  • We're the ones speaking Arabic.
  • 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.

    For the next few weeks we want to focus on vocabulary useful for discussing current events in the Levant, using media examples. We may cross over a little into fus7a (modern standard Arabic.)

    This week let's work on vocab from this site. Make up some practice sentences and we can have some amusing discussions, like Alex and I did at our last meetup, with help from our esteemed native speakers. If anyone attends who is more advanced, you can practice more serious discussions.

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

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
