Hi Debra,

Fly in Arabic is ذبابه(thobaba); ديل(dael) is not fly.

Fox in Arabic is ثعلب(tha3lab)

Tail in Arabic is ذنب (m) (dhánab); ذيل (m) (dhayl)

Below is from the lession Survival Kit: Pronunciation

ذيل (theyl) this word means tail.

The second word does not mean tail.
ديل
dael

ذبابه this word is correct for fly.
thobaba
fly

Pronunciation
دبانه this word does not mean fly.
debana

I hope this helps.

Hi Debra. We joined Arabic at around the same time, but you are certainly flying through the program at a rapid rate.
