    How do you say "Sorry for my bad Arabic" in Arabic?

    How is this:

    آسف لبلدي عربية سيئة

    آسف على لغتي العربية السيئة

    the word بلدي means "my country"

    Thanks Ahmed, I got that "بلدي" from Google translate, lol.

    Is the ي an attched pronoun meaning "my" that goes at the end of a word? If so how would I add that to the end of the word "Arabic"?

    It can't be "عربيةي" that looks totally wrong.

    Do I add the ت letter between the pronoun and the word?

    I.e. I know that "my wife" is زوجتي , so is "My Arabic" simply عربيتي ?

    the letter ة (ta' marbouta) is originally ت (ta'), so when you attach a pronoun to any word ending with ة you replace it with ت

    عربية (Arabic) + ـك (Your) = عربيتك (Your Arabic)

    زوجة (Wife) + ـي (Your) = زوجتي (My Wife)
