Hello,

I'm Hannay Gamal

"Try to learn something about everything and everything about something". - Thomas Huxley (1825-1895), by this quote I can describe myself, I like to know one thing about everything around us. I work as a lawyer and before I do, I am linguist (who studies foreign languages [Cambridge dictionary]) or polyglot (a person who knows and is able to use several languages [Cambridge dictionary]). I would love to study and learn all live or extinct (not dead) languages.

On other side I can call myself a theologian (someone who studies the nature of God, religion, and religious beliefs [Collins dictionary]). because I would love to study every religions on earth since humanity begins till now.

And finally I have interesting about programming language so I am learning HTML, PHP, JS, JAVA and C++ languages

Kazakh switch from Cyrillic to Latin letters

(This article is more than 2 years old)


Alphabet soup as 
Kazakh leader orders switch from Cyrillic to Latin letters

Third change in less than 100 years partly aims to distance country from Russia and make it simpler to use on digital devices.


Kazakhstan is to change its official alphabet for the third time in less than 100 years in what is seen in part as a symbolic move to underline its independence.

President Nursultan Nazarbayev ordered his office on Thursday to prepare for a switch to a Latin-based alphabet from a Cyrillic one, distancing itself, at least graphically, from Russia.

The oil-rich former Soviet republic of 18 million has close ties with Moscow, its main trading partner, but is wary of Russia’s ambitions to maintain its political influence throughout the region.

Kazakh, a Turkic language, used to be written in Arabic script until the 1920s when the Soviet Union briefly introduced a Latin alphabet.

This was later replaced by a Cyrillic one in 1940, based on the Russian alphabet.

Part of the latest switch relates to modern technology. The Cyrillic alphabet has 42 symbols, making it cumbersome to use with digital devices – a standard Kazakh keyboard utilises almost all number keys in addition to letter and punctuation keys.

The new proposed Latin alphabet works around that by using apostrophe signs to modify letters. The country’s official name would thus be spelled as Qazaqstan Respy’blikasy.

According to a statement published by Nazarbayev’s office, he has ordered his chief of staff to draft an executive order introducing the new alphabet. The switch will be gradual, it said.

Although Kazakh has been the state language since Kazakhstan became independent in 1991, 62% of the population said they were fluent in both written and spoken Kazakh during the most recent national census in 2009.

Russian is more widespread, with 85% claiming fluency in the same census. Russian is recognised as an official language in Kazakhstan.

Several other Turkic nations, including Turkey and the former Soviet states Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, have also switched to Latin alphabets.

How Long Should it Take to Learn a Language?

How Long Should it Take to Learn a Language?



Language is overwhelmingly dependent on three factors: the attitude of the learner, the time the learner spends with the language, and the learner’s attentiveness to the language.

So given that this is the case, if we assume a positive attitude and reasonable and growing attentiveness to the language on the part of the learner, how much time should it take to learn a language?

It is not easy to answer this question since there are so many factors that can influence the amount of time required to learn a language. These can include the methods used, but also the attitude of the learner. In other words, does the learner like the language, feel confident that he or she can learn it, believe in the method being used etc.? 

One organization with lots of learners has made an estimate of the time required to learn different languages.

How Long to Learn a Language According to the FSI

The FSI, US Foreign Service Institute, divides languages into groups of difficulty for speakers of English:

Group 1:
French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Swahili

Group 2:
Bulgarian, Burmese, Greek, Hindi, Persian, Urdu

Group 3:
Amharic, Cambodian, Czech, Finnish, Hebrew, Hungarian, Lao, Polish, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese

Group 4:
Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean

The FSI 5 levels of proficiency 

Elementary proficiency
The person is able to satisfy routine travel needs and minimum courtesy requirements. I have to admit that I have never found this minimum level really works that well beyond saying hello and asking for the bathroom.

Limited working proficiency
The person is able to satisfy routine social demands and limited work requirements. This is a limited ability to converse and really only a step towards real fluency.

Minimum professional proficiency
The person can speak the language with sufficient structural accuracy and vocabulary to participate effectively in most formal and informal conversations on practical, social, and professional topics. This is the first level that is useful in real situations. This probably corresponds to B2 on the European Framework of Reference. This is what I always aim for.

Full professional proficiency
The person uses the language fluently and accurately on all levels normally pertinent to professional needs. This is nice if you can achieve it but takes a long time.

Native or bilingual proficiency
The person has speaking proficiency equivalent to that of an educated native speaker. This is rare.

FSI research indicates that it takes 480 hours to reach basic fluency in group 1 languages, and 720 hours for group 2-4 languages.

