Nationalities in Arabic

In this lesson, you’ll learn how to answer that all important question that you’ll be asked frequently – Inta Menin? – Where are you from?

No matter how good your Arabic is, most people in Arabic-speaking countries will know you’re not a native speaker. As such, this is one of the first questions someone will ask you. You can answer this simply with the country you’re from "Ana min Engiltira" (I’m from England). But you can also answer by using the nationality form "Ana Inglizi" (I'm English). Today we’ll be going over the second way of talking about where you’re from and nationalities in Arabic.
