What's with دُكتور? Isn't doctor 'طبيب'?

Both words are correct although we use more the word دُكتور when referring to a medical doctor or a person with a PhD. As for the word طبيب it is used in some Arab countries such as the Gulf or for example a vet in Arabic is طبيب بيطري and not دكتور بيطري in this case

Oh yeah one question, there's this thing I don't understand with endings of nouns. When do you use -in or -un at the end of the word.

I think it's called nominative and accusative cases.

Regarding this i think you are talking about "Al-tanween" it's usually if the word is indefinite adj or noun, then it will be nunated, but this really is related to arabic grammar and where the word is located in a sentence and what is it as. So what i suggest is as you go along, find examples and ask me about each one specifically so i can tell you why it is like this in this cae.

Ooh, thanks, that's so nice of you! I am so excited about the course and I find most things are well understood. However I have a problem with the pronunciation. When it's written شكرا οr ءزرا it is pronounced with an "n" at the end but there is no ن at the end of the word. Lots of other words have it too. And when spoken in sentences sounds like the ن comes after almost every word? Do I have a problem with destinguishing the sounds or is there a rule to learn about the pronunciation that can explain it? Thank you in advance!! شكرا لك
