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 :)
