I already spoke arabic, so it wasn't really an issue. But I did expand my knowledge of the language. The thing is, most educated lebanese speak french, english, and arabic, if not more languages. Language isn't really a problem.

I lived in Lebanon most of my life. I did my undergrad studies in AUb, then moved to Canada, for my Master's degree. So I speak fluently Arabic, English and French.
