YALLA HABIBI! These are genuinely the only Arabic words we know, which is terrible considering we have lived here for +4 years. Dubai has been so kind in welcoming us at expats into this city, a place we now call home; the least we can do is return the favour and learn some Arabic (a little more than ‘shukraan’ only used at the airport).
IT’S TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE! What better time than International Translation Day?
Ureed.com, the regional freelancing and linguistic service platform, is hosting a full day of events , and business workshops which starts at 10am on Saturday 29th September at The Youth x Hub, Emirates Towers Boulevard. Completely free.
