This course aims to improve the level of your Egyptian language skills. You will learn local sentences and phrases that you can try out on your next trip to Egypt. You will be taught to speak the Egyptian dialect with confidence and your listening skills will be put to the test.
The Egyptian dialect is the most widely used dialect in the Arab world because Egyptian films, soap operas, and songs are very popular throughout the Arab world. It is the dialect of around 100 million people, an everyday language, the language of advertising and entertainment, and an important part of Egyptian culture.
With dozens of audio recordings, we deal with common everyday situations in four main topics:
Making acquaintances, everyday routines, places, and directions. The pupil learns formal and informal expressions, numbers and time, the linguistic present and future (+negotiation), the declination of the form for the verb “have” and the imperative.
Each course is divided into 16 sessions (1.5 hours each).
In each session, an audio file about an everyday situation is played, a new grammar rule is dealt with, some exercises are worked on and cultural backgrounds are presented. For students with level A1.1 (no previous knowledge), the first three-session are used for the Arabic alphabet and pronunciation.
Linguistic or other prior knowledge is not required.
At the end of the course, you will be able to read and write Arabic letters. You can introduce yourself and have simple conversations with other people to get to know them.
In this language level we cover the following grammar:
Feminine / Masculine, pronouns, demonstratives, numbers, genitive connections, question words, prepositions, attribute adjectives, and negation of nouns. Vocabulary about hobbies, occupation, greetings, and social status are dealt with.
