Hey! Thank you so much for offering your help! I have a question for you so...!

I know that you can say "سلام" to say "Hi". But I feel that it's something quite informal, right? Or could you say it in every situation? Also, I feel a bit confused by the wide ways to say hello in Arabic. Finally, which is the expression the more used every day?

Thank you in advance for your help !!

Hello, in the beginning i just wanna tell u that in arabic there are many different accents so maybe u will find the same word changing from a country to others

1- yes ( سلام ) isn't formal and you can say (As Salamu Alaikum - السلام عليكم ) instead of it and i prefer السلام عليكم more than سلام because when u want to say bye u will say سلام

so for (Hi) say ( السلام عليكم ) and for ( BYE ) say ( سلام )

NOTE : Goodbye = مع السلامه

2- you can say السلام عليكم in every situation and in every country.

3- as i told u there are many accents, so there are many ways to say hello for Formal way is ( Merhaba - مرحبا ) for Informal way there are many like

( ahlan - اهلا ) , ( Hi - هاي ) , ( As Salamu Alaikum - السلام عليكم ) and for more ways to say hello check this videos

Isn't هاي the English hi? Or is there an Arabic expression I don't know?


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

Yes it’s, sorry I wrote it Hai by mistake, I edited it

NOTE: ( Hi-هاي ) is more common in Egypt, so if u were in Egypt u can use it freely.

Hi! Thanks for offering your help :) There is a guy from Egypt coming to my church (French and Spanish speaking church). He knows a bit of Italian, but no French, Spanish or English. I would love to be able to make him feel welcome, and what better way than to do it in his mother tongue? I read the thread about how to say Hello... how would you say "welcome!"? - I googled it, but the automatic voice on google translator doesn't pronounce the letters the same way as they teach us here on Duolingo... So I might as well ask a native! Thanks in advance!

Hi! I have a question about verb conjugation. The following was explained to me:

To get the verb stem you take the three letters and put an ُ in the middle letter. For example فهم becomes فهُم.

To get the I (أنا) from, you should add an أ in front of it and an ُ at the last letter. So فهُم becomes انا أفهُمُ, but this does not seems right, because verb conjugator says it should be أنا فهَمُ. Am I missing something here?


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

Hi.. yeah maybe it just a little bit complicated for you at the beginning but, you should add the letter أ when u use ( i - أنا ) for example:

I play - أنا ألعَبُ

I drink - أنا أشرَبُ

And this links may help you for understand the rules bc it’s so long to explain it here.
