Levantine Arabic Weeknight Study Group

Please note: we have changed the day of this meetup from Tuesday to Wednesday. If you really want to attend but can never come on Wednesdays, please comment and we will see if we can work something out!

This is a meetup that focuses on practicing the spoken dialect(s) of Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Jordan. The goal is to support one another in learning and improving, not to offer a comprehensive Arabic class. Native or experienced speakers are welcome to come and help or get some conversation practice, and others are welcome to come and learn.

This week, we'll play the fun vocabulary game that Omar brought us last week (and which we all enjoyed), and Rand will bring us a short story to listen to and/or read and translate. Thanks, guys!

Don't forget to listen to plenty of Arabic in your spare time! Immerse yourself!

    I put together this list of words on memrise.com a while back to practice with. Hope somebody else will find it useful, and if you have any suggestions I'll include more things over time, hopefully subject based.

    مرحبا لوريل. انا و عمر جهزنا لعبة الاحرف بس انا ما عم بلاقي قصة حلوة وقصيرة. مرة من المرات ميس اقترحت لعبة حلوة. كلنا مع بعض ألفنا قصة، كل حدا حكى شوي. كتير كانت حلوة وانبسطنا. ممكن نعيدها بكرة وممكن كمان نقرأ من كتاب النكت تبعك. شو رأيك؟
