When Couples Study together!

I have decided to pursue Arabic. Well...let's say "RE" Pursue...because me and hubs took Arabic for beginner 5 years ago I think at UIA..it was fun.! I went because Irma asked me too, and he went because it got boring waiting for me in the car so he might as well  join me ..and of course the tabibun turned out to be the top student lah kan! 

Now I am pursuing it again. We stopped because the teacher moved to Nilai. and then we stopped speaking..Well it's been on my mind for months dah since it's just 3 minutes walk from my house. (next to the kids' school- now cakaplah apa pasal skolah i cannot move the kids anymore because it's just behind the house!) Anyway. Back to the arabic thing. The Arabic Learning Centre is run by this minah salleh from Bristol who married a Malaysian who lived in Yemen (or something like that) and then decided to set up a school here. 

so 2 weeks ago I roped the other half in. It's at 8-10 am on a Sunday dia takda excuse sbb selalunya pi hospital afterwards. I try to insist that Sunday is family day. Anyway first time was ok, just the normal what is smy name, your name, etc ...husband being Type A Star (lebih dari A tuh hehehe) sebok nak tanya rules lah apa lah , idgham lah irfaq lah...yang bini dia ni sengehhhh je. Bila ustaz nak padam blackboard husband tak bagi ashe was copying. Binidia, main tangkap gambar je ...Iphone babe! heheheh tapi bila cikgu tanya I lagi terror nak jawab so there ha ha ha..so kelakar ..belajar dengan husband- belakangcikgu we made jokes of it- masmuka? Masmumu? Masmumi? 

Anyway dia ada  bagi homework lah- which of course lah kita baru nak buat 15 mins on the day of the SECOND lesson..issshhhh tak habis habis habit buat exam last minute...in fact I takndak pergi pun , citing banyak kerja ofis..then he said YOU ARE ALWAYS DOING THIS! haritu gym punyou tak pergi! he said to me having whizzed through his homework (baiti, baituka, baituhu, baituha etc ) as I struggled to write nicely (ehhh nice what) ..Eh not fair about the gym..we did  go together but then SOMEBODY got to go to OT early lah, this la that la..and I cannot go by myself donno ah? 

Anyway ni 2nd lesson lagi kelakar..I discovered husband is SO KIASU when learning! Banyaknya questions dia tanya! I ni pulak try to hide behind the book but then there are only TWO of US there so cannot hide...I love languages anyway so it was fun..tapi stress gak orang sebelah I ni kan ashik tanya soalaaaaaan je...

This time banyak lagi homework dia (Ana malaysii /ana min malaysia etc etc) 

Goal of this- to be able to have some fluency by the time pergi haji.....insyaAllah..amin amiin.....
