It's so great that you are working on your English. I think it must be very hard to learn a language that is so different from your first language. I am happy to help. I made some revisions to your page. I believe that I made 4 kinds of revisions:

1. I added one or two periods and moved others to be next to the word on the left. (In English all punctuation is next to the word on the left -- I noticed that you tend to put the punctuation more often next to the word on the right. I think that might be because Arabic is written right to left. I read about the Arabic language on Wikipedia -- I'm learning also:-)

2. I capitalized words that are the names of things, for example Ministry of Education. Also the word "I" is always capitalized. Lastly the first word in a sentence is capitalized so I fixed those.

3. I added a few small words in places (like "in" "a") that I thought would help other readers. These small words are also a hard part of learning English.

4. I corrected the spelling of a few words. (I'm wondering if your editor marks words that are misspelled in English -- it's an automatic spellchecker. Mine does. It puts a red underline under them. I don't know how this would work if you are working in a system where English is not the main language. I really don't know how things work in other languages, so I thought I'd mention it.)

Just so you know, I didn't fix everything in your write up. I think it's important for a person's writeup to be from them. Maybe after you work in WE English for awhile, you'll come back to your write up and notice some better ways to phrase things.

We're always learning!

What an interesting story. Learning to speak the language young is the best. Second best is experiencing the language first-hand in a real environment. These children had both.

Thanks for the link to the internet site about the amazing sites in Petra. I see that this place is on the UNESCO new 7 wonders of the world. Maybe someday I'll have a chance to visit (and notice the many multi-lingual children nearby).
