Lesson Transcript

In this lesson, we’ll introduce you to a crucial phrase for the Egyptian tourist attractions you might visit. Egypt is well known for its 7,000 years of civilization, which means a lot of monuments and tourist attractions to see. Keep in mind that learning about the history and the cultural significance of the places you visit can be just as rewarding as seeing them. But, how do you say, “Do you have an English information guide?”
Here’s how.
fih kotayyeb ma’loomat engliizi?
Let’s break it down:
fih kotayyeb ma’loomat engliizi?
Once more:
fih kotayyeb ma’loomat engliizi?
فيه كتيب معلومات إنجليزي؟
The first word, Fih, is a particle that is translated as “Is there...”.
(slow) fih.
fih.
Next is kotayyeb which means “a guidebook”.
(slow) kotayyeb.
kotayyeb.
Note that you can use the word “guidebook” as it is.
Next we have ma’loomat which means “info”.
(slow) ma’loomat.
ma’loomat.
Next we have engliizi which means “ English”.
(slow) engliizi.
engliizi.
Altogether, we have:
(slow) fih kotayyeb ma’loomat engliizi?
fih kotayyeb ma’loomat engliizi?
You use this phrase in many situations, for example, to ask for a pamphlet in a museum.
To ask for a guidebook in a different language, replace the word “English” with your language of choice. Let’s try “French”
“Do you have a French information guide?” is
fih kotayyeb ma’loomat faransawy?
(slow) fih kotayyeb ma’loomat faransawy?
fih kotayyeb ma’loomat faransawy?
فيه كتيب معلومات فرنساوي؟
The only thing that has changed is the language. The order stays the same. “French” is faransawy.
(slow) faransawy.
faransawy.
Now let’s try with a German guide! In Egyptian Arabic, German is almany.
(slow) almany.
almany.
“Do you have a German information guide?” is
fih kotayyeb ma’loomat almany?
(slow) fih kotayyeb ma’loomat almany?
fih kotayyeb ma’loomat almany?
فيه كتيب معلومات ألماني؟
