    Hi Mourad – on card 7 for ‘more, most’, there’s a typo for more. Just thought I’d let you know! Elin

    Hi Mourad, Mark and I were just talking and we were wondering if it would be possible for there to be an online/MSN chat facility were we could maybe chat with you (maybe 1/2 hour a week) online in MSA? because our dialect speaking isn’t very good if we chatted online we could have a record of what we’ve got wrong etc.
    that’d be great

  3. Dvid & Marc,
    Thanks for your thoughtful suggestion. I have added a live chat application to the site. Hopefully we can interact both in Arabic and English.
    Best Regards

    شُكْرَاً – لَكِن أَعْرُفُ أَنْتَ مَشغُول بِعَمَلِك دَائماً

    thank you – but I know you are always busy with your work (also could you please correct the vocalisation of what i’ve writtne if it’s wrong) thanks

    على مفدات متنوعة (5 لِمَاذَا هُنَاكََ ْكَلِمَاتٌ ثَلاَثٌ لِ
    On miscellaneous vocab 5 why are there 3 words for interesting?
    thanks – could you please correct my mistakes here to?

  6. شُكْرَاً – لَكِن أَعْرُفُ أَنْتَ مَشغُول بِعَمَلِك دَائماً is very eloquently written. But, you’d rather say :
    لَكِن أَعْرُفُ أنك مَشغُول بِعَمَلِك دَائماً

  7. Warren.David says:

    نَعَمْ, اَنَا أَفْهَمُ اَلان, شُكْرَاً

    Yes – I understand now, thank you

  8. The nearest meaning to the three words is interesting. However,
    مثير is close to (exciting)
    ممتع is fun
    شيق is entertaining.

  9. Warren.David says:

    شُكْرَاً أنه شيق جِدَاً

    thank you, that is very entertaining.

    did I write أنه – that is correctly?

  10. It depends what you are referring to. أنه with a kasra below the hamza (i.e. Innahu) refers to a masculine noun.
