it's like the arabic "Merhaba"= "مرحبا" :)
I am going to say the same.
haha true .. :D
Merhaba - Hello
Selam - Hi
Is it true that it's also correct to pronounce this word with voiceless 'h' [meraba]?
many people do that in daily speech, yes
Just as a nitpick, h is voiceless. You mean silent (i.e. not said at all)
I am from turkiy
does turkish have semivowels (I think that's what they are called). by semivowel I mean "er" "ir" "or" "ur" in English where you wouldn't say "eh-r" but rather a sort of different sound that is like the Nordic "ø"
Nope, vowels keep there full sound. This is actually a common mistake made by English speakers while speaking Turkish. Turks can't understand it when we say "Bursa" :D
Why are there no moduls in this course teaching the words for body parts, ie. Hands, face, arms,legs etc?
I wrote 'Hello' but I got it wrong. It said the answer was 'Hello!' wtf
I always hear it as [meraba] with a silent |h|, but here it's different from movies and TV shows.
