I wanted to share some of the Arabic words and phrases I've learned over the years. If you are an Arabic language enthusiast just like me, try to incorporate the words or phrases posted here into your daily vocabulary. Have fun!

Greetings fellow life-form and welcome back to "Arabic Pick". I know, I know it is Sunday but since I do not have any Arabic word/phrase entries for the last two Fridays... here it goes...
ArabicWalla yhimmak.
English:  Do not worry.
Say:
"Walla yhimmak." if you are talking to a man.
"Walla yhimmek." to a woman.
Examples:
  1. Walla yhimmek, girl, be happy.
  2. Alejandros are being bullied at schools right now because of Lady Gaga's song. So whoever's name is "Alejandro", I'm so sorry for you. Walla yhimmak, though. This, too, shall pass...


P.S. I have learned the above words or phrases informally. Arabic speakers, please feel free to correct me. Thanks!
