best friend is kurdish and iraqi, I tend to love iraqis :-P dnt kno why.....
