Spanish pronunciation is definitely easier than French, however when it comes to the grammar at advanced levels it is just as difficult. (Like many other languages) Spanish is useful though as it goes unrealized it is spoken almost as widely and possibly more widely than English. Another bonus is if you speak good Spanish you will have little difficulty with Italian (the grammars are similar) . Many Spaniards can speak Italian even though they haven't studied the language.

There are rather more people in the world learning Arabic than many would care to imagine.

Just some information for readers.

I knew an Arab once. he told me the following joke:


‎‎ في واحد معاه أرنب يبي يبيعه جاه واحد محشش وقال له بكم القرد ؟ رد عليه .. ياخي هذا أرنب مو قرد .. قال المحشش يابو الشباب أنا أسأل الأرنب ماسألتك.....

مساهمة من مخاوي الجن


he laughed . . . .

As for finding out who the real sadaam was and why the US was so adamant on getting him:

Well, yeah, it happened to one of my frens. Everything went just fine...but you have gotta remove it soon after the test to avoid any possible infections.

hi all, i'm new here..

as i'm having the water confidence test, kebaya test and psychometrics test tmr, i've got some qns to ask all that are kind to answer my qns.. thanks in advance! =)

my qns are:

1. does any elimination take place in the water confidence test based on whether or not we have scars or tattoos on our body where it's visible when swim suits are worn but invisible when kebaya is being worn?

2. are we also being checked on the fingernails and toenails in this round?

Not psychometric round....


Hi, heard this from my friend who got in on the previous recuitment.. After the kabaya rounds, left about 86 (around) girls on her batch, den there this 2 girls, one got out from the tea party round and the other one had fail her psychometric round as because, the psychometric outcome is by a chart, and the outcome for the chart must be in normal range to high range, but hers was pointing downward, and she wasn't being selected! so i think every round has their risk on it... good luck everyone! :D

its a set of questions... u do it on the computer. after answering the quesitons, a chart will be drafted out to show your dominance, ur extrovert, your patience etc it will be used against u during the management interview. but for mine, i don't see them referring to the graph at all. so it depends.
