I wanted to know the pronounciations of these words because they all have the same similar type of word : علم

Flag
Teach
World
Science
Learn

Also How do you say : 'Show me'

And also how do pronounce these 2 words . They also have the same type of word

1. Elevator - مصعد
2. Help - مساعد

Ahlan j123456;

Yes, those words are very close in pronunciation, here are my comments about each one:
Flag: 3alam (noun)
Teach: 3allam (verb/past tense)
World: 3aalam (noun)
Science: 3elm (noun)
Learn: ta3allam (verb past tense)

(Show me) is areny.

Elevator is me93ad (noun)
Help (I think you mean Helper) is mosaa3ed.

I see your point is very important and I hope that would help every one who sees this post.

6ayeb j123456,,
Flour is Daqeeq
Minute is Daqeeqa
Nose is Anf
Violence is 3onf (try to pronounce 3 from the middle of the throat to give the right meaning)
Until or till means 7atta,, that's right,, but notice that 7atta can give other meaning in other places, I can't mention it now,, it needs a special advanced lesson for it.
The last two words, I don't think (merrhelli) is right,, I think you are hearing the wrong thing,, but at least I can say the word (matroos) is colloquial word that means Full of something.
If you need some to hear how to pronounce 7atta go to lessons and search for the lesson (Journy to the zoo) i.e. search for the word (zoo) We've talked about 7atta in that lesson.

Some more doubts:

1. Pronounciation of 'Go' & 'Gold' - Both are like ('zahab')

2. What is the meaning of 'Sheel'?

3. The word Light has many words - 'Noor', 'Khafeefa', 'Adwa' . ... . ..
Which of these is used where: For eg: 1. Light Bulb, torch Light, Bright Light, etc..
2. Light Snack
3. Light (in terms Of weight)

4. What are the words for :
Whenever, Wherever, Anywhere, Anytime, Sometimes, Somewhere, Somehow, Because, Otherwise, If, can, cannot, must, should

(Gold) in Arabic is (d'ahab) and (went) is d'ahaba, there is fat7a in the end of (ذهبَ), but if it comes in the end of the sentence, then the fat7a becomes sokoon and both words will have the same pronunciation.
(Sheel) is colloquial for (carry) or take away.
(Light) in general means (noor) which represents the brightness in general, and it could mean (9'oo2) or (a9'wa2) as you mentioned.
Remember in English, light could mean (something not heavy) too, and here where the word (7'afeef) comes, so the English word here has two meanings.
Wherever: aynama أينما
Anytime: fy ay waqt في أي وقت
Sometimes: a7yanan أحياناَ
Because: Le2anna or besabab
If: id'a إذا
Must: lazem لازم
The rest are not as important as the ones I mentioned above.

(Can) means (yasta6ee3) and (can not) means (la tasta6ee3).. what you’ve been told is right,, but it is more colloquial and actually means (to be able for aqdar) and (not to be able for ma baqdar).
Yes, love is 7ob.. soon we’ll post a lesson about it, keep ur eyes up and search for the word love in the lessons page.
(Mahma jara) is (whatever happens) which is a phrase, so take it as it is.

Also - old means 'kadeem'. But it is generally used for things. What word is used for people like ' Old Man' .....Is it 'Ateeq'?

And how do we pronounce this properly : مستعمل

If you use asta6ee3, then you can say: ana asta6ee3 ta9lee7,, but if you use aqdar, then you need verb after it,, i.e ana aqdar a9alle7.
By they way,, you can drop (ana) because the verb itself indicate that you are the doer.
Driver is sa2eq (سائق) and drive is dependent on the tense,, the past is saaqa
About Old, yes, in Arabic it means several things, for people i.e. old man means rajol kabeer,, so the word kabeer is used which means big too,, and id you want to make it specific for age, then use kabeer bel3omr, where 3omr means (age).
مستعمل is musta3mal,, you need to practice this (3), have a look on the sharepoint,, there are softwares helps you in this.
Good luck

Follow this:
Rich is (3'any), Song is (u3'neyah), Sing is (yo3'anny) and Singer is (mu3'anny).
Count is يعدّ
Choose is يختار
Complain as verb يشكو
and as noun is شكوى
About shoot him,, if you mean by gun, then it means أطلق عليه النار
I care means Ana ahtam or (ahtam) without (ana) is still fine.
Remove is إنزع
I'm Shivering, Ana arta3esh
Surprised is Motafaje2 which is ism maf3ool
Lost is Faqad, Found is Wajad and Search is ba7ath
