Hi Leah,


That is the first person conjugation of the verb to love/like.

Hi Hawa,


Great question! The 1st person conjugation and the 2nd person masculine conjugation for the past tense look very similar, that's why :)!

Hi Marcel,


It is in Modern standard Arabic but this host is Egyptian so he sometimes slips back to the Egyptian "g".

Sorry for the confusion! It should be a "j" of course as you say.

Hi, is this Egyptian dialect or MSA? The "g" soun in بواجبك is making me wonder. Thanks, Marcel

Hi Peter,


These are actually on a little on the intermediate side, meaning that it will be easier if you do this list after you go over some basic grammar and vocab :)

Good luck!

I knew Arabic is a really hard language to learn, what I did not know was that it was that hard :sob:

And these phrases are so basic what is left for the more complex ones...


Thank you for the vocabulary list, great work!
