Okay so in the first part, this program teaches you that saying hello is "ahlan wa sahlan". However later on it says it means welcome, and to say hello you say "ahlan". I know a native arabic speaker and he says you just say "ahlan" to say hello. Can anyone explain why they teach you to say "ahlan wa sahlan" first??

Hi Jane, Sorry for the late reply. Ahlan can mean both 'hello' and 'welcome' - have you seen this lesson on greetings? http://members.rocketlanguages.com/lessons/734
