    EZ Arabic Course With transliteration

    Report bad ads?

    For those of you who find it hard to read arabic, here are the lessons with english transliteration:

    Week 1
    This week’s vocabulary:

    (Subject Pronouns
    I - أنا (ana) (the first a is pronounced like the a in America)
    You (male) - أنتَ (anta)
    You (female) – أنتِ (anti)

    Girl - بنت (bint)
    Boy - ولد (walad)
    House - بيت (bait)
    This - هذا (haaza)

    Sentences:

    In Arabic there are two kind of sentences, those that start with a noun called جملة إسمية (jumla ismia – nominal sentences) and those that start with a verb called جملة فعلية (jumla fi’aliya – verbal sentences) . The following are examples of the first kind, جملة إسمية :

    The following are examples of الجملة الإسمية :

    I am a girl – ٌ أنا بنت ana bintun

    You are a boy - ٌ أنت ولد anta waladun

    This is a house – هذا بيت ٌ haza baitun

    This is my house – هذا بيتيhaza baiti

    This is your house – هذا بيتك haza baituk
    (note: the ending tanwin ٌ on the last word in a sentence is not pronounced when you come to a stop. So أنا بنتٌ is pronounced as ana bint.)

    As can be seen from the last two sentences, to show possession, the possessive pronoun is attached to the noun.

    Some possessive pronouns:
    My – بيتي- ي baiti
    Your - بيتك- ك baituk
    His - ه بيته- baituhu
    Her – بيتها- ها baituha

    ********************************
    Sentences of common usage:
    What is your name? ما اِسمُك؟ Ma ismuk? (pronounced masmuk)
    My name is … اِسْمي .... Ismi ….
    **************************** *****


    Practice Tip: Use your English – Arabic Dictionary to get more words and make sentences of your own similar to the ones in this lesson. For example, هذا قلمك – This is your pen. أنتَ طالبٌ - you are a student.

    Re: EZ Arabic Course With transliteration

    Week 2:

    This Weeks Vocabulary:

    This – هذا haza
    This (feminine) - هذِه ِ hazihi
    That - ذلِك َ zaalika (also spelled as dhalika)
    That (feminine) - تلك tilka
    House - بَيْت bait
    Car - سَيَّارَة sayyaara
    City - مَدِيْنة madina
    Old - قَدِيْم qadeem
    Modern - مُتقدِّم motaqadim

    Possessive pronouns: In Arabic the possessive pronoun is attached to the end of the noun.

    My –بيتي- ي baiti

    Your (masculine singular) - بيتك- كَ baituka

    Your (feminine singular) - بيتكِ- كِ biatuki

    Our - بيتنا- نا baitunaa

    Sentences:

    This is my house. هذا بيتي. Haza baiti

    This is his car. هذه سيارته hazihee sayyaaratuhu

    That is your house. ذلك بيتك. Zalika baituk

    That is her car. تلك سيارتها tilka sayyaaratuhaa

    More sentences using the هذا , هذه and adjectives:

    This flower is beautiful. هذه وردةُ جميلةٌ hazihee wardatun jameelatun

    That flower is beautiful تلكَ وردةٌ جميلةٌ. Tilka wardatun jameelatun

    This city is old. هذه مدينة قديمة. Hazihee madinatun qadeematun

    The city I live in is modern. المدينة التي أسكنُ فيها مُتَقَدِّمَة ٌ. Almadinatu alati askuno feeha motaqadimatun

    Note: during reading the vowel on the last letter of a word is only pronounced if there are other words following it. so at the end of a sentence, the ending vowel isn’t pronounced. For example, you would read the first sentence as تلكَ وردةٌ جميلةٌ tilka wardatun jameela, pronouncing the tanwin at the end of وردةٌ but not at the end of جميلةٌ. However, if you only say تلكَ وردةٌ then you pronounce it as tilka warda.

    ********************************
    Sentences of common usage:

    How are you? كيف حالك؟ kaifa haaluk?

    Alhamdulillah I am well. ألحمد لله أنا بخير Alhamdullilah ana bi khair.

    **************************** *****


    Practice Tip: make sentences using possessive pronouns and descriptive adjectives.

