Students at the beginners level tend to become a little bit careless. What that means is, you see any one of these, and your mind immediately goes to one of them that you like more than the others. Some of you really like no sorta like it's your favorite. So whether it says NASA right, or it says necessity or it says NASA to something in your brain says I'm looking at the SATA because that's my favorite one. Some of you are inclined towards the feminine gender Nosara.

00:00:35 --> 00:01:00

So whether you seen a SATA or necessity or Nestle to what a chevron convince you, what are you looking at? Nuts, all right. So when you see the TA, you get messed up, like, for example, yesterday, I said that was one of the tests or one of the quiz questions or the exercise questions was a wait any and this has an attached pronoun. Yeah, and when you get rid of the attached pronoun, you're left with this. And a bunch of you said she

00:01:01 --> 00:01:40

immediate thought was she now let me put those words again. NASA right now sorta NASA, T and NASA to do they all mean different things. NASA that means what? She helped NASA ta means you helped NASA T means feminine. You helped. And those are two means I helped. Okay. Now what? A lot of you jumped? When you heard a waiter you jumped to she helped? Why? Because you see the TA and apparently your favorite word among the four is which one nassarawa to you're like I see. I don't want to think anymore.

00:01:41 --> 00:01:46

But if you stop and pause, what would you discover is the actual match for a way? Ta

00:01:48 --> 00:02:08

now sobre da Anta I'm pointing this out to you, because this is a common mistake many of you make. You're not the first to make them there have been 1000s before you that have made them. So you have a tendency to make the same mistake. So watch out for it. I'm, I'm pointing out to you the places where you end up slipping up. Right. So this is one of those places where you end up slipping up, okay.

00:02:09 --> 00:02:11

Now, another place you slip up

00:02:19 --> 00:02:53

and I say who disbelieved, and a very common answer that students give me when I say who disbelieved is she disbelieved. Okay? She disbelieved Now, why this is the wrong answer. But I want you to understand why is this such a common wrong answer? Why do so many students over 50% of beginner students end up giving this wrong answer for this question. There's a statistical reason here. I want you to be aware of that so you can avoid that mistake for yourself. Cafferty is the feminine you isn't it?

00:02:54 --> 00:03:06

It's the feminine you and in the English language, feminine. Immediately. Where does your subconscious mind what word pops in your head the moment you think feminine. That's why you say she

00:03:07 --> 00:03:10

because the English language doesn't have a feminine version of you.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:18

It has a feminine version of he which is what she but it doesn't have a feminine version of you.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:43

It's just you. But in Arabic, there are six different use you both of you, all of you feminine you both of you, women, all of you women, it's six use. That's not something we're subconsciously used to in English. So the moment we think feminine, the mind says Oh, I know she and that's a mistake. If this was she, it would have actually been

00:03:45 --> 00:03:46

Gaffar rot.

00:03:47 --> 00:04:14

She disbelieved. You understand? So two possible places of common error I've identified for you. Yeah, these are these are pitfalls. This is the this is the thing that can be our students make these mistakes. The problem also with you, folks, I blame you is you're dramatic. So what happens is you make one of mistakes a mistake like this one you're like forget it. I don't understand anything.

00:04:15 --> 00:04:16

Offers too much.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:36

yardage one confused one can not all of Arabic didn't fall apart. It's not Jenga blocks that you pulled a long block and the whole thing fell apart. It's not it's not a house of cards. It's one mistake don't drama drama ties it into I just don't understand anything anymore. No, you don't understand one issue.

00:04:37 --> 00:04:41

Don't take one issue and make it everything.

00:04:42 --> 00:05:00

So you what happens then is you end up overwhelming yourself. And when you overwhelm yourself, your brain stops working. And even the problems that were easy now become difficult because you've already told yourself it's difficult. Let me tell you something about you probably already know this. Those of you that have played sports before. Sports are have a lot to do with that.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:03

athletic ability. But equally, sports actually have to do with psychology,

00:05:05 --> 00:05:17

sports, every great team in the world and any sport has a sports psychologist, they actually have a sports psychologist, if you get under the skin of your opponent,

00:05:18 --> 00:05:20

if you get them anxious or nervous, or

00:05:21 --> 00:05:25

their normal performance goes away, doesn't it?

00:05:26 --> 00:06:05

And some of you aren't athletes, but you're gamers how many gamers here, I'm a gamer. If you're scared of a boss, and you're scared to attack, you're gonna get crushed every time until you let go of that fear and you learn to end even though you lose, you won't lose as badly. Until you just overcome the nervous agitation. There's a nervous agitation inside you that paralyzes you from learning. I want you to get past that, in your Arabic studies make mistakes, it's okay. But don't let those mistakes be like the end of the world for yourself. You understand? That's, that's an important thing. I want you because you know, information is piling up and you understood 70% Then

00:06:05 --> 00:06:35

you 5% You don't you got a little confused you say, you know, so I just don't understand anything I just gave up. No, you were doing fine with 70% you have a problem from 71 to 75%. That's the part you have a problem. Don't exaggerate that and say, I don't get anything. This kind of negative self talk paralyzes you, it hurts you. It keeps you from learning, right. And so this is something that I've noticed in students quite a bit and it's important that you address that. Okay.

00:06:36 --> 00:07:10
