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 ""Are you hungry?"" In Arabic this is
Carole: هل أنت جائع؟
Alisha: The first word in the question is
Carole: هل
Alisha: ""meaning are"" 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: أنت
Alisha: meaning you.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) أنت
Alisha: Now repeat.
Carole: أنت
{Pause}
Alisha: Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Carole: هل أنت
{pause}
Alisha: And after that
Carole: جائع
Alisha: meaning hungry.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) جائع
Alisha: Now repeat.
Carole: جائع
{Pause}
Alisha: Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Carole: هل أنت جائع؟
{pause}
★ Note that this is how you ask “Are you hungry?” if you are asking a male person. If you are asking a female person, you would say:
Carole: هل أنت جائعة؟
Alisha: Please repeat.
Carole: هل أنت جائعة؟
{pause}
Alisha: Master the following pattern and responses to the question Are you hungry??
Carole: نعم, قليلا
Alisha: ""Yes, I'm a little hungry.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Carole: (Slow) نعم, قليلا
{pause}
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: قليلا
Alisha: meaning (a) little.
Carole: (Slow, by syllable) قليلا
Alisha: Now repeat.
Carole: قليلا
{Pause}
Alisha: Listen to the speaker say, Yes, I'm a little hungry., and then repeat.
Carole: نعم, قليلا
{pause}
Alisha: To use a different phrase, replace a little with extremely.
Carole: كثيرا
Alisha: extremely
Carole: (slow) كثيرا (regular) كثيرا
Alisha: Listen to the phrase again, this time with extremely
Carole: نعم, كثيرا
Alisha: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace a little. Say Yes, I'm extremely hungry.
{pause}
Carole: نعم, كثيرا
Alisha: To make another phrase, replace extremely with very.
Carole: جداَ
Alisha: very
Carole: (slow) جداَ (regular) جداَ
Alisha: Listen to the phrase again, this time with very
Carole: نعم, جداَ
Alisha: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace extremely. Say Yes, I'm very hungry.
{pause}
Carole: نعم, جداَ
Alisha: To expand on the pattern, replace very with not at all.
Carole: أبداَ
Alisha: not at all
Carole: (slow) أبداَ (regular) أبداَ
Alisha: Listen to the phrase again, this time with not at all
Carole: لا, أبداَ
Alisha: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace very, and change Yes to No. Say No, I'm not hungry at all.
{pause}
Carole: لا, أبداَ
