Steps

  1. 1
    We will be using the word order "Verb-Subject-Object", which is abbreviated as VSO.
    We will begin the sentence with a verb, followed by a subject, followed by the object. This will work for pretty much any verbal sentence.

    We have the following two sentences in English, "I went to the airport" and "He studied in the university".

  3. 3
    We can see in both of these examples that English begins it's verbal sentence with a subject.
    "I" and "He" are the subjects of these two sentences.

  4. 4
    We then follow with a verb, as in the case of "studied" or "went".

  5. 5
    Then, we have the object "in the university" or "to the airport".

  6. 6
    If we wanted to put the word order of these sentences in VSO format, we would say, "Went I to the airport" or "Studied he in the university".
    This does not sound correct in English, but it does work in Arabic.

    Let's translate these sentences into the Arabic language.
    "I went to the airport" will become, in Arabic, "thahabtu ilaa almatoor".

  8. 8
    "Thahabtu" is the past tense conjugation for "I" of the verb "to go".
    "To go" in the past tense is "went", and the ending for "I" is "tu". We have "thahaba", which becomes "thahabtu" when we place the ending for "I".

    We need to follow this with "to", which is "ilaa".

  10. 10
    "Ilaa" is written alif, laam, and then a long "a" sound, which looks like a yaa without the dots below it.
    Again, that is "ilaa".

  11. 11
    "The airport" is "almatoor".
    It starts with "al" for definite, and then miim, tha, alif, ra. "Thahabtu ilaa almatoor" is "I went to the airport".

  12. 12
    For the second sentence, we have the verb "darasa".
    We need to conjugate this verb for "he", which is still "darasa".

    "The university" is "al jami'a".
    It begins with "al" for definite, then jiim, alif, miim, ayn, taa marbuuta. Again, it is "darasa fîl jami'a".
