Salam Alaikum, and welcome to video five of the Arabic sounds Video Series. Today, in sha Allah, we're going to tackle only one letter. The reason why we're only tackling one letter today is this letter doesn't exist, the sound that it produces, doesn't exist in any other language. And that is the slaw the saw sod with a.on top of it, it's called LOD, LOD. Now the first thing we need to know is not what sound it makes is that it is a brand new sound to your ear. So what I recommend is just watch the video through and through. First hear the sound because this is like your baby ears, hearing something brand new. So please feel free to watch the video through keep it as concise as
possible. But watch it through and keep listening to law.
Mod mod, it has a sound before it. And it's not a D and it's not a Z. So that's going to be our second lesson for today. Don't make a D sound or a Z sound, DOD or Zod Zwaan. Try not to do that. And it would be a lot easier if you just listened one more time, you're going to take the sides of your tongue not the front wall, wall board. Okay, it didn't have a D, it didn't have a Z. I didn't move my lips at all. So what exactly was going on? I use the sides of my tongue to touch the big teeth in the back the molars. So my tongue is gonna press up to the side.
More, more, you kind of hear the sound before it comes out of my mouth.
Whoa, now we call it like a bullfrog. If you ever seen a frog when they ribbit, they don't use the front of their mouth, it actually just fills up.
Wall war. So you've heard it a few times. I'll give you a few examples. And I'd like you to practice it to the best of your ability. Let's try together. Walla Walla. Good. Let's try one more.
pucker your lips, your lean, your lean, your lean. Okay. Now you're telling yourself No, the last four videos worked for me this one didn't. If anything's going to be new to your ear. It's not difficult. It's just new. So give it a little bit of time side of the tongue. Tongue is going to be flat. I'm going to press it to one side here. Mm hmm. Board.
Ward. Keep practicing. Use your mirror. Make sure your lips are not touching zoom quad. That would be wrong. That would be off. But I'm sure you're gonna get a lot better at home. So let's try the word. Wallah. Great. Now let's try a simple one. More, more. Fantastic. That's going to be today's lesson. I kept it short so that you'd watch this video at least three times. And I'm sure it's gonna get a little bit taxing, but do your best in sha Allah. I'll speak to you all soon in the next video. Take care was Sarah more Alikum warahmatu law
