The next time someone asks you what you did on your weekend, proudly say it. I watched movies on Netflix to speak Arabic like a native.
Watching Netflix alone won’t make you speak and write like a native-level Arabic; you can enroll in professional language learning classes. As then, you’ll understand the fundamentals of the language, the grammar, sentence structure creation, and vocabulary. Otherwise, all your efforts to spend time on Netflix will serve no purpose.
