Sports in Arabic

Let’s get warmed up and ready to talk about sports in Arabic!

Everyone has their favorite sport and most countries tend to have favorite national sports. America is the home of baseball for example. And, like most of the world, Arabians are particularly fond of soccer, or "كرة القدم Korat El kadam”. There are an endless number of sports to talk about but in this lesson, we’ll go over the most common ones. On your mark, get set, go!

Bet7ib El Reyada?

Do you like sports?

بتحب رياضة ايه؟

Bet7ib Reyadit Eah?

Right, I’m getting worn out from all this talk about sports. Time for a water break!

I hope we’ve covered your favorite sport. Next time you are watching or playing your favorite sport, think about it in Arabic. And when you meet an Arabic speaker, strike up a conversation about sports to put your practice to good use!
