Market Sign

Much of the signage here in Saudi Arabia is written in both Arabic as well as English. I’m guessing that all signage here is made by foreign workers who are not native speakers of either English or Arabic. I don’t know when a sign is misspelled in Arabic, but I have seen many misspelled in English.

    English spelling mistakes are very common here in Qatar too. We have ‘Bekary’ for bakery, ‘Resturant’ for restaurant, etc
