    Based on the analysis above, I try to write it in Arabic

    أنا كونت مريضا

    أنت كونت في المكتبة

    هي كانت قريبة من البيت

    نحن كوننا في المسبح

    المدرسة كانت أمام المطعم

    الكتاب الأزرق كان فوق الطاولة الصغيرة

    الأولد كانوا قريبينا من البنات

    الأكل كان لذيذا

    Hello, it was a good job, just I'd like to make you sure about something, and some mistakes that I have noticed on your note.

    * Arabic will be difficult with the latin letters, so it's so recommended to know the letters as well with the marks of the vowels. Be sure, they will be helpful when you want to conjugate the verbs in Arabic [ because we usually change the marks of the vowels]. Learning grammar, I mean the simple rules in grammar with the latin letters will be so hard and you will misunderstood some of them, but with its own letters, everything will be easier to memorise.

    * one month, if you work hardly every hour on one day to memorise the letters, be sure, you will be able to read anything in arabic without difficulties. So after it, you  only have to know the grammar and vocabulary.

    * be attention about something, the arabic has some dialects, I notice you confuse some pronounciation to another one in some dialect, for example :

    lazeez [egytian accent] -------- lathith [standard accent][*th like father in the standard american]

    * it recommended to concentrate to the standard because it will help you so much to understand the other accent, and everyone can reply you will respect the pronunciation and rules of the standard.

    *If you contact someone from somewhere, the first thing that you have to tell:"I understand the standard"; with that, this person will reply you by the standard.

    * You can use this website to study the letters and lots of things in arabic : http://www.memrise.com/language/eng/ara/