    Week 3 – Some Verbal Sentences

    This week’s Vocabulary:
    To - إلى ilaa
    He – هُو howa
    She - هِيَّ hiya
    Where - أيْنَ aina
    Went - ذهَبَ zahaba
    To be going - ذاهِبٌ zahibun
    City - مَدِيْنة madinatun

    Sentences:
    He is a boy. هو ولدٌ howa waladun
    She is a girl. هي بنتٌ hiya bintun

    I am going. أنا ذاهبٌ ana zahibun
    Where did the boy go? أين ذهَبَ الوَلَدُ؟ aina zahaba alwalad
    He went to his house. هو ذهب إلى بَيْتِهِ howa zahaba ilaa baitihi
    The boy went to his house. الولدُ ذَهَبَ إلى بَيْتِهِ. Alwaladu zahaba ilaa baitihi

    The following are examples of sentences that start with a verb, known as جملة فعلية
    The boy went. ذهب الولد zahaba alwaladu
    The girl went. ذهبتْ البنت zahabat albintu
    The boy studied. دَرَسَ الولد darasa alwaladu
    The girl studied. دَرَسَتْ البنت. Darasat albintu

    The boy said, I don’t want to study. قال الولدُ أنا لا أريد أنْ أدرسَ qala alwaladu ana laa oreedo un adrosa
    The girl said, I don’t want to study. قالَتْ البنتُ أنا لا أريدُ أنْ أدرسَ qalat albintu anaa laa oreedo un adrosa

    Note that the subject of the sentence contains a damma on the last letter when it is singular.
    You can make more complex sentences by adding a prepositional phrase to the جملة الفعلية :
    The boy went to his house. ذهبَ الولدُ إلى بيته. Zahaba alwaladu ilaa baitihi
    The girl went to her house. ذهبتْ البنتُ إلى بيتها zahabat albintu ilaa baitihi

    The boy studied in the school. درس الولد في المدرسةِ darasa alwaladu fee almadrasati
    The girl studied in the school. دَرَسَتْ البنت في المدرسةِ darasat albintu fee almadrasati

    As you can see from the examples, you can write the same sentence starting with a verb or a noun. ذهب الولدُ إلى المدرسةِ. الولدُ ذهبَ إلى المدرسةِ.


    *******************************
    Sentences of Common Usage:
    Where are you from? من أين أنت؟ or أنت من أين؟ anta min ain? Anti min ain?
    I am from (country name). أنا من ... ana min ...
    Where do you live? أين تسكن aina taskun?
    I live in … … . أسكنُ في ... askuno fee …
    I live in … City. أسكنُ في مدينة .... askuno fee madinato ...
    Where are you? أيْنَ أنْت؟ aina anta? Aina anti
    I am at school.أنا في المَدْرَسَةِ ana fee almadrasati
    I am at the market. أنا في السُوق ana fee assouq.
    I am at home. أنا في البَيْتِ ana fee albaiti.

    Practice tip: write where you went recently.

    Re: EZ Arabic Course With transliteration

    Week 4
    This week’s vocabulary:
    Big كَبيْر kabeer
    School مَدْرَسَة madrasa
    Student (male) طالب - taalib
    Student (female) طالبة - taaliba
    Studied – دَرَسَ darasa
    Studies - يَدْرُسُ yadrasu
    Cat - قِطَّة qitta
    Near - قَرِيْب qareeb

    To make simple sentences starting with nouns (الجملة الإسمية ) , you can use noun + a word that tells more about the noun, called khabar خبر in Arabic. The خبر can be an adjective, a verb phrase, a noun phrase, a prepositional phrase, etc.
    Adjective as خبر :
    The house is big. البيتُ كبيرٌ albaito kabeerun
    The school is far. ٌ المدرسة ُ بعيدة almadrasatu ba’eedatun
    My house is near. بيتي قَرِيب baiti qareebun

    (Note: In Arabic, if a noun is at the beginning of a sentence it is normally a proper noun (that is, it contains ال ). A sentence may start with a preposition, for example: ٌ في البيت قطة (fee albaiti qittatun) A cat is in the house. If the subject is a common noun, it should be preceded by the predicate, as in the above sentence.
    (Note: in the above sentence : ٌ في البيت قطة the tanwin at the end of the last word in the sentence is not pronounced when you come to a stop. So the sentence would be pronounced as Fee albaiti qitta )

    If the subject of a sentence is feminine, the adjective is also feminine.
    The (female) student is intelligent. الطالبة زكية at-taalibatu zakkiyatun
    The (male) student is intelligent. الطالب زكيٌ at-taalibu zakkiyun
    Practice tip: make sentences to describe something or someone.

    Verb phrase as خبر :
    He is studying هو يدرس. Howa yadrasu
    He studied . هو درسَ howa darasa

    Practice tip: make sentences to tell what someone did or is doing.

    Noun as خبر:
    I am a student. أنا طالبٌ ana taalibun
    I am a (female) student. أنا طالبةٌ ana taalibatun
    The man is a teacher. الرجلُ مُدَرِّسٌ ar-rajulo modarrisun
    The girl is a student. البنتُ طالبة ٌ. Albinto taalibatun

    Prepositional phrase as خبر :
    The cat is in the garden. القطةُ في الحَدِيقةِ al qittatu fee alhadeeqati
    The (female) students are in the class. الطالباتُ في الصفِ at-taalibato fee assafi
    The boy is in his house. الولدُ في بيتِه alwaladu fee baitihi
    I am in my room. أنا في غرفتِي ana fee ghorfatee
    A man is in the car. في السيارةِ رجلٌ fee assayyaarati rajolun

    Practice tip: make sentences to tell where something is.

    Other forms of خبر :
    I am going. أنا ذاهبٌ ana zaahibun
    He has studied. هو دارس howa daarisun


    Note: if the subject is feminine, then the verb will also be feminine:
    She is studying. . هي تدرس heeya tadrasu
    She studied. . هيَّ دَرَسَتْ heeya darasat

    Note: when a pronoun is attached to a noun, the noun doesn’t contain ال .
    الولدَ في البيتِ alwaladu fee albaiti
    الولدَ في بيته alwaladu fee baitihee
    Practice tip: Make nominal sentences( الجملة الإسمية ) using different kinds of خبر . you can use nouns or pronouns. Use your English to Arabic dictionary to get nouns, verbs and adjectives.

    **********************
    Common usage:
    Where would you like to go? أين تريد أن تذهبَ ؟ aina toreed un tazhab
    I want to go to the market. أريدُ أن أذهبَ إلى السوق. Oreedo un azhaba ilasouq (ila assouq).
    Where are you going? أين تذهب؟ aina tazhab
    I am going to the market. أذهبُ إلى السوق. Azhabo ilasouq

    Supplement - Prepositions in sentences
    This week’s vocabulary:
    Prepositions:
    On - على – a’laa
    In - في - fee
    Under - تحت - taht
    To - إلى - ilaa
    From - من - min

    Table - طاولة – tawila (tawilatun)
    Bag - حقيبة – haqeeba (haqeebatun)
    Cat - قطة – qita (qitatun)
    Bed - سرير - sareer (sareerun)

    You already learned to use prepositions in الجملة الفعلية . You can also use them in الجملة الإسمية , as follows:
    الولدُ في البيت ِ. The boy is in the house. – alwalado fee albaiti
    القطة ُ على الطاولة ِ. The cat is on the table. – alqitato alaa attawilati
    الحقيبة ُ تحت السرير ِ. The bag is under the bed. – alhaqeebato taht assareeri

    The boy is going to his house - الولدُ يذهبُ إلى بيتِه – alwalado yazhabo ilaa baitihee
    The boy went to his house. - الولد ذهبَ إلى بيته – alwalado zahaba ilaa baitihee
    The boy is going to his house – الولدُ ذاهِبٌ إلى بيتِه - alwalado zahibun ilaa baitihee

    Note that the singular noun following the preposition contains a kasra ( ِ ) on the last letter.


    Prepositions can also be placed at the beginning of a sentence, mainly if the subject of the sentence is not a proper noun.
    في البيت ِ ولد ٌ A boy is in the house. (Literally, in the house is a boy.) – fee albaiti waladun
    على الكرسية ِ حقيبة ٌ A bag is on the chair. – alaa alkursiyyati haqeebatun
    تحت الشجرِ قطة ٌ A cat is under the tree. – that alshajari qitatun

    Note that in Arabic, a common noun usually contains tanwin ( ً , ٌ , ٍ ) on the last letter, while a proper noun contains only one vowel ( َ , ُ , ِ ).

    Practice Tip: make sentences using prepositions.

