Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Khalil: When you want to call the waiter to your table in a cafe or restaurant, you can first try just a hand gesture with eye contact. Otherwise, if it's a man, you can call him as khuya, meaning "brother," or as khtî if it's a woman, meaning “sister.”

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)
