Improve Your English!!

If you want to improve your English / Arabic please buy stories like these. These stories are written in both English and Arabic (side by side), so if you don't know what a word means or if you don't understand an idea in one language, you can always look at the other side of the page and understand what is meant using the second language. 

You can find these books in Jarir Bookstore in Hawally.

The Painting My Dad Rejected

In class, I once spoke about the time I decided to suddenly test my artistic abilities and start painting. When I enthusiastically showed my dad my very first painting (below), he wasn't really impressed and told me not to waste my time and to focus on other things in life. I still paint until this very day. 

P.S. I know what you're all thinking and I'm sorry it's not for sale.
