Does modern Arabic apply in Israel?
Hey ya'll. I'm israeli, and I'm learning the Arabic course on Duolingo. My question is: does the course apply in Israel, meaning, is the dialect spoken in Israel or is it a different dialect such as Levant dialect or a different dialect.. Btw, does anyone have an app suggestion to actually learn how to speak phrases rather than just learning how to read? Thanks a lot. شُكراً
Shalom Shlomomm. The Arabic course on duolingo is standard written Arabic which is a great place to start especially for reading and writing and will be useful also in Israel. The accent sound more gulf-like than Palestinian. Levant/Palestinian dialect is quite close to standard Arabic, but you could look for courses on Youtube, and eventually go visit Nazareth, have a drink and talk to people :)
Thank you so much it helped me a lot, I'll eventually get a drink at Nazareth and enjoy a conversation in Arabic
Are you Palestinian ?! Of course there are dialects, such as the Syrian dialect, the Palestinian dialect, the Jordanian dialect, etc.
But before you learn dialects, you should learn Standard Arabic, because it is the foundation and to understand the dialects.
Hello, can anyone tell me the meaning of (ya'll), I saw it in a lot of discussions, but I can't guess the meaning??
Unlike most languages, English doesn't have a second-person plural. There is no way to tell whether You is for one person or several. So many English dialects come up with terms that are not official, but used.
