Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Alisha: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Arabic learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Lesson focus

Alisha: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question ""Do you have a cell phone?"" In Arabic this is
Carole: هل عندك هاتف خلوي؟
Alisha: The first word in the question is
Carole: هل
Alisha: ""meaning do"" in English.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) هل
Alisha: Listen again and repeat.
Carole: هل
{Pause}
Alisha: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Carole: عندك
Alisha: meaning you have.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) عندك
Alisha: Now repeat.
Carole: عندك
{Pause}
Alisha: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Carole: هل عندك
{pause}
Alisha: And next
Carole: هاتف
Alisha: meaning phone.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) هاتف
Alisha: Now repeat.
Carole: هاتف
{Pause}
Alisha: Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Carole: هل عندك هاتف
{pause}
Alisha: And next
Carole: خلوي؟
Alisha: meaning cell.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) خلوي
Alisha: Now repeat.
Carole: خلوي
{Pause}
Alisha: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Carole: هل عندك هاتف خلوي؟
{pause}
★ Note that this is how you ask “What’s your name?” if you are asking a male person. If you are asking a female person, you would say:
Carole: هل عندك هاتف خلوي؟
Alisha: Please repeat.
Carole: هل عندك هاتف خلوي؟
{pause}
Alisha: (You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies.) Master the following pattern and responses to the question Do you have a cell phone??
Carole: نعم, عندي آي فون
Alisha: ""Yes, I have an iPhone.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Carole: (Slow) نعم, عندي آي فون
{pause}
Alisha: To say ""no"", in a simple way, just say:
Carole: لا, ليس عندي
Alisha: Which is like saying no, i don't have in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Carole: (Slowly) لا, ليس عندي
Alisha: And one more time at normal speed:
Carole: لا, ليس عندي
Alisha: Let's break it down from the beginning. The first word:
Carole: نعم
Alisha: meaning yes.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) نعم
Alisha: Now repeat
Carole: نعم
{Pause}
Alisha: And after that
Carole: عندي
Alisha: meaning i have.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) عندي
Alisha: Now repeat.
Carole: عندي
{Pause}
Alisha: And next
Carole: آي فون
Alisha: meaning iPhone.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) آي فون
Alisha: Now repeat.
Carole: آي فون
{Pause}
Alisha: Listen to the speaker say, Yes, I have an iPhone., and then repeat.
Carole: نعم, عندي آي فون
{pause}
Alisha: To expand on the pattern, replace iPhone with blackberry.
Carole: بلاك بري
Alisha: Blackberry
Carole: (slow) بلاك بري (regular) بلاك بري
Alisha: Listen to the phrase again, this time with blackberry
Carole: نعم, عندي بلاك بري
Alisha: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace iPhone. Say Yes, I have an blackberry.
{pause}
Carole: نعم, عندي بلاك بري
Alisha: To expand on the pattern, replace blackberry with Nokia.
Carole: نوكيا
Alisha: Nokia
Carole: (slow) نوكيا (regular) نوكيا
Alisha: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Nokia
Carole: نعم, عندي نوكيا
Alisha: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace Blackberry. Say Yes, I have a Nokia.
{pause}
Carole: نعم, عندي نوكيا
Alisha: To use a different phrase, replace Nokia with Samsung.
Carole: سامسونج
Alisha: Samsung
Carole: (slow) سامسونج (regular) سامسونج
Alisha: Listen to the phrase again, this time with Samsung
Carole: نعم, عندي سامسونج
Alisha: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace Nokia. Say Yes, I have a Samsung.
{pause}

I hope Levantine Arabic will be added to this program soon. Many people are interested in learning Lebanese, Syrian, Jordanian/Palestinian dialects as well. But for the most part I'm able to get the differences between levantine, Egyptian, and MSA, since I've studied them all.
