    This is such a nice supplementary resource to my studies! I'm doing Rosetta Stone, and although that moves at a way faster pace than a live class, your videos really fill in the blanks which you miss when you don't have a teacher. THANK YOU!

    No "to be" in present tense. That's like in Russian. eg you just say "I happy" not "I am happy."

    Maha, thank you for these lessons. I am finding them helpful. May I ask what dialect of Arabic are you speaking? I ask because I have heard Iraqi dialect expressed differently. For example "why?" would be "laysh?" Thank you so very much again.

    @tanzil90 I'll try to help you :p
    "limaza tadrusu' means "why do you learn/study" BUT "limaza adrusu" means " why do I learn/study
    so when you say "ana" you must say "adrusu" BUT when you say "anta" you must say "tadrusu"
    the question was limada tadrusu al lugha al arabiyya? so a friend is asking you "why do you learn/study arabic?
    you unswer must be "ana adrusu al lugha al arabiyya .. which means "I learn/study arabic ..
    I hope I did well :p

    @athkrudid Allah is the arabic word for God, not a personal name, it can be part of a name, but that deals with the meaning of the name. A lot of arabic words have the word God in it; for example, "alhamdulillah" (Muslim's say after sneezing, something good happens, or when hearing good things) means praise be to God (Allah), or Thank God.

    but if anyone want to get used to listen arabic i advice him to look for the sons that are sung in the classical arabic i mean the standar arabic because the great part of songs are sung in dialect which is greatly different from the arabic standars
    i can help by some nice songs in standard arabic like: سفيان الجزائري

    @mzmatza This is Fusha, the Modern Standard Arabic.
    All Arabic people that went to school are able, at least, to understand this kind of Arabic, because is the language of the press (newspaper, news on tv and so on) but in everyday life people from each Arab country speak it's own dialect.
    Lebanese is one of that dialects, but I think it's also one of the closer to Standard Arabic!
    That's right, Maha?
