Learn Arabic with Maha lesson 10

Lesson 10 is teaching about how to express your "want". Slowly by surely we are slowly build up our capability to speak arabic language. Join me to watch the video, and listen to Maha.



We are introduced into two basic phrases.

1. I want to .... ureedu

2. I need to ..... ahtaju ila

It is is interesting to nte that the arabic for I need to is made up of 2 words, ahteeju ila, it is always together. The arabic for I want to is one word ureedu. Please take note that arabic is sensitive to the length of the syllable.

YOU WANT SOMETHING

If you want something, which is a nouns, such as water or food.. this is how you say it..
a. I want water ................ ureedu al-maa'

b. I need water ............... ahtaju ila al-maa'


YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING

If you want to do something, then, the method is different.

The thing that you want to do must be in present tense and we insert the word an before the word.. like in english, we put to. E.g I want to eat.

a. I want to drink ............ ureedu an akul

b. I need to drink ...................... ahtaju ila an akul

Good luck with learning arabic from Maha.
