Edit to correct spelling, thanks Jawad-Dawdi The Freedom الحرية

I only know a few words but have covered 334 in the course so far.

This is the best word I know so far. I have been listening to Souad Massi for hours upon hours and am studying the lyrics to all of the songs I have been listening to for years.

I knew no Arabic before this course and will probably study for a few years before reading a simple book in Arabic but I can't believe what has been hidden by not learning this language earlier.

I have had the "Deb" album for over 10 years and just loved the melodies but her lyrics are so deep. Here is a concert cued up for the song Deb ذاي
