Basic Spoken Kuwaiti Arabic Phrases and Words Translated to English

Linda is passionate about learning and speaking a new language like Arabic, English, Tagalog(my own language) and many more.

Learning the Kuwaiti Arabic Language

Sometimes when we go to a foreign land and people there don't speak the English language, it is quite hard to communicate with them if we don't know their language. That is what happened to me when I went to work in Kuwait years ago. Although it was difficult at first, I made myself learn the Arabic language rather than teach them the English Language.

It was not easy to learn the Kuwaiti Arabic language because there is a difference between male and female words. When you are referring to a man or a woman, there is a different spelling for the Arabic words you use, and the way you pronounce them is different. Learning Kuwaiti Arabic words or phrases first is by far the easiest way to learn the new language. Then later on you can apply them in sentences when you get more confident. That's what I did.

Learning a new language is not easy but with strong determination and massive interest, it is possible to achieve. It is good to learn new languages because it increases knowledge and it improves communication with other nationalities. I believe language makes the connection between strangers or new people and their culture as well.

Spoken Kuwaiti Arabic Phrases Written as They Are Pronounced

Just to let you know, I wrote the Arabic words how they are pronounced because I can't write the Arabic alphabets. I wish I could, but I find it is easier to learn the spoken version of Arabic than the alphabets. It is much easier to learn Arabic properly when you work and live in a place that speaks the Arabic language like in the Middle East.

Thank you for reading my article. I hope that it helps you as it did me. Please leave any comments that you may have at the bottom of this page.

Thank you for your comment. I just want you to know that I have worked there for 5 years and I get to know how to speak their Arabic language. I am quite happy if you can teach me the proper Arabic that you know. I admit I am not a native of Kuwait but I have managed to learn their own language. I am open to corrections or suggestions and please point out my mistakes then I could correct.

Thank you Ahmad for your comment. I don't know all kinds of Arabic language and also I just learnt the Spoken Kuwaiti Arabic language, obviously mistakes can be made. I want you to know that I am not an Arab person who can speak Arabic fluently. Thank you for the correction though.

Ahmad Yadikar on July 17, 2018:

Your list of Kuwaiti words has some mistakes.

Hi! Bob,

Try this "shlonic ya sadik or sadiki." I don't know if your friend is a male or female because when you address someone in Kuwait there is a difference between male and female.

Bob on December 24, 2017:

I would like to say to a college (faculty) colleague of mine, who is Kuwaiti:

"How are you, friend?" (He is in Kuwait for the "holidays".)

I have completed my (our) course on-line page. The rest is simply pleasantries and details in English.

How do I say this respectively and honorably to my colleague?


"An equal to the addressee."

Thank you Austin Chole for reading my article. It is my idea indeed to write this article although it is not perfect it will help those who are finding it hard to communicate in Kuwaiti Arabic. I've written 3 articles about these, have you read all of them.

Austin Chole on November 26, 2017:

This is really helping me, it's very hard to communicate here in Kuwait thank you so much looking forward to see more words and phrases

Thank you dalia for your comment, you have to understand I am not a native of Kuwait. I just learnt Kuwaiti Arabic while I was working there years ago. It maybe broken Arabic but it does help to communicate what I am saying. It is a hard language to learn I must admit but it helped me when I was working there.

dalia on October 30, 2017:

this is broken kuwaiti. some are not kuwaiti at all. also the grammar is all wrong. i feel you could verify your phrases with an actual kuwaiti. sorry but it sounds like someone from south asia speaking broken arabic.
