Learn Standard Aabic II (Arabic Phrases)



You can pause the video any time and reply any part you like or didn't hear well. For the table below I used the blue font in some places in transliteration to distinguish between the female and male gender. Which is not that different from the masculine form, just an extra “i” or “a” …

The video below contains the same text as the table below it, however the video contains audio as well, so that you will be able to hear the words and see how they're written.
