How to talk about past actions in Levantine Arabic

Intermediate
grammar

Today you’re going to hear how to talk about past actions in Levantine Arabic.

Sample sentences:

  • I went.
  • You ran.
  • You (plural) slept.
  • She came.
  • He spoke.
  • We saw.
  • They knew.
  • Nicole Meda

    It would be helpful to provide all the conjugations (I, you, he, they etc.) for each verb, not just one for each. It would also be helpful to explain any rules for past tense conjugations if there are any.

  • Giovanni Minto

    I agree with nicole . I find this lesson quite useless , why should i be interested in learning how to say “i went” without even knowing how to say “he went” ? In my humble opinion you should focus more on the listening part ( Faust series is extremely good) , since these kind of lessons do not provide any significant information for an absolute beginner and they are too easy for someone who already speaks a little bit.

    I agree with the previous two comments. It is quite frustrating you would be better to do one verb in its entirety or even better two or three

    Thanks Lina. Given that the first comment was from June 2016, any update on when the more detailed lesson will be posted?
