Alif Baa Unit 4 Part 3.1: Expressing "it" in Arabic


This lesson teaches students how to use masculine and feminine pronouns to express the Arabic equivalent of the word "it".

All words in Arabic are either masculine or feminine.  Therefore there is no exact equivalent of the gender neutral word it.  Instead, Arabic uses the pronounce for "he" and "she" to express the same meaning as the word "it" in English.
