A South Korean girl is slowly going viral in Saudi Arabia for her abilities in speaking fluent Arabic with a dialect commonly used in southern Jazan.
The girl, who has given herself the Arabic name Lulwa, first learned Arabic through a Saudi student living in South Korea named Ali Abdullah.
Together, both first started putting videos of their lessons on YouTube eight months ago, garnering more than 80,000 total views since then.
Abdullah has been studying in South Korea for three years and met Lulwa – nicknamed Lulu in the videos – less than a year ago
