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.
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.
