Lesson 6 الدَّرْسُ السَّادِسُ

Introduction - مُقَدِّمَةٌ

  • In this lesson we will learn the following things:




This is a lady doctor

/Hādhihi ŧabībatun/

هَـٰذِهِ طَبِيبَةٌ.

This is a bag

/Hādhihī ħaqībatun/

هَـٰذِهِ حَقِيبَةٌ.

  • In Arabic Language, words can be either masculine or feminine. This does not necessarily follow a set logic, e.g., whilst we know that the noun "girl" is feminine, the noun for "beard" is also feminine. This should be understood alongside the rules of how a word is changed from masculine to feminine that are covered in another lesson (see Lesson 4 section 7). A few examples of nouns and adjectives which do not have any of the symbols for the feminine nouns but are still considered to be feminine are illustrated below: 




The Earth

/Al Arđu/


A pot



The hand



    • In this lesson we will learn the use of one new preposition. We have learnt that prepositions are the words used to connect two or more words or sentences (Lesson 4 section 3).
