I've been listening Bilmasri lately. It's a nice slow-reading podcast for learners of Egyptian Arabic. Check it out if that's your Arabic of choice!


I just read about file definition, and it referred to the left side of the screen. And this made me wonder, is Gemini capable of processing and viewing right-to-left languages like ?

Perhaps you saw this news about a newly opened ancient site in Saudi Arabia.


Quite coincidentally, just a few days ago I watched this Saudi Arabian animation series that deals exactly with those historical stories and myths that are related to the site. In one episode the main character is descending those massive stairs you see above the tombs.

It is a nice series, and in . Highly recommended!


Does anyone know any and could tell if this is real sign language or not? The studio is from , so possibly Saudi Arabian sign language?


A question (out of curiosity only) for speakers of languages with grammatical dual (eg. ):

If you do software () and the strings are divided into singular and plural forms, how do you solve the problem of the missing string for dual?

I'd like to practice by reading short articles, news and such. Possibly also watch news videos, but short text is my priority here.

But where should I head? Pretty much all I've heard of is Al Jazeera, but surely there are other news sites, too!

Doesn't need to be mainstream, and leaning left is a big plus actually. I have no country preferences, other than that they're genuinely from the Arabic world (so not BBC or any France stuff)

So drop me a link or two, if you like! :)
