Does anyone of you know to get certificated for proficiency in Arabic language or get any type of certification to acknowledge someone's knowledge, like the TOEIC in English, JLPT in Japanese, etc. ? By the way, according to your opinions, What's the best middle east country to live in?
  2. Hi everyone, I got a doubt during these days about Italian grammar, and I would to see your opinions about how to say this phrase correctly, please check it out: There is nothing worst than a cold coffee. Non c'è niente di peggiore di un caffè freddo. Or should I say "peggio" instead of "peggiore"? Thank you guys!

  4. For example in my country, I first need to go the Ministry of Culture and Foreign Affairs in the capital, then fill out all the documents (ID, job experience in translation and stuff like that... ), then memorize a special terminology related to Medicine, Law, Civil Affairs (which is similar to the vocabulary in Law) and Commerce and, after that take a exam where the applier would be tested on listening, reading and speaking (I still do not know if the guys in the corner would bring a native speaker or record something). The only thing I do not like of this is that I will not be issued to translate texts, only conversations. I am planning to take the exam in the future, not yet. Regards.
  5. A few days ago I decided to go to the Arabic town in my country, something similar to Chinatown in New York or San Francisco and visiting some people I know, I decided to asked them What language in Middle East is the best to learn in terms of jobs opportunities or business, the nationalities I asked where Syrian, Lebanese, Moroccan, Palestinian and Armenian, all of them reply kind of like the same way, Arabic language and French language, for some reason majority of Arabic spoken countries have French as a school language alongside with Arabic such as Tunisia, Algeria, Lebanon, etcetera, so some of these people where bilingual, they say according to their cultural and religious point of view, Arabic is the language of sacred Qur'an ("القرآن") so many people belong to Islam are interested in this language to read the Islamic book and praying, not only in Middle East but also some people in Pakistan, India, Indonesia and Malaysia, but on the other hand, they say French is more widely spoken than Arabic so apparently French gives people more jobs opportunities, but Arabic gives people more business opportunities with Oil market and tourism from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrein and Emirates United Arabs where French language is not that spoken. So after this experience anecdote Which one gives more opportunities to foreigner in terms of job or business? Arabic or French? Regards.
  6. What is the best way to master Arabic reading without reading diacritics ("إِعْجَام", "تَشْكِيل" or "حَرَكَات") to read newspaper, Internet articles, etcetera? Regards.
  7. Hi everyone! I would like to know What are the requirements to become an interpreter in your country? (Vocabulary, documents, etcetera). Thanks.
  8. Hi! I know that the official language in India is English, so as a cause of that, all the Indians speak and write everything for overseas relationships in English, but besides that, many of them speak a dialect, like for example: Hindi, Tamil, Urdu, etcetera... I would like to know What are the benefits of studying a regional language from India? This situations seems to very very alike to the one in Mainland China, local Chinese people speak dialects such as Cantonese or Shanghainese, even if they know Mandarin, the official one in Mainland China. What you guys think? Thanks.
