In this section, I will post vocabularies, sentences and paragraphs in English, and show their translation in Arabic.  Please feel free to forward me any small paragraph that you wish for me to translate in Arabic.

Below you will see English paragraphs and their Arabic translations:

"Today, I will wake up at 5:00 am in the morning.  The first thing I will do is to get up from the bed, stretch myself a little bit and then go to the bathroom.   In the bathroom, I will use it, then take a shower and brush my teeth while I am in the shower."

Today, I will wake up at 5:00 am in the morning - Al-yawm, ana sowfa astaykaith ala 5:00 am fee al-sabah.

I -                              ana
will -                          sowfa
do -                           af-alahu   (derived from yaf-alahu, which means "to do".  The reason why
                                                "af-alahu" instead of "yaf-alahu" is because the "af" refers to
                                                me talking about myself, where "yaf" refers to me talking about
                                                someone else who is a male.  "taf-alahu" is also derived from
                                                "yaf-alahu", which refers to me talking about someone else who
                                                is a female).

                                                or "go" referring to a male person.  "tath-hab" could either mean
                                                "she goes" or "go" referring to a female person, or "you are going"
                                                as in "anta tath-hab", which means "you are going".  "anta ith-hab"

brush -                      ufar-shee   (derived from "yufar-shee" which means he brushes.   "tufar-shee"
                                                 means "she brushes".  All of the words refer to brushing the teeth.
                                                 "he brushs hair" on the other hand means "yumash-shait shaar".
                                                  Again, "umash-shait" means "I brush" and "tumash-shait" means
                                                  "she brushes", and all refer to brushing the hair.

uhib -                         uhib
my people-                 shaabi (Derived from "Shaab" which means "nation".  "people" in English

                                             and not nation means "naas".  "my people" means "naasi", where the
                                             "i" at the end refers to "my").

I love my country and I love my people - ana uhib baladi wa ana uhib shaabi.
