Hello! I'm doing an MA in Applied Imagination in the Creative industries at a university in London. As a Jordanian I was curious to investigate the increase of using English in Amman Jordan, and wanted to initiate by doing a comparison and study of using Arabic vs using English in Amman. What do you guys think? By focusing our efforts on English, are we hindering our Arabic development It would be very helpful and I would extremely appreciate if you could take my survey. Thank you! http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MDVZS27
its a great Idea to do such study, as an "Arabisi" talker, let me tell you that many Original Ammanies speak it due to their education at home and at school, TV and type of movies they watch, influence of neighbors and friends.
Type of business, many times you go and ask your colleges how do i translate this word to Arabic, as many business word in English are fit to English language, not translatable to Arabic.
but still there are many words in Arabic not translatable to any language, such as (افحمته) you cant say i carbonized him :-)
