Are you planning to visit Dubai and confused about whether to learn basic Arabic or not? My Dubai Stay Serviced Holiday Rentals will help you solve this confusion. Dubai is a multicultural city and several languages are spoken here. Arabic being the official language is spoken by the natives but nonetheless, English is widely understood, and non-Arabic speakers will have no problem in communicating. But keep in mind that knowing the basic phrases of the local language always gives you an edge and will let you bring the most out of your Dubai holiday.
The local Emiratis tend to admire those who try to speak their language. They won’t mind the poor accent and gender specific mistakes. Your effort will be appreciated and you’ll be answered politely even if you tell them “La atakalum Arabiya” (I can’t speak Arabic) or ask Hal tetakallem al-inglizia (Do you speak English?)
Enjoy your short stay in Dubai, here are some useful English to Arabic phrases to help you:
