Arabic Course lesson 1
It has been quite a long time, I didn’t put up new articles. Very busy writing up my Arabic book plus audios. I figured out that it is about time for me to share some knowledge to this community. I hope the knowledge impart even though it is small, it does make a big difference. the book is about 290 pages, eh really solid, for basic and beginners. it is formatted according to the CERF standards. you will find lots of dialogues and practical writing.
This is some feedback from my students:
Shahzeb ali Rathore: “It is a useful resource for anyone wishing to learn the language, It is easy to follow, and allows one to comprehend an otherwise complex, yet beautiful, lingual. If followed religiously, it is possible to grasp the basics of Arabic in less than three months.

Ren YuanQz: “I think this class has given me some sense of Arabic, although I am still confused with many things about Arabic. It seems that it has opened another door for me to understand another language. The teacher has great energy to teach us more, but I have just received only a small part of it. Thanks for the teacher’s strive and I would learn the language in my best effort”.

now the first lesson:
Introducing yourself needs basic vocabularies and most importantly be able to know the gender forms for masculine (1) and feminine noun (2) to introduce yourself (3) basic phrase to say Hi! (marhaba) or my name is (ism-e) or to know a person origins just say; where are you from? (min ayna anta?) Shaking hands is part of the culture but only male shakes the male hands and do not shake hands with ladies please. Giving a smile (ebtasem) is encourage.
masculine in Arabic ( muzak-ar) and feminine (muan-nas)
to say my name: (ism-e) then your given name
to say ‘what’s your name’: mas-smuk? for male
if you are saying to a female you have to say: mas-muki? what’s your name(f)?
Here are some basic pronouns:
‘I’ means (ana) can me use for male/female
‘You’ means (anta) male
‘you(f)’ means (anti)
‘He’ means (Huwa)
‘She’ means (Heya)
To greet someone:
We are going to learn to say: ‘How are you?’
some practical phrase: How are you(m)? Kayfa haluka? ‘ka‘ means you(male) which replace the pronoun (anta). whereas ‘How are you(f)? kayfa haluki? the ‘ki‘ means you(female) replaces the pronoun (anti).
I think you did learn something, please practice these phrases. Just learn this and follow up with this free course and perhaps later on I will give you guys a link to my you tube lessons.
