Tel Aviv Explorations

7 Oct

A couple of weeks ago I began taking Arabic classes. I, and everyone else who knows I’m also taking Hebrew lessons, thought I’d be in for major language confusion. Though I sometimes find myself starting to answer ken (Hebrew for yes) when my Arabic teacher asks me a question, I actually find it helpful to study both languages at the same time. I’m noticing strong similarities between Hebrew and Arabic and the knowledge from one language reinforces that of the other. Hard to explain in words but my brain seems to be sorting things out okay.

My Arabic classes take place in downtown Tel Aviv, so now I’m driving into town at least twice a week. I’ve been making it a habit to explore the nearby neighborhoods after class. It feels good to experience the hustle and bustle of city life now and again.