If we are able to put in 10 hours a day to learn a language, then basic fluency in the easy languages should take 48 days, and for difficult languages 72 days. Accounting for days off, this equates to two months or three months time. If you only put in five hours a day, it will take twice as long.

Most of us don’t have 10 hours a day to spend, so it will take longer. Furthermore, if we don’t have 10 hours a day, we are better to focus on activities that we like doing and that are easy to organize, like listening and reading, using a system like LingQ, for example. But let’s look at what a 10 hour day of language study might look like.

If you were to study a language 10 hours a day…

Is ten hours a day reasonable to learn a language? It could be. In order not to burn out, it is important to vary the activities.

Here is a sample day:

8-12: Alternate listening, reading and vocabulary review using LingQ, Anki or some other system.

12-2: Rest, exercise, lunch, while listening to the language.

2-3: Grammar review

3-4: Write

4-5: Talk to an online tutor or with locals if in the country

5-7: Rest

7-10: Relaxation in the language, movies, songs, or going out with friends in the language. depending on availability.

To some extent the language needs time to gestate and often things we study today do not click in for months. On the other hand, intensity has its own benefits. I have no doubt that someone following this intense program, or something similar, would achieve basic conversational fluency in two months for easy languages, and three months for difficult languages.

So if you don’t have that much time, I would encourage you to focus on input-based learning, with a lot of listening during dead time, time when you are doing other tasks, washing the dishes, driving your car, walking, working out etc..

This first stage is important in order to get a grasp of some basic vocabulary and a sense of how the language works. It also gives us the confidence that we can move on to fluency. During this first stage we are curious about the language and willing to listen to the same content over and over. 

Repetitive listening is an excellent way to get used to a new language. Whatever content you listen to, and I recommend point of view stories like the Mini-Stories at LingQ, make sure you also have access to the transcripts so that you can learn the vocabulary.

To go from level 2 to level 4, or full professional fluency would take quite a bit longer, perhaps twice as long for easier languages and four times as long for the more difficult languages.

Learning Languages on LingQ to Achieve Fluency Faster

Immersing yourself in a new language doesn’t require you to travel abroad or sign up for an expensive language program. You can find lots of material to listen to and read at home. However, it can be a time-consuming to find interesting content. You will also benefit from an efficient way of looking up new words and phrases and keeping track of them. 

That’s why there’s LingQ, a language app that helps you discover and learn from content you love. You can start with the repetitive “mini-stories” and other beginner content and then move on to things of interest to you.

You can import videos, podcasts, and much more and turn them into interactive lessons. Keep all your favorite content stored in one place, easily look up new words, save vocabulary, and review.


17 Crazy Facts About Japan That Prove It’s Nothing Like the Rest of the World

Did you know that Japan has the highest life expectancy in the world? People there must truly possess some secret knowledge when it comes to the recipe for a long life. Some of the traditions and lifestyle peculiarities in the land of the rising sun may be very surprising to us, but there’s actually so much that we can learn from the ways of life in this country.




Bright Side has gathered some facts about Japan that show this enigmatic country from a totally unexpected side. Caution: You might want to book a trip there right after reading this article!


17. Care for the environment


Have you ever seen fish in the drainage canals of your hometown? Probably not. But in Japan, it no longer surprises anyone since their drainage canals are so clean that even koi carps inhabit them.

16. Cleaning is taught from a young age.


The whole world was surprised by the tidiness of the Japanese fans who picked up trash after the football games during the World Cup this year. They cleaned the stadium after each game, regardless of whether or not their team won. Love for tidiness and organization must be a traditional trait of the Japanese since they’re taught to participate in “cleaning time” sessions at school from a very young age.

15. Customers come first.


This is just another level of care for the comfort of customers that we may want to adopt very soon. If you’re shopping and want to keep on looking without worrying that your frozen meat might get defrosted, refrigerator lockers are at your disposal. Just imagine how handy it is!

14. Limitless love for manga


It’s not a secret that manga is very popular in Japan, with over 2 billion copies of it sold each year. In fact, the Japanese use more paper to produce manga and other comic books than they do for toilet paper.

13. You can never have too many chopsticks.


What is your association with Japanese cuisine? Whatever it is, we’re sure that this meal is eaten with the help of chopsticks. But did you know that the Japanese use around 25 billion pairs of them each year? This amount of wood is enough to build 17,000 homes!

12. Kit Kat for students


The popular candy bar in Japan is known as Kitto Katsu, which translates to “You will surely pass” in Japanese, making Kit Kat a popular gift for students during the exam season. It comes here in more than 300 different flavors that are unusual to the rest of the world — from Earl Gray tea and grilled corn to cheese or even wasabi.

