My name is Issam
marhaba, ismī cisām
Hi, my name is Issam.
'anā 'askun fī l-'iskandariyya, thāniyy akbar mudun misr.
I live in Alexandria, the second largest city in Egypt.
innaha madinatun jamīla, bihā shawatiy'un kathira
It is a beautiful city, with many beaches.
I love it.
cailati taskun fīl-'iskadariyya 'aydān, wa lākin 'akhi yaskun fī l-qāhira 'al-ān.
My family lives also in Alexandria, but my brother is now living in Cairo.
huwa yaqūl innahu yuhibbuha akthar mina l-'iskandariyya.
He says that he loves it more than Alexandria.
'anā 'azunn innahu majnūn.
I think he is mad.
