How to be unimpressed in Darija

Ana åyana.
I'm tired.

Ma bghit shi nahdar.
I don't want to talk.

Safi, mshi.
Go away.

Khalini biwahdi.
Leave me alone.

W qaf.

Baraka ma tahdar måya.
Stop talking to me.

Ma kayhimni shi.
I'm not interested.

Ma shi shughli.
I don't care.


  1. I love it, mihija! Even though it's sooo misarable and depressing expressions, I got a little laugh. When you get to these kind of expressions in the process of learning a language, you know you can master every imaginable situation you might encounter. I know you're safe!

    love, jo-jo

  2. Hahah, I also love the cat! The international symbol of ambivalence!
