What Nationality Speaks Arabic?
How long will it take a native English speaker to learn how to speak arabic?
I have alot of family in Beirut (they're not Muslim) and I really want to live there for a few years, How long will it take to learn and be able to speak arabic to a standard that people will be able to understand me?
Arabic is a totally different from all the other languages, but if you really want to learn it and you would like to know how to speak it, you should start from now.
go to some community college at evening or go anywhere where you can take Arabic course, focus on the accent and the speaking part, make sure you can pronounce all the letters of the Arabic alphabets, look for someone who speaks arabic and english and they may help you.
put your goal on front of you and nothing will stop you from achieving it.
how long would it take you to learn it? it depends on the you and how fast you can make dreams become true :).
Why is Nico Rosberg going by Germany nationality when his dad went under Finnish Nationality?
I know its his mothers but that Kinda confusing. Is there a reason?
As others have said, his mother is German and he has a German racing licence. Rosberg actually hardly speaks Finnish, despite his dual nationality.
Two other drivers in the same situation are Nelsinho Piquet (Brazilian/Dutch...but also born in Germany - and fluent in all 3 languages as well as English) and Adrian Sutil (Uruguayan/German).
I need help reading Modern Standard Arabic?
I know the Arabic Alphabet very well, and I can read Classical Arabic as shown in the Qu'ran. But the Standard Arabic looks different, how do I read Modern Standard Arabic?
Standard Arabic is still Arabic with Arabic letters so reading it shouldn't be a problem as for understanding it, well, standard Arabic isn't very different from classical Arabic, it'll just need some practice listening to it whether on TV or from an Arab, you'll get the hang of it in no time coz you already know how to read & understand Arabic.
I wish I was of more help but in all cases if you want to understand anything regarding the Arabic language don't hesitate to ask.

what is the difference between hebrew and aramaic?
well I learn these languages are similar, I learn the old hebrew is very different to the modern hebrew that is used in the state of Israel, I would like to know if jewish rfabbis translate the Bible to the new modern hebrew from old hebrew and aramaic? since some parts of the hebrew bible are in these languages.. also aramaic is only spoken a small town in syria by christians is that true? what's happen with aramaic among jewish?
well Hebrew and Aramaic are somewhat similar but Aramaic and Arabic are even more similar, an arab speaking person can understand a person talking Aramaic without even knowing it is Aramaic more than a Hebrew speaking person, There is a lot of words that they both share. Arabic came out of Aramaic(So that makes Aramaic the Mother of Arabic basically) so they are the same actually.
Syria is not the only one who speaks it, but it is somehow a state Language with Arabic, there are more than one town who speak it , it is spoken all around its territory even in places were Muslims dominate the population and not only Christians speak it, that town you mentioned is Mallola and yes it is a Christian town in Syria which speaks Aramaic entirely and it is the Strongest Aramaic teaching place in the world, everyone there speak Aramaic and Arabic is rarely spoken there, Even schools teach in Aramaic and not because the people want it, they do but the Syrian Government wants to spread it entirely in Syria and make it a future state language and possibly forget Arabic .
It is just stronger in Syria than it is in any other place in the world and the reason for that is because the Syrian government allows the people to speak it in public and in front of anyone not like Iraq, iran, and Israel(I think, Well they ban Arabic in some places so they might do the same with Aramaic), Syrian government has also build schools that teach Aramaic to all Syrians of all religions. Syria is the only country in the world that teaches it, there is a video on youtube about it you should check it out.
Jews did speak it but they didn't find it, again the ones who found it would be the Arameans aka our modern day Syrians, Syria was called Aram and as the language says the nations name, England speaks English, France speaks French, Italy speak Italian, and Aram(Syria) speak Aramaic; people even call Aramiac the Soruyo language or something like that, as you notice it has the name Soria(WHich is Syria's name in Aramiac and Arabic and i believe Hebrew) Soria speak Soruyo.
So it would be normal to see Syria speak it more than the Jew or Israel in general.
