1. Introduction: Hi, I'm Terry is Italian and I'm on our vic Native Speaker. I will be teaching you in the scores the Egyptian cook with Arabic, where you would be able to initiate a conversation and Egyptian karaoke will. You will learn how toe speak in different situations, such as in a restaurant in a taxi, or just how to introduce yourself and speak to a stranger. I have been teaching Arabic for foreigner since 2000 and five, simply because I enjoy it. And then this course I would be giving you the basic skills off speaking Egyptian, colloquial Arabic. Before I start the course, I would like to explain to you the difference between the Egyptian colloquial Arabic and the classical standard are weak. So in all the Arabic countries, people read and understand and write the classical Arabic. Ah, it's usually used in writing books and magazines and the subtitles off the movies. Also, the Koran is reason in classical Arabic, but unfortunately, when it comes to the daily basic interactions and conversation, the colloquial Arabic is the one that is used and it's different from one country to another. So every each are big country has its own dialect off colloquial Arabic. So why the Egyptian clock with it happened that the Egyptian clock will is the simplest, colloquial Arabic on Also, Egypt is the Hollywood off the east. And so over the years it has been exporting to the Arabic countries, movies and songs. So all the Arabic countries are familiar with the Egyptian colloquial dialect, while the opposite is not happening. So I hope that this course would be useful for you if you really want to learn the basic Arabic conversation, how to start talking in Arabic and see you in the course. 2. Lesson 1: Welcome to the first lesson in this lesson you will learn about now. Owns now is an Arabic are divided into masculine and feminine. So you can actually repair toe something as a she or a he. For example, a book is a he A picture is a sheep, so even the objects have gender. In this lesson, we will learn some new words that you would probably use. And let's have an example with some masculine words. Book. Get there. Get there A book shared out. Share down ST Shed out, Baked, baked a house or a home show. Schobel Work showing. So all those are mosque. Um, of course you would ask, How can we differentiate between masculine noun on a feminine noun? I will tell you, but for now let's learn more about some feminine words. Sora picture sorta sound A clock or a watch Santa Half le half le party, Half le huh? Half le. And if you don't know why I'm writing Seven city, you can refer to the first bid you before we start toe note. How do I explain pronouncing the words? I guess, uh, I guess, huh? Holiday? I guess they do not have anything common between the feminine words. They all end with a So that's how you can differentiate between a muscular world and feminine work. Uh, the feminine words ends with off course. There are some exceptions, but, um, this you will learn on the way. But for now, this is the the basic rule. Let's have some more masculine words. Tallet student Call it Anna means I am Anna. Anna told him. I am a student, Khalib. If I want to say a female student, then Saliba, you add add and the liberal Call it caliber. More stuff more mpri Maza. You want to make it a feminine. It will be more suffer more suffer on a more stuff. Anna. Fallible murderess without reason. Feminine mood addressing Dalip Taliban Watts off more suffer, murderous mood a reason. Mood ears moodier. So, my dear, is the masculine to make it feminine mood era. Call it waza more that risk moody the liberal more suffer. Mother Teresa, would you if I want to point to something and say this is I would say that if the thing I'm pointing to is a muscular So, for example, that protect this is a book, and if I'm pointing to something that is feminine, then it's the the sore. So let's sum it up. The lesson was about the muscular announce and the feminine owns. Now you have, like a basic vocabulary off some new words that I hope it will be useful. And now for your homework, you need to make two sentences, the 1st 1 pointing to something masculine and the 2nd 1 pointing to something feminine. 3. Lesson 2: Welcome to the second lesson. I hope that the homework off the first lesson was not so difficult. And this Listen, we will learn how to question how can you ask What is this we learned in the last? Listen, have to say this is by saying that or the simply If you want to ask What is this? What is a a the What is this? And, uh, what is this in the decade tip? If you want to ask about a person who is this, then who is mean? I mean I mean the the mood Aris them with years One of the most important things is saying yes or no off course. So how can you say yes and Arabic? Are you uh, you, uh how can you say no look or le or less that attack, are you a decade it them with Aris, then mish murderous and mission is not. He is not a teacher. La Onda Mitch McGary. So are you. Now let's learn few very important words. How can you say a woman woman said men around getting a girl bent a boy while a sit bent? Well, one of the most important questions is asking someone How is he doing? How are you? And how are you in Arabic? Is is a yak Zou. The answer is of course, fine is why use quietus Anna quietus And usually we say also thank God which is Alhamdulillah El Hamda Lily on a quiet 100 in there is there yet and hum dilly quietus. So that is the second. Listen, I want you to make a few questions inspired from what we learned today. 4. Lesson 3: Welcome to the third lesson. I hope by now you started discovering that Arabic is not so difficult. So let's talk about the identification off a noun or an object. If I want to identify a certain world in English, you add that, for example, the car, the book in Arabic, it's end el que te in half le. Okay, let's have two important questions we usually want to ask about. Where is something and when It's something. So where in Arabic is fain and when is Empta? Let's have an example. Empta, L Half, Fla. Saying is, Get up to answer those questions. You need some more vocabulary. So let's say, for example, Hannah here. Hannah Hey, neck there. Hey, Nick Hannah Henick Bharara Outside butter, Goa Inside Goa border. Hannah Henick Okay, more words tomorrow Boca, Boca. Today in the harbour, in the heart or in the harder you can drop the N in the harder tomorrow. Boca today in the heart. So Empta in half le in half. Le Moco Empta in a Gaza in, I guess in the horrible, I guess A holiday feign in Welland. Let's say I want to say he is upstairs a well, a four full. And the opposite is that how that downstairs and while it for a while that finish Khattab, if get tapped for elk there, Penna.
