Good job, Tatyana! Thank you for the vocabulary. It seems you have sounds in Arabic that cannot be found in English. These include “ح, ض, غ, ط”.

Be careful about the following:

Merchant -> /ˈmɜːtʃənt $ ˈmɜːr-/ | https://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/merchant

Engineer -> /ˌendʒəˈnɪr/ | https://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/engineer

This is amazing Tatyana.

 

Thanks so much again!

Each evening I study Arabic and your materials always help me out!

I really like how you say each word slowly and repeat it. Have you thought of being a teacher of Arabic in your spare time?

I'll be posting in Arabic very soon again, so I hope you will be impressed haha

:)
