Beginning Conversational Arabic: Levantine Dialect (Online)

This class is designed to demystify Arabic and to get you started speaking. It’s intended for those who want to travel or do business in Israel/Palestine, Lebanon, or Jordan or are interested in Arabic cultures. You’ll learn the basics of communication in the Levantine Arabic dialect without needing to learn the alphabet. Find out how to introduce yourself, tell time, speak about your family and academic and professional background, get directions, as well as how to order authentic Arab dishes and haggle for gifts in the Arab souq (market). In each class you will learn basic skills and then have a chance to practice using role-play conversation scenarios and drill common dialogues in groups. Neal Feldman is a proficient Arabic speaker and translator who has lived and studied language and Middle Eastern studies in the region.
