Arabic Word of the Day 29#
*Bonjour! Today we're going to look at the numbers 0 - 10 (my bad, we should've done that earlier!). Let's start quickly as I've got a lot of things to do! :
*واحد = "Waah^id" = One
*إثنان = "Ithnaan" = Two - Some people will say "Ithnayn" as well so be aware of that as well
*ثلاثة = "Thalaatha" = Three - In English, we often tend to pronounce "th" strongly. Whenever there is a "ث", 'th' should be pronounce like that in "teeth", rather than that in... "that" (get it?)
*أربعة = "Arba3a" = Four
*خمسة = "Khamsa" = Five
*ستة = "Sita" = Six
*سبعة = "Sab3a" = Seven
*ثمانية = "Thamaaniya" = Eight
*تسعة = "Tis3a" = Nine
*(عشرة ) = "3ashara" = Ten
*And finally :
*صفر = "S^ifr" = Zero
*Now this is how they are written in Arabic:
٠ < = nope, that isn't a smudge on your screen, it is the number 0 (aka: a diamond shaped dot)
١ < = 1
٢ < = 2
٣ < = 3
٤ < = 4
٥ < = 5
٦ < = 6
٧ < = 7
٨ < = 8
٩ < = 9
١٠ < = 10 (aka: a 1 and a 0 together) - As you can see, it is written in the same order: so units and tens and all that are in the same order (fairly easy).
*Now to the activity: Copy those down a hundred times each. I'm serious stop looking at me like that. [looking at Andres who's already done 3/4 while I'm typing this]... Lol you don't have to but that would be good practice. Anyways they're not even that complex [looking at Chinese alphabet] you can't even complain!
*Oh yeah also if you can't remember these^ then it's ok. Nowadays, it is becoming less common, though it is still used! Some people just use the (latin? I think it's called) numerical system, that you obviously know it goes like: 1, 2, 5, 8... yeah yeah that's the one! ;p But attempt it anyways!
*Before and Indian attacks me, I think these were taken from the Indians AGES ago... ;P So if you're Indian, you're one step ahead!
*Tomorrow we'll go through the rest of the numbers if I can make it (because I have lots of revision to do!) Hopefully I can cus I'm the no1 procrastinator ;)
*Thanks for Reading! Any Qs, Proof reading, Suggestions, Possible Improvements, please comment below! Have a Lovely Afternoon! Aaah it's WARM TODAY!!! :D MIRACLE! JK
Thank you, I am in the process of copying down the numbers right now, 9# and 1# are easy to remember LOL.
Enjoy the warm weather!
Yep Lol I found 9 and 1 easy to remember when I was learning this. I also found 0 and 5 easy. I mainly got mixed up with 6,7 and 8. I dunno just 6 looks like a 7 and 7 and 8 are confusing.
Yeah I will while I can! [shoving head into revision book] "yeah I will" [Lol "revising right now am I?"] XD
Huh! No fair I still have school you see... It's not like I waste my own holidays "revising" or something. Wait is it your summer holidays already?!! What?! My summer holiday begins on the 23rd (I think) of July!! :O
Well OBVIOUSLY I still have to go school in Ramadan cus I live in England! Of course they only give a holiday in Christmas and Easter but never on Ramadan or Eid so... :'( school it is! I have PE as well @_@ And I've got my worst teacher tomorrow and double English X_X could it get any worse? :'o
WHAT?!! HAHA it's my summer holiday!! what a poor cute mushroom =( we studied a week on Ramadan but just for 5 hours a day... I was suffering!! now I thank God HAHA! who is your worst teacher? for me she was the English one -_- it may get worse, I mean you'll have a plus English class or something....
5 hours!! What?! I study from 8am till 3pm!! Ha luckily next week is a week off cus it's half - term (I dunno if you have that in Algeria). But it's only a week! :'( English is my worst subject, but my English teacher is nice! My worst teacher is my Science teacher! I have 2 science teachers; one is nice and one is UGH! Anyways, I have the annoying one for a double lesson on Wednesdays only (thank god). But! My nice teacher is leaving on maternity leave so we're going to have that UGH everyday!!! And I have Science for a double lesson everyday except for Monday which I have one lesson on! (so many science lessons!) @_@ It can't get worse than that!
soooo...another discussion, what should I do for my French post? I ran out of ideas! By the way still rain there? Probably still raining...........sigh feel bad for you...AndresGarner to you still go to school, or are you like old like 20. Because you still write like a young person who uses Lol, xD and other faces
Edit:Why do have so many dislikes! I am upvoting!
He's an adult. It's obvious, I can tell an adult from a mile away. The words they use are long and the structure of their speech which I am analysing due to the drainage which English does to me everyday. < XD I'm trying to use long words but I'm kinda failing lol I don't even know if that even makes sense! Anyways, to the point, he's not a kid, but he's not old ; probably between 20 and 30...
ps: I knew you were a kid XD only I didn't think you were THAT small :3 JK
