This is the first time I understand a sentence just by hearing (and only once)! I guess that means progress. :-)
Kinda confused here. Is this Formal Arabic or a dialect? If I were to translate it from Formal Arabic, I would write: At Joudy's is new house (something like this) Can someone clarify?
Duolingo course is really a scramble of both. To add pepper to the wound, the audio recordings are not correct in like 50% of times (they depend on text-to-speech machine which is not standardized for Arabic).
This said, the word عند does mean (at) and (has). However, there is another word which means (has) in Arabic but I didn't see Duolingo using it so far, and that is لدى (ladá).
I'm a bit confused by how is written/pronounced بَيْت . I get that the diacritic ْ means (mute), but how can the vowel ي be mute?
