Arabic is spoken in so many countries and so many ways! At Taalhuis Amsterdam you can learn Modern Standard Arabic (فصحى / FusHa), Levantine (شامي / Shaamy), Egyptian (مصري /MaSry) and Moroccan!
In the introduction course you’ll learn how to read and write combined with Levantine speaking skills. And in our A1 and A2 courses you can further develop your Levantine speaking skills and work on your knowledge of Modern Standard Arabic at the same time. In this way we aim to teach you the Arabic language the way native speakers experience it: they speak a colloquial variation of Arabic, depending on their region, and they read and understand Modern Standard Arabic (Fusha).
We also offer Egyptian courses, and various dialect courses for higher levels to focus on conversational skills in Egyptian and Levantine, the spoken varieties of Arabic that are commonly understood all over the Arab World. You’ll learn practical phrases for all kinds of situations and you’ll practice these with interactive exercises. If you would like to learn Moroccan Arabic please send us an email!
Below you’ll find the courses that will start in the week of 12 September. Puzzled by the dialects and levels or would you like an intake? Contact us at email@example.com!
