1.
تذكرة

For example,
حجزت تذكرة لشرم.
(ḥagazt tazkarah lešarm.)
"I have booked a ticket to Sharm."
2.

"The bus has arrived."
Also, in Egypt, you’ll also hear the word,
ميكروباص
(miikrubas), which means “a minibus.”
Or also you can hear, if you go to Alexandra, you might hear the word

Or sometimes you would hear the word
أوتيل
(otel) "hotel"

(el-fondoʾ ʾoddām el-ʾahrāmāt.)
"The hotel is in front of the Pyramids."
That’s a very fancy and expensive hotel.
9.
جولة
(gawlah) "tour"
And sometimes in Egypt, you would hear
لفة
(laffah), it means “to go around.”
So for example, you can say
هناخد جولة في المدينة الساعة ستّة.
(hanāḫod gawlah fī el-madīnah el-sāʿah settah.)
Or,
هناخد لفة في المدينة الساعة ستّة.
(hanāḫod laffah fī el-madīnah el-sāʿah settah.)
Which means, "We'll take a city tour at 6 o'clock."
10.

Hi Nahuel,


Peryhan is Egyptian, so she speaks Egyptian Arabic, which is very different from Standard Arabic. Akhi is my brother in Standard Arabic. Akhuya is in Egyptian Arabic.

مرحبا

أنا ناؤول من الارجنتين

I'd like to know something. In the vidio, Perihan says akhuya to mean my brother.

Is it akhuya really or akhi?

I still don't know how to decline that noun...

Thank you!
