Marhaba! - مرحبا
Hello! My name is Maki Al-Hassani! I am the head of the Arabic Society. While I am British and was born in the UK, I have Iraqi origins and lived in the United Arab Emirates for 13 years. The goal of the Arabic Society is to help educate anyone interested in various aspects of Arab culture such as the food, music, history and dialects of different Arabic countries. To give you an idea of how large and diverse the Arab world is, there are 24 Arabic speaking countries around the world. Each one with its own unique dialect, culture and history. The Arab world is a lot more than Islam, conflicts and Hummus. You’ll learn a lot more here than on the news, you have my word.
