Since Standard Arabic is not generally spoken in everyday life, it also makes sense to learn the Syrian dialect. “Syrian dialect” is an umbrella term for various similar dialects used in Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan and it is understood throughout the Arab world. The majority of Arabs in Berlin also speak this dialect, so it can be used in everyday life in Berlin. Learners of Standard Arabic often have difficulty with
Arabic-speakers, who usually do not answer in standard Arabic, but in dialect. A dialect course is therefore highly recommended for those
involved in social work, education, medicine or aid organizations. This would allow them to react and engage spontaneously in everyday situations and to build a sustainable basis of trust.
Alphabet and completion of A2 (Syrian dialect) or knowledge of Arabic sufficient for the course.
At the end of the course, learners should be able to express ideas related to familiar topics and areas of personal interest. They should also be able to report experiences and events, to describe dreams, hopes, and goals, as well as to offer brief reasons and explanations for plans and viewpoints.
