Switch your Farash asnoon, your toothbrush, to the other side of the top of your mouth, and make sure youre not brushing too hard

>> Jasmine: How Would you say good morning? 

>> Sarah: Sabah Elhaer

Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and brush in little circles around each tooth 

>> Jasmine: It sounds like Arabic has sounds that aren't in English.

>> Sarah: Yes it definitely does.

>> Jasmine: Do you have a different alphabet in Arabic? 

>> Sarah: Yup.

>> Jasmine: Can you read the alphabet for me? 

>> Sarah: Sure!

>> Jasmine: Ugh I'm gonna need some more lessons...

Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and brush the molars in the way back

>> Jasmine: Are there any easy  Arabic words that you can teach me? 

>> Sarah: In Libya, theres this word, baehi, 

>> Jasmine: Baehi

>> Sarah: which means OK

>> Jasmine: Oh ok. But this is a word that they just say in Libya? 

>> Sarah:  Its very Libyan, and they use it ALL the time. Baehi for everything
