Introduction
Becky: Welcome to 3-Minute Egyptian Arabic Season 1, Lesson 21 - Talking about Your Dislikes. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to say that you don't like something in Egyptian Arabic.
Body
Becky: Here's the way to say 'I don't like animals.' in Egyptian Arabic.

Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'I don't like animals.'
Nora: [Slow] مبحبش الحيوانات. [Normal] مبحبش الحيوانات.
Becky: Ok, now let's take a look at the way to say 'I don't like this.'
Nora: [Normal] مبحبش كده.(mabaḥibbiš kidah.)

Nora: [Normal] مبحبش [Slow] مبحبش (mabaḥibbiš)

Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Nora: Try not to use the verb bakrah meaning "I hate" a lot, as it will give off the impression that you are a hateful person, because this word in Egyptian Arabic has a very strong nuance. To be safe, avoid it and use mesh baheb meaning "I don't like".
