At Bilinguish we are interested in languages and language learning. Some of our readers are polyglots and language teachers, some are just beginning to learn a new language, and some are somewhere in between.

- My first Arabic lesson EVER (Everyone has to start somewhere)
- Learning the Arabic alphabet (Musings on learning a new alphabet as an adult)
