For teaching Arabic Grammar “جامع الدروس العربية” by Mustafa Ghalayini will be used. This book has three parts and includes the most important Arabic grammar lessons.
Colloquial Arabic is the Arabic spoken by Arabs in their day-to-day lives. It differs across countries and across regions of the same country. Every Arabic-speaking person has his/her own dialect. And a very important part of Learn Arabic online for adults
The extent and ease of unambiguousness depend on two factors:
- The geographical location belonging to the dialect
- The level of exposure to each dialect
Qarabic Academy takes pride in providing courses in Egyptian Colloquial Arabic. The significance of the dialect is that most of the Arabic people are aware of it as they are all exposed to it via popular TV programs, films and documentaries produced in Egypt.
This course is particularly for those who are fascinated with Egyptian culture and they want to travel to Cairo and blend in with the Egyptian culture or are fond of tourism in Egypt and its famous cities like Alexandria, Hurghada, Sharm el Sheikh, Matrouh, Luxor, Aswan, North Coast, and Marina.
It is less complicated than classical Arabic as it has little use of grammer. It only requires some vocabulary and sentence formation. Therefore Qarabic chose the “Aneestoona” curriculum for this purpose. Students learn basic vocabulary of colloquial Egyptian and then trains in practical daily dialogues.
For example, such dialogues include “At the airport”, “In the market”, “A taxi driver”, “Visiting the doctor”, and “At the police station.” The teacher will assist you in surmounting your issued by working through the dialogues with you and training you on the correct pronunciation, as well as explaining the correct meaning of the sentence and the various situations that we use it in.
So the book and the curriculum will be a catalyst or part of the lecture, but not all of it because the basic principle is the dialogue and speech training with your teacher.
