Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Becky: Welcome to 3-Minute Moroccan Arabic Season 1, Lesson 9 - Using Adjectives. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to use adjectives in simple sentences in Moroccan Arabic.
Body
Becky: Here's the way to say 'I am Moroccan.' for a man in Moroccan Arabic.
Khalil: [Normal] أنا مغربي (’anâ mghribî)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'I '
Khalil: [Normal] أنا [Slow] أنا (’anâ)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'Moroccan (masculine) '
Khalil: [Normal] مغربي [Slow] مغربي (mghribî)
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'I am Moroccan.'
Khalil: [Slow] أنا مغربي [Normal] أنا مغربي
Becky: Ok, now let's take a look at the way to say 'I am Moroccan.' for a woman
Khalil: [Normal] انا مغربية (’anâ mghribiyya)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'I '
Khalil: [Normal] انا [Slow] انا (’anâ)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'Moroccan (feminine) '
Khalil: [Normal] مغربية [Slow] مغربية (mghribiyya)
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'I am Moroccan.'
Khalil: [Slow] انا مغربية [Normal] انا مغربية
Becky: Next up is the way to say 'We are Moroccan.'
Khalil: [Normal] حنا مغاربة (Hnâ mghârba)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'We'
Khalil: [Normal] حنا [Slow] حنا (Hnâ)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'Moroccans '
Khalil: [Normal] مغاربة [Slow] مغاربة (mghârba)
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'We are Moroccan.'
Khalil: [Slow] حنا مغاربة [Normal] حنا مغاربة
Becky: Finally, here is a way to say 'You are Moroccan. (masculine) '
Khalil: [Normal] انت مغربي(’nta mghribî)
Becky: First is a word meaning 'You '
Khalil: [Normal] انت [Slow] انت(’nta)
Becky: Last is the word meaning 'Moroccan '
Khalil: [Normal] مغربي [Slow] مغربي (mghribî)
Becky: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'You are Moroccan. '
Khalil: [Slow] انت مغربي [Normal] انت مغربي
Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Khalil: You can use these sentences to introduce yourself and where you come from easily. Just replace the word Moroccan with the one for another nationality. For example American is mirikânî/مِرِكَانِي , Chinese is chinwî/شِنْوِي, Italian is Talyânî/طَلْيَانِي. These were in the masculine form, to make them feminine, you just change the last part by adding the 'a' vowel at the end. So the feminine form of the previous words becomes mirikâniyya/ َّمِرِكَانِية , Chinese is chinwiyya/شِنْوِيَّة, Italian is Talyâniyya/طَلْيَانِيَّة.

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!

I'd just like to know what you call "Indian" in Moroccan Arabic. It would be of great help.

Thanks,

Ahana

It would be wonderful if there was a way of adding the words given in the Cultural insights section to the word lists. They are very important
