Arabic Word of the Day 40#

*Helló! Today we're going to learn about how to express opinions, and I purposefully chose the last few topics we did which are food, sports, music and films because they are easy to express opinions on. So let's begin:

*أحب = "Uh^ib" = I Like/ I Love

*لا أحب = "Laa uh^ib" = I don't like/love

*أعشق = "A3shaq" = I adore

*أكره = "Akrah" = I hate - Don't forget to pronounce the 'h'

*أنا أحب .... كثيرا = "Anaa uh^ib .... katheeran" = I really like .... / I like .... a lot

*أفضل = "Ufad^il" = I prefer

*أفضل ... على = "Ufad^il ... 3ala ..." = I prefer ... over ...

*لان = "Li'an'na" = Because

*أما = "Am'maa" = As for/ Whereas

*So if we were to say our opinion we might need to know some adjectives we could use to describe them if we're going to use "because":

*مخيفة = "Mukheefa" = Scary

*مضحكة = "Mud^h^ika" = Funny

*مملة = “Mumila” = Boring

*مثيرة للإهتمام = “Mutheera lil’ihtimaam” = Interesting

*ممتعة = “Mumti3a” = Fun/ Enjoyable

*مؤثرة = “Mu’athira” = Emotional/ Moving

*مفيدة = “Mufeeda” = Useful

*مفيدة للصحة = “Mufeeda lil’sah^a” = Useful for your health/well-being (Good for your health/well-being)

*سهلة = “Sahla” = Easy – Make sure you pronounce the ‘h’

*صعبة = “S^a3ba” = Difficult

*لذيذة = “Latheetha” = Delicious/ Tasty

*ليست لذيذة = “Laysat latheetha” = Isn’t delicious/tasty – We’ll go through negatives at some point

*مقززة = “Muq^aziza” = Disgusting

*صاخبة = “S^aakhiba” = Noisy/ Loud

هادئة = “Haadi’a” = Calm/Quiet جميلة = “Jameela” = Beautiful/Nice

*Ok let’s start a sentence! Here’s a few examples to help you:

*أفضل السمك على الدجاج = “Ufad^il alsamak 3ala aldajaaj” = I prefer fish over chicken

*لا أحب أفلام الرعب لأن أفلام الرعب مخيفة = “Laa uh^ib aflaam alru3b li’ana aflaam alru3b mukheefa” = I don’t like horror movies because horror movies are scary.

*Now we could say “I don’t like horror movies because they are scary”, but that will bring in more complicated grammatical rules, and I don’t want to confuse you YET ;p so we’ll stick to repeating the noun like robots!

*أنا أحب الرياضة كثيرا لأن الرياضة ممتعة و مفيدة للصحة = “Anaa uh^ib alriyaad^a katheeran li’ana alriyaad^a mumti3a wa mufeeda lils^ah^a” = I really like sports because sports are fun and good for your health

*أفضل موسيقى الراب على موسيقى البوب = “Ufad^il moosiqa alraab 3ala moosiqa albob” = I prefer rap music over pop music

*Thanks for Reading! Any Qs, Proof-reading, Suggestions, Improvements (Gimme your opinion!), please comment below! Have a NICE Day! ;D

*PS if you like mushrooms, read this aloud: لا أحب الفطر = “Laa uh^ib alfut^r” = (translate it for me) XD

This post is mufeed (useful) :)

June 2, 2019

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

"mufeed" is better, in Arabic "post" is "منشور" and it is M not F, so we do not add the "ة"

June 2, 2019

Ok, thank you sousou. (I’m correcting that right now.)

June 3, 2019

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

The wedding went wonderful (especially being that the whole playlist was changed 2 weeks before) I was on the violin, a younger lady I know was playing the piano, and her sis. was on the flute.

June 3, 2019

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

WOW! I wish I was there :,(

June 3, 2019

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

Aah finally my co-worker has stopped chasing me and started doing her job! XD JK Thanks Sousou! took the words out of my mouth! ;p

June 3, 2019

June 3, 2019

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

didn't notice ^^

June 2, 2019

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

To look more fluence, it's good to pronounce it like: "Anaa uh^ibu rriyadata katheeran li'anaha mumti3aton wa mufeedaton liss^ih^a"... right?

Nice! let's say: "أنا أفضل الفطر على البط، لكن لا فرق مع ساسي"

June 2, 2019

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

Yeah but I haven't gone through that yet! Stop racing ahead CO! ;p JK ... Anyways why are you asking me? you're the Arab here! :3

No let's not say that! ;p Hey!! lol now everyone's calling me Sassy... Do you actually think my real name would be Sassy? That'd be funny though some people call me that everyday :D Do ppl cal you Sousou or something? :o

June 3, 2019

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

LOL ok!

why? hh that's strange, I think you are Amazigh, so I considered it as your real name XD (don't laugh at me, I want be that stupid just when I eat your head)

you mean in real life?

June 3, 2019

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

No don't worry you're not THAT stupid ;p My surname is close to Sassy [really close!] that's where I got the nickname from :) Obviously the second I stepped into school with a surname too close to a silly English word, I had to get a nickname XD Now that's my official name, I just enter a classroom and like a celebrity everyone turns around and shouts "SASSY!" so yeah there's some background info to my name ;3

I am Amazigh but most Amazighs actually have Arabic names so :) and I do have an Arabic name (not a popular one really) and you know, that Arabic name coincidentally ALSO sounds like another bunch of silly English words so yeah, I guess there's a million ways to make fun of me and whenever my name comes in the register, there's very few teachers that get it right [sigh] ;p

Yeah I meant in real life. Like is that your nickname? Just like mine is? :D

June 3, 2019

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

This is not my real of course, to be honest this is the nickname of my cousin B3

LOL my real name is silly too ^^

June 3, 2019

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

Eid's a long time away and you're already preparing? My family always go for takeaway on Eid. That's probably why I gain weight.xp

June 2, 2019

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

Hey? Helooo? Eid? As in the one that comes the day after the end of Ramadan? :o As in either Tue or Wed (chance to miss school! :D) ... Do you remember? :o

I know but that's still a long way away.

June 2, 2019

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

So you call 1 or 2 days a long way? :o Weird :L

June 2, 2019

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

I know but Eid just seems out of reach. What is wrong with me these days?

Hey, you going back to school tomorrow?

June 2, 2019

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

Yup I am! :( Got a Computer Science test XP I'm DEAD. I should be revising right now... BUT meh I'm just going to have to scrape it!

June 2, 2019

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

Computer Science.... We scrapped that last year.

Test... You are going to ace it. I leave my revision to the morning of the test and pass with flying colours so you'll do great.

Edit: Heyyyyyyyyy. You're doing your GCSEs aren't you?

June 2, 2019

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

Yeah I am doing GCSE ;p Wait have you picked your subjects?! Mmm I think it's too late for me to advise you but I'll tell you anyways: DON'T pick Art or Computer Science you'll be committing suicide! ;p If you have already then... Good Luck I'm dying with you! And it's such a SHAME we don't get to opt out English [sigh] :o

Anyways, Computer Science is easy in yr8, wait till you go past that @_@

Edit: Oh and also, Luckily, the test date got furthered for next week [phew] :D

June 3, 2019

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

My school gave us some options for our GCSEs. They're like you HAVE to pick between art and french. I,obviously being smarter than everyone else went for french but the majority chose art and now I'm so dead. I'm so bad at art.

How did your Computer Science test go?

June 3, 2019

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

Everyone begged to have it next week instead (and cus my teacher is nice) he agreed ;p Aah one extra week to relax hmm I mean revise of course ;p
