Additional 50 Arabic Words

Essential Arabic words for Health Care Workers

Volume II

ahlaan bik!

! أهلا بك

I see you are interested in improving your Arabic vocabulary. Like me, I made a decision to improve on my Arabic vocabulary by at least 3000 words in the next three months, with little or no effort. Here are some of the ways am catching up.

1. While you discuss with your patients and co-workers try to use Arabic as much as possible without thinking how odd you sound

2. Try to engage native speakers and note the common words that are difficult for you to say. Eg. I/He/she – anaa/huwa/hiya

3. What do native speakers say that usually raises your curiosity, especially while greeting. Eg. alsalam ealaykum/ peace be upon you and another one you will hear is rahmat alla w brkath/ kindness of God be with you.

4. Have a note handy and write down new words to ask about later.

Permit me to start the words by placing the Arabic words first as I have noticed it helps the words to stick, especially if you have heard the word before.
