Lesson Transcript

Marḥaban ǧamīʿan, ʾanā Carole! Hi everybody! I’m Carole.
Welcome to ArabicPod101.com’s Al-ʿarabiyyah fi ṯalāṯi daqāʾiq. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Arabic.
In the last lesson, we learned some words used when apologizing in Arabic, including ʿuḏhran and ʾanā ʾāsif. In this lesson we are going to learn digits in Arabic.
Yes, digits! Al-ʾarqām! From one to nine! And you are going to learn them in only three minutes, ṯalāṯi daqāʾiq!
Are you ready? Let’s start!
[slowly] Wāḥid.
[slowly] ʾiṯnān.
[slowly] ṯalāṯah.
[slowly] ʾarbaʿah.
[slowly] ḫamsah.
[slowly] sittah.
[slowly] sabʿah.
[slowly] tisʿah.
Okay, now repeat after me. I'll say the digits and give you time to repeat each one.
1. wāḥid
2. ʾiṯnān
3. ṯalāṯah
4. ʾarbaʿah
5. ḫamsah
6. sittah
7. sabʿah
8. ṯamāniah
9. tisʿah
Great job!
What is before wāḥid? Do you know? It’s the zero in English or ṣifr.
[slowly] ṣifr.
You don’t have any more excuses! You can give your friends your cell phone number in Arabic!
Let’s try together.
We’ll use the phrase raqmī huwa… which means “my number is:”
[slowly] raqmī huwa...
Raqmī huwa,...
ṣifr, ṯalāṯah, sabʿah, wāḥid, ʾiṯnān, ʾarbaʿah, tisʿah, Sittah,
Can you read it by yourself?
Do you know the Arabic word for “ten”? In the next lesson we are going to learn the numbers from ten to one hundred in Arabic. Your task now is to practice the numbers we studied in this lesson, from ṣifr to tisʿah!
ʾilā al-liqāʾ!
