Introductions in Arabic

Ready to move past basic introductions in Arabic? After this free audio lesson you’ll understand some common personal questions. Even better, using  simple Arabic phrases and numbers, you’ll be able to respond.

It’s useful to be able to talk about yourself and ask about others when you’re getting to know new people. And there may be times when you need to speak to an official person, or fill out a form.

Perhaps you’re booking into a hotel, or going for an interview. You’ll probably be asked some basic personal questions in Arabic like “what is your nationality?” “what is your telephone number?” or “what is your date of birth?”

These are all useful things to be able to talk about for everyday conversations as well, so how about we get started on introductions in Arabic
