can samahani be used on its own? e.g. when moving through a crowd?

"Samahani" is an arabic loanword used as "Excuse me." in English - you can use it when moving through a crowd, when asking for directions (or other things) or when apologizing for something (so "sorry" when it IS your fault).

The first five or so lessons don't have audio at all. The following have some recordings, from what I have seen
