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 Arabic (الدارجة / Darija).
Our Levantine (the dialect of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine) courses combine dialect (speaking skills) and MSA. You 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, a spoken variety of Arabic that is commonly understood all over the Arab World, also because a lot of films and music come from Egypt. You’ll learn practical phrases for all kinds of situations and you’ll practice these with interactive exercises.
For Moroccan Arabic we currently only offer private lessons (one to one, but also small groups or in company). Send us an email if you’re interested!
New courses will start in April! You can find the schedule below.