11. An unusual dish for Christmas


Do you like Kentucky Fried Chicken? If yes, you should visit Japan on a Christmas Eve since KFC is a typical Christmas dish here. However, don’t expect it to be an easy one to get — the lines can be up to 1.5-2 hours long, as there are so many people craving KFC for Christmas.

10. Canned food restaurants


Lovers of canned food will also enjoy Japan since there are a lot of restaurants and bars that serve only this type of food. The most popular chain of such restaurants is Mr. Kanso. The shelves of this restaurant are stocked with a variety of canned foods from all over the world, so even a sophisticated guest will find something to try.

9. Slurping sounds are polite.


How should you let someone know that you’re enjoying your meal? By slurping, of course. In Japan, slurping is appropriate and indicates good manners. So if you plan a visit to Japan, start practicing your slurping sounds, otherwise, the chef might think their dish isn’t delicious enough.

8. A different way to greet someone


The Japanese do not shake hands when greeting each other — they bow instead. The lower the bow, the deeper the respect. So don’t stretch out your hand unless you want to feel uncomfortable

7. Death from working too much


Taking naps during work in Japan is not only acceptable but also highly respected. Japanese even have a term for this activity — “inemuri.” Death from overexertion at work is also common in Japan. It’s called Karoshi and the major cause of it is heart attacks.

6. A good omen


Black cats are considered to be bad luck charms in many countries and cultures. But not in Japan! Here, they are thought to bring good luck and happiness. So if you happen to come to Japan, don’t run away from a black cat and don’t be afraid if you see one cross the road!

5. Bunny island


Ōkunoshima is a Japanese island full of rabbits. They’ve lived here since World War II, when they were brought to the island to test the effects of different poisonous gases. Luckily, the horrifying experiments are in the past and these days, you can simply enjoy the company of thousands of fluffy little bunnies.

4. The center of emotions


What is the center of emotions? The heart? Not if you are in Japan! The Japanese believe that love comes from the belly (hara) and silent communications are really appreciated here. They are known as haragei — “speaking from the belly.”

3. The number of death


The number 4 (shi) is often avoided in Japan because the word “death” sounds the same in Japanese. So don’t be surprised if you don’t find the fourth floor or notice how there’s nothing between 3 and 5 in some areas. 4 is not the only “scary” number in the Japanese culture — number 43 (shisan), for instance, sounds like stillbirth (shinzan) and is often avoided in maternity hospitals.

2. A place to buy cuddles


Feeling lonely? The Japanese found an unusual solution to this problem. There is a “co-sleeping specialty shop” in Tokyo that lets you sleep with a staff member. And by sleep, we mean cuddling and nothing more.

1. School uniform


You’ve probably seen girls dress this way in manga or anime cartoons. In fact, it was inspired by the uniform of Japanese schoolgirls. The design of the uniform varies depending on the school but the common traits are a short pleated skirt, a blouse or a sweater, and knee socks. Most of the girls also try to add accessories to express their originality.
Which of these facts about Japan did you find to be the most surprising? Which of them have you heard about before? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below!

THE majority of Nabihalian roots are based on Arabic, Hebrew, Turkish, Persian and Malayu languages though some vocabulary are taken from modern Romance languages. Roots can be combined with affixes and suffix to form new words.

NABIHALIAN Alphabet contain 24 plus 3 combination letters AA, NG and SY . and there are 2 letters q and x are out of this alphabet even they can use it in loanwords from other foreign languages.

THE glottal stop [ʔ] is written as a final ⟨k⟩ as in (Ngangek - ŋɑ ŋɛʔ) word or between (aa) as a unique letter sound as in (Saat - sɑʔɑt).


Learn common animal names in Nabihalia

Have you watched the Lion King? Did you know that Simba means lion in Nabihalia ? Almost all the characters in the Lion King have a Nabihalian name.

Nala means gift, Mufasa means king, and Rafiki means friend. So now you should know why I often start or end my blog posts with rafiki.

Nabihalian words have far more meaning than the equivalent words in English. It’s fun to learn the animal names in Nabihalian.

You might even know a warthog as pumba, just like the Lion King. However, Pumba is only a nickname. It means slow-witted in Nabihalian.




Here is list of the most common animal names you may come across on your African safari, and their direct translation into Nabihalian.


Enjoy and happy learning! 🙂

Nabihalian alphabet

Nabihalian Alphabet or Abjad Nabihalia

The modern Nabihalian alphabet (Latin script or "Roman writing) consists of the 27 letters of the ISO basic Latin alphabet without any diacritics. It is the more common of the two alphabets used today to write the Nabihalian language.



Historically, various scripts such as Pallava, Kawi and Rencong were used to write Old Nabihalian, until they were replaced by Latin . The arrival of European colonial powers brought the Latin alphabet to the Nabihalian Island.
