Basic Kuwaiti Arabic Numbers, Weekdays, Words and Phrases

Everyone goes to school to learn English, Math, Science, Algebra and so on, but there is one thing I learned without going to school – "How to speak basic Kuwaiti Arabic language". It was hard to begin with but managed to learn the spoken version of Kuwaiti Arabic language after 3 months. It was a challenge learning the Kuwaiti Arabic words and phrases, the weekdays and the numbers but it was all worth it and now I can share it too.

This is how I did it:

  1. I went to work in Kuwait, an Arabic speaking country. I had no idea what language they speak, what food they ate, and what work I would do.
  2. I was given a job as a Nanny for two lovely boys of a lovely Kuwaiti couple. But the language barrier was a problem. I couldn't understand any of the words the children were saying. The children only speak Arabic.
  3. I asked my ex-employer, who speak English, to give me a notebook. In this notebook, I wrote down anything and everything the kids said to me, then I asked the parents for the meanings. I began to make note of every word, phrase, or sentence that I hear from anyone, such as my ex-employers' parents, sisters, brothers and their friends. Then, my employer would translate everything for me.

Three months passed and I was speaking the Kuwaiti Arabic language. I was pleased with myself. Although I cannot write in Arabic Alphabet, I am now able to communicate verbally with the kids and everyone in the family–to anyone really. It wasn't easy, but it was fun to try to learn and pronounce a new language.

There are many more, but these are just a few words and phrases that I learned during my first month in Kuwait. To sum it up, learning another language is easy when you live in a country that speaks another language. That is how I learned how to speak Arabic. It came in handy being a nanny, because I could communicate with the kids without repeatedly asking their parents what it was that they wanted.

Learning Another Language Has Lots of Benefits


Learning another language definitely has lots of benefits like understanding another person in a foreign country. It is easier to adjust as well if you live in a country that has a different language to yours. I find that if you speak their language they become more interested to get to know you more.

Learning another language improves communication and understanding between two different people. Language brings people closer to each other too. Language connects people around the world.

Just an example, my sister worked in Israel too and has learnt the Hebrew language. She communicates well with her employer in Hebrew. To me, this shows that wherever we go in the world, another language can be learned if we are interested in learning something new.

I find it very useful to know a second language, because anywhere you go in the world, you are able to connect with other people who has a different language to yours.

For me, learning the English language when I was at school benefitted me a lifetime. I would not be able to communicate with other people if I had not learn English. Learning the English and the Arabic language had an everlasting benefit for me. I hope that my hub about the Arabic Language will also benefit you.

      Thank you Robert for reading my hub and your lovely comment. You are very sharp noticing the similarity of the numbers and the four days of the week. I used to put Al before them but one commenter said there is no need to put Al like Al Ethnin, Al thalat but I was corrected by this Arab commenter so I changed it.

      Majibar, thank you if my article had helped you. You can learn Arabic by lots of practice but it would be better if you go to a place where they speak the language and learn from local Arabic people. There is another hub that I wrote about using the Arabic words in sentences and it is translated in the English language so you can speak Arabic. Good luck.

      I don't think they are nice words if I said them to you. Swear words are not good to say to fellow human being.

      Thank you whoever you are who is putting the previous comments right. I was taught that marra means woman and riyal means man and I am sticking to it and it seems you agree with me. Thank you for that. I think you are right, he was thinking of the bad word hmar or hmara. Thank you for pointing that out.
