Arabic for Nerds is a blog: the place for all those who have a passion for the Arabic language.
I am Gerald Drißner (Drissner), an award-winning journalist and economist, who was born in 1977 and grew up in a mountain area in the Austrian Alps (النِمْسا) where modern skiing was invented. But that is not the story here.
I am addicted to Arabic.
I have lived in the Middle East and North Africa for more than a decade, where I have intensively studied Arabic. I wanted to share my passion for Arabic with others and create a place where people can learn and exchange information about this wonderful language.
Therefore, I have founded Arabic for Nerds in 2015. Since then, I have been writing about fascinating and interesting stuff that is related to Arabic.
This blog is specifically intended for intermediate and advanced learners who are passionate about Arabic, for curious laymen, and for nerds and geeks.
If you like it more structured and in-depth, you can have a look at my books on Arabic grammar.
