European Countries Names In Arabic

No matter how good your Arabic is, most people in Arabic speaking countries will know you’re not a native speaker, so if you’re a foreigner visiting or living in an Arab country, you might be frequently asked the following question: min ayn ant?/ من أين انت؟  . Basically, an Arab is asking you, “Where are you from?”

You can answer this simply with the country you’re from: ana min britania (I’m from Britain). But you can also answer by using the nationality form: ana britani (I’m British).

Today we’ll be going over the names of European countries and their nationalities in Arabic.
