: Yuusef
،عزيزتي مريم
.كيف الحال؟ أنا بخير الحمد الله
القاهرة مدينة جميلة. الآن أنا اجلس في المقهى واشرب القهوة. الطقس حار جداً الآن. ربما سوف اذهب الى البحر وسوف أسبح غدّاً

أمس صباحاً ذَهَبتُ الى الاهرامات مع اصدقائي وفي الليل ذهبنا الى حفلة زواج صديقنا!عادةً لا أرقس كثيراً ولكن في حفلة رقصتُ النهار كامل

في البداية لم أفهم اللهجة المصريّة. درستُ بجدية كل يوم وأجيراً فهمتُ قليلاً

,مع السلامة
يوسف
Translation:
Yuusef:Dear Mariam,
How are you? I am fine. Cairo is a beautiful city. Now I am sitting in a cafe and drinking coffee. The weather is very hot now. Maybe I will travel to the sea and swim tomorrow. Yesterday morning I went to the Pyramids with my friends and at night we went to our friend's wedding party. I usually don't dance but in the party I danced the whole night!
In the beginning, I didn't understand the Egyptian dialect. I studied seriously every day and I finally understand a little!
Good Bye,
Yuusef
