Most of us Expats in the UAE interact more with other Nationalities apart from the Arabic Speaking Nations. The Post was meant in 'Good Spirit.' Take a look at my previous posting, and you find that I have offered 'The Basics' in Hindi, Tagalog, and Russian, together with Arabic. I do not consider that I am going 'Off-Topic' at all - Just trying to help? However, if you consider this (in some way) wrong, I am prepared to capitulate, and deprive everyone of the benefit of having a few words and expressions used commonly in the Gulf Region.

So can we learn one arabic word a day please- I know some of the regulars on here speak a certain ammount so am sure we can all learn something. If we can have it idiot proof please eg;

Pronounced as shook_ran
Meaning- thank you

anyone else interested?

Seems clear to me.

I was merely expressing an 'Opinion' in my previous post. If you wish to remain ignorant because something does not meet the 'Rules' then that is fine by me!

Just to reiterate - But if that is the way in which it goes, who am I to complain?
