Arabic for beginners

Here is a simple Arabic conversation
مَا اسمُكَ؟
pronounce: ma esmoka?
meaning : what`s your name ?(when I am talking to a male)


مَا اسمُكِ؟

pronounce: ma esmoky?
meaning : what`s your name ?(when I am talking to a female)

so ما means what
اسم means name
كَ (ka) at the end of the noun means your for a male.
كِ (ky) at the end of the noun means your for a female.


Here is another example

كًم عُمرُكَ؟

pronounce : kam `omroka?
meaning: how old are you? (when I am talking to a male)


كًم عُمرُكِ؟

pronounce : kam `omroky?
meaning: how old are you? (when I am talking to a female)

كًم means how how much or how many.
عُمرُ means age .

كَ (ka) at the end of the noun means your for a male.
كِ (ky) at the end of the noun means your for a female.
