Moreover, I signed up to one language exchange application named ‘Tandem’ where I tried conversing with different native speakers of Dubai. It improved not only my linguistic vocabulary but also my intercommunication skills.

Earlier I felt difficult to understand Arabic, but with the help of these online sources, I was finally able to find my feet within a month.
