رولاند: يلا بينا، إحنا على الفصـل ، و إنتي على المـكـتـبة !
Roland: Let's go—us to our class and you to the library!
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Hala: Arabic people are known to be very friendly, so sometimes, if you use words showing that you are doing so well, or something is wrong, people won’t just ask a small ( what’s wrong )
Roland: yes, but will mostly insist on knowing and trying to help, it might insult them if you didn't say, it could mean you don’t trust them, privacy is well respected here, but human relations are also very important
Hala: now,if you don't want to say what’s really wrong, you can say something like ( couldn't sleep very well ), ( ate something that wasn’t fresh ), and so on, but never take it personally when people ask and insist on knowing what’s bothering you, it's just our nature !

VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Roland: Let's have a closer look at the usage for some of the words and phrases from this lesson.
Hala: The first word/phrase we’ll look at is ( مِيَّة مِيَّة, miyyah miyyah )
A a very informal expression, and very common as well, when using numbers, miyya means ( 100 ), so by saying ( miyya miyya ), this means 100% which is excellent or perfect, can be used to express your mood, health, how you like something, food or even a movie, or with people. Roland, how many times have heared this word?
Ruland: hundreds of times, and our second phrase is
Hala: مِشْ بَطّال, miš baṭṭal
Ruland: Not so bad, another informal and common expression, can be used the same way as ( miyya miyya ), this one says you are not excellent, so expect people asking you ( why, whats wrong ), and trying to help you.
Hala: so be careful with the word you use, unless you are willing to practice your Arabic telling people why your not miyya miyya !
Ruland: and the last expression is
Hala: يَلّا بِينا, yallā biīnā
Means lets go, can be used alone , as lets go do it, and we can also use it with verbs. Depends on the conversation, if it is followed by verb, it means let’s go and do this. (, for example yalla nakul ),lets eat and so on, we can also use it to rush someone, if he’s late, like (yallā yallā).

Lesson focus

Roland: The focus of this lesson is…
Hala: possissive pronouns with masculine nouns. We are going to form “Our” with a masculine noun. let’s take the word “class” or “فَصِل, faṣil”, we will do the same as before, and we will add “na”, and that will mean “our”. So “فَصِلنا, faṣilna”, In this case it is easier to add the small “i” sound to make it “فَصِلِنا, faṣilina. To say “my class” we will add “ī” sound in the end. So it will be “ فَصْلي, faṣlī”. If you want to say “your class” for a group of people, we will add the sound “kū” in the end, so we will have “فَصْلُكو, faṣlukū”

Outro

Roland: That just about does it for today.
Ruland: Before we go, we want to tell you about a way to drastically improve your pronunciation.
Hala: The voice recording tool...
Ruland: Yes, the voice recording tool in the premium learning center...
Hala: Record your voice with a click of a button,
Ruland: and then play it back just as easily.
Hala: So you record your voice, and then listen to it.
Ruland: Compare it to the native speakers...
Hala: And adjust your pronunciation!
Ruland: This will help you improve your pronunciation fast!
Roland: مع ألف سلامة
Hala: مع السلامة، أشوفكو بعدين

The new girl's way of speaking is hard to understand! It's very slurred 😳

Hi Oksana,


It's because it has 2 extra extensions between the three letters. It should be:

جنب

it means "next to".
