My new* Arabic teacher has got his priorities straight:
"Today I will teach you the verb 'to hate', 'cause you will use it a lot when you live in Cairo."
(He's Syrian and stuck in Cairo because they are bombing the shit out of his hometown. I don't think he likes it much here.)
انا اكره القاهرة
نحن نكره القاهرة
(I hate Cairo, we hate Cairo, etc.)
*Yes, 'new'. My previous teacher kept trying to set me up with his friends, which got old really fast, plus this one gives me a bunch of lessons for free because I am translating some stuff for him. Win-win situation.
DISCLAIMER: Sarcasm alert! I live here out of free will, I obviously do NOT hate Cairo.
