Pronunciation Note: Qatar is not pronounced as KAY-tar, or KWAY-tar, or even 'catarrh'. Arabic has a very gutteral voiced consonant that has no equivalent in English and is usually -- rather badly -- transliterated as 'q'. A much closer approximation of the proper pronounciation is 'cutter' or even 'gutter'. The other options above that are commonly used in English are objectionable. And 'catarrh' is frankly laughable
You can virtually always communicate in English, but you may well need to be able to read Arabic numbers. Here they are. Note: The first line shows the printed versions; the second demonstrates the handwritten ones.
