Shway Shway – Courtney’s Favourite Word

My name is Courtney. I’m from Toronto and my favourite Arabic word is ‘Shway Shway’ which is also a phrase. I’ve learned it the context that of ‘slowly slowly’ because I heard it when a friend of mine would call a cab for me to an airport. Said that to a cab driver. I was in Lebanon at the time and so I learned about five different Arabic words. I was fortunate that i can use French or English there as well. I felt like that it was a good one that can be used in a few different contexts.
