'to like' and 'to love' (human nature!) 6. speaking about hobbies and free time (great way to make conversation) 7. reserving and ordering in an Arabic restaurant (love eating out!) 8. time-related subjects: saying the time, making appointments, checking schedules, and saying when something took place.
