The goal of #TeamMaha is to make the process of learning and speaking Arabic a bit less maddening for you all, whether that be through offering language study advice, detailed vocabulary and grammar notes, or a bit of much-needed comic relief. We focus mainly on Egyptian Arabic (Team Maha) and Syrian Arabic (Team Nisreen), but you’ll also find posts on Modern Standard Arabic, Moroccan Arabic, Iraqi Arabic and other dialects.

Caitlyn (Team Maha) is an Arabic-English translator based in Cairo, Egypt.

Chris (Team Nisreen) is an Arabic-English translator based in London, UK.
