Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Nora: In Arabic, the word that translates to "to like" and "to love" is the same; it's the verb yhebb. How do you know which one they mean then? The only way to know which one is intended is by context. But usually, if it’s followed by a person's name, it probably means that you love them, so be careful about using it in that context! It might cause misunderstandings.
