introduction to the study of Arabic language in Damascus

Syria is basically a country like any other. Everything will work, but not necessarily as how it intends to do or how you have heard that it is dysfunctional. Therefore not be surprised if something does not work the way it is described here. It will reach its target in any case, even if the target was adjusted in the course of achieving the conditions.

To study the Arabic language in Damascus may be due to the relatively small administrative burden and decide very quickly.
