I'm wracking my brain over the Arabic midterm Wednesday--the script and the very basic grammar we've learned so far are no problem, but the vocabulary I'm finding exquisitely elusive. Just learning to count to ten is taking me much longer than I'm accustomed to...
Of course I've never learned a non-Romance tongue (excepting a semester of German and a semester of Auld Englisch), so this is understandable to a degree. I can't help, however, thinking it has much to do with old age and rapid depletion of brain cells!
