Becky: First is a word meaning 'why'
Khalil: [Normal] علاش [Slow] علاش (‘lâsh)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'been late '
Khalil: [Normal] تعطلتي [Slow] تعطلتي(t‘aTTaltî)
Becky: Listen again to the question meaning 'Why are you late?'
Khalil: [Slow] علاش تعطلتي؟ [Normal] علاش تعطلتي؟
Becky: let's take a look at the way to answer, 'I missed the train.'
Khalil: [Normal] مشى علي التران.(mshâ ‘liyya ttrân.)

Becky: Next is the word meaning 'on me'
Khalil: [Normal] علي [Slow] علي(‘liyya)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'the train '
Khalil: [Normal] التران [Slow] التران(ttrân)
Becky: Listen again to the response meaning 'I missed the train.'
Khalil: [Slow] مشى علي التران. [Normal] مشى علي التران.
Becky: Now, let’s see how to ask 'Why do you leave so early?'
Khalil: [Normal] علاش كتمشي بكري؟(‘lâsh katmshî bkrî?)

Becky: Here's a response meaning, 'To not miss the train.'
Khalil: [Normal] باش ما يمشيش علي التران.(bâsh mâ ymshîsh ‘liyya ttrân.)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'to'
Khalil: [Normal] باش [Slow] باش (bâsh )
Becky: Next is the word meaning 'not leave'

Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Khalil: Just like in English, the word ‘lâsh meaning “why” can be used on its own, and depending on the context, people would understand what you are asking about. Moroccans generally enjoy introducing people to their culture and customs, so do not hesitate to use that expression as a way to learn more about the local culture.

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)
