Roland: And be sure not to overpay.
Hala: have you ever bought fruit from someone on the street?
Roland: Sure, All the time.
Hala: How is the fruit?
Roland: It was excellent, very fresh and really tasty.
Hala: And the price?
Roland: It was good I think. The first time I bought apples i was rapped off, but after that I learned. To battle down the price to be a reasonable amount.

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....
Hala: معـَـنـْـديش فـَـراوْلة دلوقتي ، لكن عـَـنـْـدي مانـْـجة
Roland: i don't have ...., but I have .....
Hala: this is a common way, to say what you don't have first , followed by what is there,
Roland: And this is a good way to get the other person’s attention and focus. and Next we have
Hala: عـَـشان إنـْـت عايــِز كـِـتير ، الكيلو ب 6 جنيه بـَـس
Roland: here the word "because" was used at the beginning, to give the same effect or getting the other person’s attention, followed by the rest which is the important part. Translated literally it means "because you want a lot, the kilo is for 6 pounds only.
although we could say "the kilo is for 6 pounds only,because you want a lot”, but it is more emphatic to start with “because you want a lot”, and then finish with what you want to say.
So let’s move on to the grammar focus of this lesson

Lesson focus

Hala: The focus of this lesson is “I want.” عايــِز مانـْـجة "I want mango"
Roland: using “I want” followed by something is very important as we all know
Hala: this form is called the participle, and it's derived from the verb, but treated as an adjective
Roland: This is why you will only find it in 3 forms "masculine", "feminine" and "plural".
Hala: the feminine form is "عايــْزة" , and the plural form is عايـْـزين. if you remember when we took an adjective before, “expensive” it was غالي, غالية ,غالين
So masculine remains the same, to make it feminine we add the ah at the end, and to make it plural we add īn sound at the end.
Roland: Let's look at You have - masculine" which is عندك.
Hala: in the previous lessons, we covered "I have, you have, feminine”, and that was
عندي
Roland: Which means “I have”
Hala: عندِك
Roland: Which is “You have -feminine”
Hala: Now, to make it "you have - masculine", we will simply change the ending to the sound "ak" instead of "ī or īk". So instead of عندي عندِك, it will be عندَك .
Roland: do you remember how to say "do you have", or "you don't have" ?
