It's neither. I think it's Kurdish, and it's a bunch of anime characters' names and descriptions of them.

I was thinking it could be any language written with the Perso-Arabic script, but I went for Persian. My bad.

Is it Sorani then?

I'm not 100 percent positive but I would say she does.

I'm not a native speaker, but in her videos she always talks about the importance of MSA and why students should learn MSA and not dialects. That's why I'm guessing she teaches proper MSA. She might still have an accent though, I can't really tell. But the grammar she teaches is MSA and the words are MSA.

The problem with her videos is that they're completely random. In one video, she talks about subject A, then in the next video, she jumps to subject Z, then in the next one, she teaches random words, and so on. I mean, she has a special video for how to say "bye". Come on now... is one word really worth a special lesson?
In short, they're fun to watch but, to me it's all an amalgamation of unorganized information...

I found this old coin while going through stuff to throw away, and I am trying to identify it.
The first step is figuring out what's written on it. If anyone is kind enough to provide any or all of the following, I'd be grateful:
a) transcription (in arabic script)
b) transliteration (in romanisation)
c) English translation

I tried to get as focused pictures as possible

(I'm not sure it's Arabic though. Could be, but it could also be Ottoman Turkish :/)

It seems to be a Lybian coin, 1/4 dinar, issued around 2001/2002.

Great, thanks. That concludes the search.

I understand what your saying about her videos but I dont think she is a professional language teacher and I think all her content is free. Her videos might not be perfect but they have a lot of content and are good for learners just starting out who want to learn things slowly.

That doesn't sound like talking about her YT channel.


I'm not sure but there are many language teachers who aren't trained to do it. I taught ESL and didn't have any teaching degree at all. My Arabic teacher didn't have any credentials either. She was just a native speaker.

I was just trying to say the lessons are good for being free, they may have their problems and no course is ever perfect, but I think she does a good job.
