    Hi there,
    I thought I learnt that “I think’ was ‘bafakkir’ while living in Palestine. 
    The lesson here says that a Palestinian would say ‘athun’. Are these both correct? Or is one more correct than the other?

      There are several ways to say this actually.

      Both of these essentially mean the same thing (so equally correct) but with slightly different nuances just as in English. “اظن” could be translated as ‘I suppose/reckon’. “افكر” is literally ‘I think’.
