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: Listen to the phrase again, this time with 3 pounds
Carole: بثلاث جنيهات
Alisha: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace 2 pounds. Say It's 3 pounds.
