Have you ever tried to write arabic with a biro? It's a pain because biros don't do dots well, just dashes. So I need a special inky pen which does exactly what I want it to.
My next need is for a brain which retains info. I have learnt and relearnt 5 things several times already this evening: damma, shadda, fatha, kasra and skun. My little pieces of paper with the squiggles in the back and the words on the front are going up to bed with me. I *will* learn this.
I also have my 11 letters on more slips of paper, plus with the different squiggles. I *will* be able to read each one and instantly add the correct vowel to it.
As a treat I plan to pick several out at random and write them out as if they were a real word. A CVC exercise. Some letters link to the next one and some stand alone, but not too far from the next bit otherwise they would look like another word!
I also have to learn the vocab we already have but don't actually remember yet.
