Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone. I am Peryhan and this is Top 10 Tourist Attractions in Egypt. Let’s get started.
أبو سمبل
(ʾabū sembel) “Abu Simbel”
For example, you can say,
رحت أبو سمبل قبل كدة؟
(roḥt ʾabū sembel ʾabl kedah?)
which means, “Have you been to Abu Simbel before?”
Abu Simbel is such a huge temple and actually, fun fact, Abu Simbel temple was actually going to drown when Egypt decided to build the Aswan Dam in Egypt.
In order to prevent such thing, Egypt had to move the whole temple from its place to another place.
So if you ever go to Abu Simbel again, it’s actually not its original place. It has been relocated.
أهرامات الجيزة
(ʾahrāmāt el-gīzah) “Giza Pyramids”
For example, you can say,
اتصورت جنب أهرامات الجيزة.
(etṣawwart ganb ʾahrāmāt el-gīzah.)
“I took a picture next to the pyramids of Giza.”
And I have never taken a picture next to the pyramids of Giza because I have never been there.
Actually, I live like half an hour away from it. I can see it from everywhere, so I have never felt the need to go and, like, see it from up close but I will one day like I have to.
