As some of the Arabs have found opportunities in countries outside of their own, many have migrated and started new lives on the new land. Whether it is in the US, UK, China, India, or so on, new generations have been born in the new surroundings. While some families do continue educating the generations to follow, some are not as fortunate to observe the rich culture, especially with the influence of the culture in the new country. However, it is never too late to rediscover one’s own heritage. There are a number of ways to reconnect with them again.
What you can start with is to participate in events revolving the Arab culture. Pay attention to Arabic film festivals or music concerts that may be held in your area, as that is the best chance for you to learn about the culture from what you watch and hear, as well as from the turnouts of other fellow Arabians as well. They can be a great place to meet and interact with other people of the same culture who have the enthusiasm and interest to discover or appreciate the culture.
Another form of learning is to let your senses dwell into the taste of Arab food. Now, there are many sorts of Arab food, such as the Lebanese and Moroccan, but giving them all a taste gives you a sense of what type of ingredients are mainly used, which also tells you the availability of ingredients. Learn how to prepare and cook an Arab meal, and learn how to dine like one by visiting Arab restaurants. They will be glad to share knowledge with the interested, especially with one who wants to learn about their own roots.
Apart from that, you can pick up the Arabic language by attending language schools. If there is none in the area, you can always look for lessons online, where some may even come free! Learning how to read and speak in Arabic will open more doors to learning about the culture, as most of their materials would be in the language.
Last but not least, you can read books on the culture and famous Arabic personalities. You will be able to find plenty of books on them in the library. Then, if you would like to learn more about something you read, you can always continue the learning online. The Internet is filled with information, and the Arabs are not at all behind in that sense. In fact, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that the Arabic film and music industry are very active if you were to look for works they have done. Especially through the films, you will be able to see how things the culture is truly like.
