Learn Arabic (Lebanese) Lesson 8 (Home)

If you are staying for a long period in Lebanon, I’m sure you will be looking to rent an apartment. So to make this process easier for you, I thought about making a lesson about how to rent an apartment in Lebanese Arabic, or more accurately, how to look for one.

Transcript:

Hello guys, and welcome to a new lesson to learn Lebanese Arabic.

So because some of you are coming soon to Lebanon, and they will probably need an apartment to stay, in today’s lesson is about that subject.

So let’s start!

Home: beit

Home means beit like you see.

An apartment for rent: she22a lal ajar

And apartment: she22a.
For rent: lil ajar.
So an apartment for rent: she22a lal ajar.

I am looking for an apartment to rent: ana 3am fattish 3ala she22a lal ajar.

I am looking: ana 3am fattish.

For an apartment to rent:
For: 3ala.
An apartment for rent: she22a lal ajar.
ana 3am fattish 3ala she22a lal ajar.

Where can I find an apartment to rent: wein fineh le2eh she22a lal ajar.

Where: wein.
Can I: fineh.
Find: le2eh.
wein fineh le2eh she22a lal ajar.
If you were a group of people you say where can we find an apartment to rent.
So it’s the same but wein fina nle2eh she22a lal ajar. wein fina.
ok?
And I will tell you the best way to find an apartment in Beirut is to go down the street and start asking the people who live nearby if they know an apartment, an expensive one, a cheap one, one room, two bedrooms. I tell you they know it all.

So let’s continue.

How much should I pay per month?: addeh lezim edfa3 bl shaher?

How much: addeh.
Should I: lezim.
Pay: edfa3.
Per month: bl shaher.
addeh lezim edfa3 bl shaher?

Are the electricity and the water bills included?: l kahraba wl mayy domn l ajar?

Electricity means kahraba.
Water: mayy.
Are the electricity and water bills included: l kahraba wl mayy domn l ajar?

so here I’m trying to give you the simple sentences. We can say more like… I don’t know, but I’m trying to give you the easiest way to say it. So are the electricity and water bills included?: l kahraba wel mayy domn l ajar?

Is the bathroom common?: l 7emmem moushtarak?

Bathroom means 7emmem, and you can say toilette, because everyone uses toilette.
So is the bathroom common?: l 7emmem moushtarak? or l toilette moustarak?

I’m looking for a small room with one bed: ana 3am fattish 3ala ooda zgheereh ma3 takhet wa7ad.

I am looking: ana 3am fattish.
For a small room: 3ala ooda zgheereh.
Because room means ooda.
And small means zgheereh.
ana 3am fattish 3ala 2ouda zgheereh.
With: ma3.
One bed: takhet wa7ad.
Takhet: bed.
ana 3am fattish 3ala ooda zgheereh ma3 takhet wa7ad.
You can say also: 3am fattish 3ala ooda zgheereh ma3 takhet wa7ad.
It’s not really important to say ana, but you can still say it.

  1. This is really a very nice video. My child just want to learn a second language because there are many benefits of learning a new language. According to some studies conducted by notable child development specialists, a child not only has the intellectual capacities to learn a new language easier than an adult, but they are also more adept to learning about valuable qualities such as discipline and tolerance, enabling them to become more successful and acquire more opportunities in their adult lives.
