أصعب لغة، كرمالي، هيّ اللغة الروسيّة. صرلي 5 سنين عم إدرسها وكمان عشت 6 إشهر بروسيا وأنا حاكي بسّ روسي، بس بعد في هياكل نحويّة ما بفهمها.
For me, the most difficult language is Russian. I have studied it for 5 years and I lived in Russia for 6 months speaking only Russian, but there are grammatical patterns that I do not understand yet.

Perhaps we can just say كم إسبوع بقي إله (how many weeks left to him)? I have no idea about the Lebnanese phraseology, I am just guessing based on Russian.

Correction: بفطر, بيحب (it's not MSA :wink: )

Also I think it should be بوقت الغدا (because it's idafa, so the first component can't have the article).
ِAnd at least in Syrian, تاكل is pronounced without hamza.

باكل كوسا, بس مو أكلي مفضّل
I eat zuchinni, but it's not my favorite food.

الشخص اللي تحتي بيسافر لمكان بعيد كل عام
The person below me travels to a distant place every year.

Is this how it would be said in Syrian? In MSA you'd have to say أكلي المفضّل but I think you've surpassed my level in Syrian Arabic so I'm not sure if it would be the same. It doesn't sound right to me this way, though.

vijayjohn wrote:.لا، أنا دائما بالبيت
No, I'm always at home.

Maybe this is trivial, but in Levantine (and some other dialects) it's دايما not دائما (the hamza tends to become a yaa in intervocal contexts, and is often dropped at the end of words, eg. MSA شفاء vs. colloquial شفا).
Please correct my mistakes in any language.
