How to talk about present actions in Egyptian Arabic

Today you’re going to hear how to talk about present actions in Egyptian Arabic.

Important Note: Each native speaker has given a sample of exactly how they would speak in real life when talking about a present action. What this means is that this is not a list of simple present conjugated verbs but rather a combination of simple present, active participle, habitual present and even future verbs.

It’s important to learn verbs the way they’re naturally used in context rather than from memorized conjugation tables.

Sample sentences:

  • I'm going.
  • You're running.
  • You're (plural) sleeping.
  • She's coming.
  • He's speaking.
  • We're seeing.
  • They're knowing.
