    LESSON SIX : Introducing and talking about yourself and your friends.

    Saying who you are

    There are two ways to introduce yourself :

    أنا محمّد
    (ana Mohammed) I am Mohammed
    إسمي محمّد
    (ismee Mohammed) My name is Mohammed
    I am, He is, She is

    The first way is similar to how we said "this is" "that is" (see lesson two), except we are swapping "this" for "I". Look at the following

    أنا محمّد
    (ana Mohammed) I am Mohammed
    أنتَ رشيد
    (anta Rachid) you are Rachid (to a boy)
    أنتِ سارة
    (anti Saara) you are Saara(to a girl)
    هو عليّ
    (huwa Ali) He is Ali
    هي نورة
    (hiya Noura) She is Noura

    My name is... (possessive pronouns)
    To understand this method, first we need to look at how to say "My", "your", "his" and "her". (These words are referred to grammatically as possessive pronouns.)
    In Arabic these are expressed by letters joined to the end of the word.
    Look at the following examples : (the arabic word for "name" is
    إسم )

    إسمي
    (ismee)my name
    إسمكَ
    (Ismuka) your name (to a boy)
    إسمكِ
    (Ismuki) your name (to a girl)
    إسمه
    (Ismuhu) his name
    إسمها
    (Ismuhaa) her name

    These can be added to any word to show who it belongs to, eg
    كتابي
    (kitaabee) my book

    Asking questions about who people are
    We learned before that the word for who is
    من
    من هذا؟
    (man haadha?) who is this?(male)
    من هذه؟
    (man haadhihi?) who is this?(female)
    من ذلك؟
    (man dhaalika?) who is that?(male)
    من تلك؟
    (man tilka?) who is that?(female)

    These questions should be familiar from lesson two.
    We could now also ask :
    من أنتَ؟
    (man anta?) who are you? (to a boy)
    من أنتِ؟
    (man anti?) who are you? (to a girl)

    We can also ask questions such as "Is this Ali?" or "Is this Noura?" as we learned in lesson two.
    هل هذا عليّ؟
    (hal haadhaa Ali?) Is this Ali?
    هل هذه نورة؟
    (hal haadhihi Noura?) Is this Noura?
    هل هذه أمّكَ؟
    (hal haadhihi Ummuka?) Is this your mother? (to a boy)

    To ask "what is your name" we ask...
    ما إسمكَ؟
    (maa Ismuka?) what is your name? (to a boy)
    ما إسمكِ؟
    (maa ismuki?) what is your name? (to a girl)
    A sample answer would be...
    إسمي محمّد
    Ismee Mohammed My name is Mohammed