    Week 5 - Showing Possession in Arabic

    Two ways to show possession in Arabic are: By using possessive pronouns (which are attached to the noun) and by using the word ل (which means of) + pronoun or noun.
    Some examples:
    Whose لِمَنْ - limun - (Whose book is this? لمن هذا الكتاب؟ ) – limun haza alkitabo
    Mine لي - lee - (This book is mine. هذا كتاب لي. ) – haza kitaabun lee
    Ours لنا - lanaa - (This house is ours. هذا البيت لنا. ) – haza albaito lanaa -
    Yours masculine singular لكَ - laka - (It is yours. هو لَكَ ) – huwa laka
    Yours (feminine singular) لك ِ - laki - (the book is yours. الكتابُ لك ِ ) – alkitabo laki
    Yours (plural) لكمْ -lakum - (The house is yours. البيتُ لكُمْ ) – albaito lakum
    His له - lahoo - (The book is his. الكتاب له ) – alkitabo lahoo
    Hers لها - lahaa - (the bag is hers. الحقيبة لها ) – alhaqeebato lahaa

    To you be your way and to me, mine.
    لكم دينكم و لي الدين – lakum deenokum waliyya aldeen
    For you your deeds, and for us our deeds.
    لكم أعمالكم و لنا أعمالنا. – lakum a’maalokum wa lanaa a’maalonaa

    The second way is to use possessive pronouns. Possessive pronouns are attached to the end of the noun.
    Some possessive pronouns are:
    My ي - your (masculine) كَ - your (feminine) كِ - your (plural) كم - his ه - hers ها - theirsهم - theirs (feminine) هن -
    (note: some of these are the same as subject pronouns and some are the same as object pronouns.)

    Some examples are as follows: (note that the pronoun at the end is the possessive pronoun.)
    My book كتابي - kitaabee
    Your bookكتابك - kitaaboka
    His book كتابه - kitaabohoo
    Her book كتابها - kitaabohaa
    Their bookكتابهم - kitaabohum
    Their (feminine) bookكتابهن - kitaabohunna
    Their (dual) book كتابهما - kitaabohumaa

    Sentences using possessive pronouns:
    Whose house is this? لِمَنْ هذا البيت؟ - limun haza albait
    This is my house. هذا بيتي. – haza baitee
    It is her house. إنّه بيتها – innahoo baitohaa
    That is my bag. تلك حقيبتي. – tilka haqeebatee
    The boys (or the children) went to their houses. الأولاد ذهبوا إلى بيوتهم. – alawlaado zababoo ilaa buyootihim

    A third way to show possession is to write the owner’s name after the possessed item’s name, with a kasra on the last letter of the second noun. The first noun contains the vowel appropriate for its position in the sentence.
    The boy’s chair . كُرْسيةُ ولدٍ – kursiyyato waladin
    The boy’s chair is big. كرسيةُ الولدِ كبيرةٌ – kursiyyatu alwaladi kabeeratun
    The boy’s chair broke. كسر كرسيةُ الولدِ – kasara kursiyyato alwaladi
    I sat on the boy’s chair. جلسْتُ على كرسيةِ الولدِ - jalasto alaa kursiyyati alwaladi
    I bought the boy’s chair. أشْتريتُ كُرْسيةَ الولدِ – ashtaraito kursiyyata alwaladi
    Note that the first noun (the possessed item مضاف ) contains a vowel appropriate for its position in the sentence, that is, whether it is the subject, the object, etc. The second noun (the possessor, مضاف إليه ) contains a kasra on the last letter. (This is equivalent to using an apostrophe + s ( ‘s ) to show possession in English.) As you can see from the above examples, when the singular noun is the subject of the sentence, it contains a damma on the last letter. When it is an object, it contains a fathha on the last letter. And when it follows a preposition, it contains a kasra on the last letter.
    More examples:
    حقيبةُ البناتِ – haqeebato albanati
    علبة كبريت- ‘ulbato kibreeti
    عطلة الصيفِ – ‘utlato assaifi
    مدرسون المدرسةِ – modarisoon almadrasati
    كتب الطلابِ – kotobo attolaabi
    سيارات المدرسين – sayyaaraato almodariseen

    Note: possession doesn’t have to mean that the item is owned by someone.
    For example in the following sentence, the relationship between the two words is that of possession, but one doesn’t own the other, just as in English, using an apostrophe + s doesn’t necessarily mean someone owns something:
    The company’s director. مدير الشركةِ – mudeer asharikati
    Our class. صفنا - saffonaa
    My God. إلهي - ilaahee
    His sister. أخته - ukhuhoo
    Your (female) teacher. مدرستك - mudarisatok

    Practice tip: make sentences to show possession, using both pronouns and nouns.
