This class begins with learning the alphabet in Modern Standard Arabic AND the Lebanese Dialect. This way you’ll see how the Lebanese pronunciation of the Arabic letters differs from Modern Standard Arabic and take this knowledge with you wherever and however you use Arabic in the future.
As you study the alphabet, you’ll also learn important Lebanese Arabic phrases and vocabulary that are spoken everyday in Beirut. You’ll be able to introduce yourself, get around Beirut easier and have basic conversations by the end of the class.
This will be a small, personal class with only 3-5 students, so reserve your place today.
