Many people know that men and women usually do not shake hands in Arab cultures. Few people know however, that it is considered normal for people of the same gender to hold hands. You may have heard that the Arabic script is read from right to left, but did you also know that numbers run from right to left just like Western numbers?
You can learn about all this and much more with the language course Hayya Bina, which means let's go in Arabic. The authors demonstrate that Arabic is not so difficult to learn as often said. The course is accessible to everyone and will soon be available in a number of different languages.
The project is co-funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission.
