One of the main reasons why people don’t feel comfortable speaking Arabic is because they feel like they cannot express themselves. They really wana express their emotions and as a beginner they cannot do that in Arabic. So what do they do? They resort to using their mother tongue. Which is a big mistake.
So I below are a few emotions you can express in Arabic.
لا أصد ق la usadiq I don’t believe it
لا أعتقد ذلك la aatiqidu zaaliq I don’t think so
يقودنى الى ألجنون yaqoodini ilal junoon it/he is driving me mad (You gonna need use this lol)
أنا قلق ana qaliqun I’m worried
هذا مضحك hasa mudhiq this is funny
أنا آسف ana aasif I’m sorry
أنا متضايق ana mutadwayiq I’m annoyed
أنا غضبان ana gatbaan I’m angry
أشعر بالوحدة ashuro bil wahdah I feel lonely
أشعر بلاحباط ashuro bil ihbaat I feel frustrated
انا أمزح ana amzah I’m joking
Being able to express your emotions in Arabic is definitely key to speaking it more often.
Try to learn as many words sentences involving expressing your emotions and the language will feel less alien to you. If you don’t know the Arabic word for the exact emotion you are feeling then just describe it no matter how long it takes. Using your native tongue won’t help you at all.
