    Hehe nope. It's Urdu, the language which is commonly spoken and written over where I live. It literally means (if you excuse some spelling mistakes which I have made because I couldn't find any way to write it fine on this online software for Urdu that I have used) 'How far can you listen to us, how far shall we tell you?' In simple words it means that the speaker has got a lot to tell the listener.

    Thanks.

    Okay, I knew it wasn't signs but I couldn't find a way to describe the scripture better.

    Me to - to England!.... to see Ken Branagah live in the Chekhov play onstage - "Ivanov". Wow, that would be an experience. Of course, I would check out other things while I was there. I would need at least a month, I know that!

    If I started running, how long could I go for before I pass out?
    I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

    Oh well, the script is Arabic and it contains some Arabic words too seeing that the language is a mixture of languages such as Arabic, Persian and Turkish and some influence from English too.

    Personally, I don't find Urdu really hard, can be because I am a native speaker, have heard it being spoken from as far as I remember. It does have its hard sides such as the Urdu spellings being quite complex in my opinion but these problems can be overcome I guess.
