If you have any Arab friends on social media, you may have noticed that when writing in Arabic they often mix numbers in the middle of their words.
If you hang out with Arabic-speakers, you’ve definitely heard the word Wallah before. It’s very common, and once you know it you’ll find plenty of ways to use it! So what is the meaning of Wallah? One of my absolute favorite parts about learning a language is finding those catchy words that you just can’t wait to use in conversation.
If you’ve traveled to an Arabic speaking country, I’m sure you’ve heard the word khalas at least a few times. Same goes for akeed.

While becoming familiar with formal Arabic words is incredibly important, slang words are crucial when it comes to really becoming conversational.
