المرادف ل”يا” بالانجليزية – The equivalent of the Arabic “ya” in English

https://youtu.be/el-nbgTDHDo I love teaching English to native Arabic speakers. أحب أعلم الانجليزية لناطقين العربية، وكل فترة اسمع سؤال يأثر فيا لدرجة اني اصور فيديو عنه...اليوم نتكلم عن "يا" ومعناها بالانجليزية. For those of you learning Arabic, you may have heard about "ya" -- to get someone's attention before saying their name. In this video, we talk about the English equivalent of "ya" and when we use it.  Hope this helps!  As always, please LIKE and SUB <3…

Acting in the Middle East vs. USA – التمثيل في أمريكا والخليج

https://youtu.be/JXJFD2ojaNo 4 Years Ago, some Snaps I did went viral. من 4 سنوات، سويت سنابات عن شيء والموضوع انتشر بشكل كبير It was crazy--I'd never been attacked so much for talking about something. شيء غريب -- عمري ما شفت انتقاد مثل اللي شفته خلال الفترة بعد ما انتشرت السنابات In hindsight, I feel it may have been because I did those Snaps in English and many didn't really understand what I was saying. In any case, we…

الإبجدية اللإنجليزية – والحروف العربية The English Alphabet & Arabic Letter Equivalents

https://youtu.be/Vr-ZlspJOhQ How would you explain "y" sounds using Arabic letters? Hello everyone!   This post is for my English learners (and perhaps Arabic learners may find this useful as well!). About a year ago, I filmed a video on letters in the English alphabet and what their Arabic "equivalents" would be. It was an interesting challenge--as Arabic has "long vowels" and "short vowels." Going through the sounds and letter combinations reminded me why I love these…

Doing good vs. doing well, Moot vs. Mute, and another EMBARRASSING Story

https://youtu.be/25wzApSHZYYHey everybody!  A few videos ago I talked about common mistakes I see in English writing.Here is one of them:https://youtu.be/AP2gUskPwEoHere is a second one: https://youtu.be/tsPnjbn3KFA The thing is, some people see these videos and say "I could care less about my writing, as long as people get what I mean."Let's stop right there.You could care less? Don't you mean "I couldn't care less?"Because if you could care less, it means that you do care...at least a little bit. Because…

Convict vs. Convince

The other day I got a message from someone who wanted me to get In-N-Out burger to come to Saudi Arabia. They wrote "if you can convict them" - I couldn't help but laugh out loud....and take a screenshot ;) Although we spell them almost the same -- they mean very different things. Convince: (a verb) means "to make someone believe, or feel sure about something, especially by using logic, argument or evidence." Convict (also…
