  6. Great video, thank you Hiba and Fouad.I would like to know something: during the video did you speak normally or did you try to use simple words in order to make it easier for us to understand? I understood some sentences before seeing the subtitles, but I need to get used to the speed of the dialogues to improve my comprehension (it was a bit fast to me, but I know it could be even faster if u were in a hurry). Regards from a Brazilian-Lebanese fan.

  7. Not really related but can someone give me some tips on pronouncing ayn? I've been at it for a year and I sound ridiculous.
    my native language is Spanish and I speak English, French and Portuguese but I don't think there is an equivalent sound in any of the languages I've learned. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  8. I will be traveling to Beirut in June. I don't speak a word arabic but I am fluent in French, can I get away with French in Beirut easily? Also: any tips to go while I'm there?? ๐Ÿ™‚ Love your videos! Greetings from the Netherlands..
