Learning Arabic is Tough!

                                                                    I love this photo at the church “lighthouse” which is telling people to remove their shoes. “Shookran” is Arabic for “Thank you“, of course. Made me think of how difficult it is to learn a foreign language and how it often helps to have “word pictures” to assist your brain in remembering! This is known as the Key Word Method in which you select a key word in English that sounds like the foreign word.
