This is a meetup that focuses on learning and practicing the spoken dialect(s) of Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Jordan. Native or experienced speakers are welcome to come and help or get some conversation practice, and others are welcome to come and learn. ًWe are using the downloadable textbook Syrian Colloquial Arabic as a companion to this meetup, but it is not required.
This week, we'll be working on our verbs and prepositions. We'll also do some spoken practice and learning on the subject of family. And, of course, we'll enjoy the ambiance (and food or tea/coffee) at lower Greenville's new Lebanese restaurant, Qariah. We will be indoors, where no smoking is allowed.
Don't forget to listen to plenty of Arabic in your spare time! Immerse yourself!
