  5. Arabic to Dutch for refugees


Arabic to Dutch for refugees

With our many refugees it would be very nice to have this course, because Duolingo is a great help in learning a language.

Duolingo only teaches "Modern Standard Arabic".
A lot of Arabic refugees in the Netherlands will not be able to understand this.


Many countries speak Arabic as an official language, but not all of them speak it the same way. There are many dialects, or varieties of a language, like Modern Standard Arabic, Egyptian Arabic, Gulf Arabic, Maghrebi Arabic, Levantine Arabic, and many others.
Some of these dialects are so different from each other that speakers have a hard time understanding the other.
