The doctor? DOCTOR WHO!?!?!?!?

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Mohamed255870

This is pronounced EXACTLY the same in Egyptian slang arabic!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JerryHays1

Shouldn't the translation be "the female doctor"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/primus5er

I don't think so but who knows


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VeronicaBrinsden

why is it los doctors? Why don't they accept woman doctor as opposed to el doctor the male doctor/


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VeronicaBrinsden

Surely this is a lady doctor as opposed the el doctor, the male doctor?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dajane_.poppin12

NOTA: This is often said = Dra. so why do we have to put the doctor if it is doctora not doctor [that is in Spanish] that is my discussion

Like this comment if you find new words and you know them based off what they look like doctora is obvious
