In this lesson, you’re going to learn how to introduce yourself in Arabic. There are a few other ways to say it, depending on how formal you want to be.
Let’s first look at an informal way to introduce yourself in Arabic. Mará¸¥aban, Ê¾anÄ� Carole. Surirtu biliqÄ�Ê¾ika. Hi, I’m Carole. It’s a pleasure to meet you slowly Mará¸¥aban, Ê¾anÄ� Carole. Surirtu biliqÄ�Ê¾ika. Now you try it: Start by saying Mará¸¥aban which is the equivalent of Hi. Then, say Ê¾anÄ� (literally I am) followed by your name. Ê¾anÄ� Carole is â€˜I am Carole’. Finally, say â€˜Nice to meet you’. If you are talking to a man, you say surirtu biliqÄ�’ika. If you are talking to a woman, say surirtu biliqÄ�’iki. if you are talking to a woman. This phrase.
Means â€œI am happy to meet you.â€�surirtu is literally â€œIam gladâ€� or â€˜nice to`and biliqÄ�’ikabiliqÄ�’iki is â€œto meet youâ€�. In the English phrase â€œGlad to meet you,â€� â€œyouâ€� is a neutral word. You can use it for both men and women. But in Arabic, the word â€œyouâ€� needs a gender. When you change the last letter in liqÄ�Ê¾ika, â€œaâ€� to an â€œiâ€� sound, liqÄ�Ê¾iki, you are actually changing the word â€œyouâ€� from the male to female version. Please be careful to use the correct version! Now let’s see another way of introducing yourself. In this version you will say â€˜ Hi,.
My name is Carole’ instead of â€˜Hi, I am Carole’. And we will learn another way of saying â€˜nice to meet you’. Mará¸¥aban, Ê¾ismÄ« Carole. TaÅ¡arraftu bimaÊ¿rifatika. Hi, my name is Carole. I am honored to meet you. slowly Mará¸¥aban, Ê¾ismÄ« Carole. TaÅ¡arraftu bimaÊ¿rifatika. What has changed from the previous introduction? Let’s take a close look at these together. First, mará¸¥aban, Ê¾anÄ� Carole has changed to Mará¸¥aban, Ê¾ismÄ« Carole. So, instead.
Of saying Hi, I’m Carole, we are speaking in a more formal way by saying Hi, my name is Carole. Next, after giving your name, instead of saying surirtu biliqÄ�’ika you say TaÅ¡arraftu bimaÊ¿rifatika or I am honored to meet you, which is a bit more formal. Again, we should not forget to change the ending of the word depending on the gender of the person you’re speaking to. It would be TaÅ¡arraftu bimaÊ¿rifatika for a man and TaÅ¡arraftu bimaÊ¿rifatiki in case of a woman. One more time: here are the four ways you learned to introduce yourself in Arabic. Informally, mará¸¥aban, Ê¾anÄ� Carole.surirtu biliqÄ�’ika. if you are speaking to a man.
And, mará¸¥aban, Ê¾anÄ� Carole.surirtu biliqÄ�’iki if you are speaking to a woman. The formal way to introduce yourself is: Mará¸¥aban, Ê¾ismÄ« Carole. TaÅ¡arraftu bimaÊ¿rifatika if the person you’re talking to is a man. and Mará¸¥aban, Ê¾ismÄ« Carole. TaÅ¡arraftu bimaÊ¿rifatiki if that person is a woman. Now it’s time for Carole’s tips. When you introduce yourself in the Middle East or Northern African countries, it’s polite to offer your right hand for a handshake or give three kisses on the cheeks, although the rules vary depending on where you are.
Arab people place great value on politeness, so for example, it is considered rude to enter a room or a place without greeting everyone.
