Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Khalil: In general, it's better to use ما كنبغيش (mâ kanbghîsh), meaning “I don’t like.” People rarely say كنكره (kanrah), “I hate,” when they don't like something, because it’s quite strong. That is unless they really mean it!

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 Listeners! Try translating this: 'I don't like exams.'

Hi Ulrike,


mâ ‘ajbnîsh means I don't "like" this.


mâ kanbghîsh means I don't "want" this.


I guess they are kind of close but are also a bit different :)
