Sports in Arabic
Let’s get warmed up and ready to talk about sports in Arabic!
Everyone has their favorite sport and most countries tend to have favorite national sports. America is the home of baseball for example. And, like most of the world, Arabians are particularly fond of soccer, or "كرة القدم Korat El kadam.” There are an endless number of sports to talk about but in this lesson, we’ll go over the most common ones. On your mark, get set, go!
