Welcome to this lesson on a topic that’s sure to get your mouth watering - food! Today we’re going to learn some of the most common words for food in Arabic.
It’s important to know some basic vocabulary for food when traveling in an Arabic-speaking country. You’ll find it handy when going out to eat or when shopping for food in a market. Talk about what you like, ‘Ana Ba7ib_____’, what you don’t like ‘Ana mosh ba7ib______’, or perhaps you have a food allergy you need to tell your waiter about, ‘Ana 3andi 7asaseya min________’. Let’s tuck in to this lesson!
