Introduction
Becky: Welcome to 3-Minute Moroccan Arabic Season 1, Lesson 1 - Self Introduction. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to introduce yourself in Moroccan Arabic.
Body
Becky: Here's the informal way to say 'Hi, my name is Amine.' in Moroccan Arabic.
Khalil: [Normal] السلام, سميتي أمين (ssalâm, smiytî ’amîn)
Becky: First is a word literally meaning 'Peace'
Khalil: [Normal] السلام [Slow] السلام (ssalâm)
Becky: Next is the word meaning 'my name'
Khalil: [Normal] سميتي [Slow] سميتي(smiytî)

Khalil: [Normal] السلام عليكم, سميتي أمين بنيس(ssalâmu ‘alaykum, smiytî ’amîn bnnîs)
Becky: First is an expression meaning 'Peace upon you'
Khalil: [Normal] السلام عليكم [Slow] السلام عليكم (ssalâmu ‘alaykum)

Khalil: [Normal] متشرفين [Slow] متشرفين(mtsharrfîn)
Becky: Listen again to the informal word meaning 'Nice to meet you.'
Khalil: [Slow] متشرفين [Normal] متشرفين

Khalil: [Normal] متشرفين [Slow] متشرفين(mtsharrfîn)

Becky: Listen again to the formal phrase meaning 'Nice to meet you.'
Khalil: [Slow] متشرفين بلقائكم [Normal] متشرفين بلقائكم
Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Khalil: In Morocco, people usually shake hands when they meet. It is important to make sure that you offer the right hand and not the left one, as the left one is considered unclean and never used to shake hands or to eat. Family and close friends tend to also kiss each other on the cheeks. The number of times tends to vary, from 2 to 4 kisses.

Outro

Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Khalil: بسلامة (bslâma)

Hi Shayana,


Could you specify which part in the lesson you are referring to? They are many ways to incorporate "you" into the sentence in Arabic.

I'm a little confused. In one of the lessons, it specifically states that the pronoun "you" mus have a gender, yet that is not true in Moroccan Arabic? or am I just missing it?

عَلَيْكُمْ السَلامْ

In the old version, there were Review Tracks for the lessons 3-Minute Moroccan Arabic. I had already downloaded some.

Why have they disappeared in the new version ?

Hi Ulrike,


It's totally alright. I get lost in the new interface sometimes too. :sweat_smile:

Happy learning!

Hi Ulrike,


On the PC interface, you can easily access the words/expressions list by clicking on the "Lesson notes" button towards the top of the page in the new interface, and the "Download PDFs" button in the old interface, also towards the top of the page. Which interface are you using?

Hi, are there any pdfs with the words, so I can check if I understood them more or less right? My guess after hearing is something like this, is it okay?


Salamu Alaikum, smiti Ulrike. Mtsharfiin bliqar'qum.
