Hala everyone! Today's Arabic Pick is ...


ArabicEish kalam?
English:  What talk? (Usually it is said to someone who talks improper Arabic and doesn't make any sense and they think they are totally cool for saying it. LOL)
Example:
Arab wannabe:  Wow, I 7obi your 3abaya. (She just wanted to say "Wow, I love your abaya.")
Random Arab person: Eish kalam? o.O`



P.S. I have learned the above word/phrase informally. Arabic speakers, please feel free to correct me. Thanks!
