Levantine Spoken Arabic: Intermediate


Adult Enrichment / Languages -
Fall 2021

Please Note: This class was switched to an Intermediate level class on 9.9.2021.  

"Levantine” refers to the spoken variety of Arabic among the Eastern Mediterranean Coast, which includes Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Palestine. More informal than Modern Standard Arabic, this dialect is used in the home, among friends, and has become the chosen language for many television series. Thus it is the version of spoken Arabic that is understood by almost all Arabs.

In this class you will work on improving your conversational skills in situations such as asking about travel and directions, identifying places around a city, renting a hotel room, and many others. We will also review some grammatical concepts and structures needed for these conversations.
