I hope the arabicpod team can mention which dialect is used as it can get confusing. Pls list whether its Standard Modern Arabic or Egyptian or levant, as its quite different.

Hi Ivana,


Glad that you're enjoying our website! We hope to see you often here!


We have lessons in MSA, Moroccan, and Egyptian dialects (which should be indicated in the series or lesson title).


Here is an example:

In this series, you’ll follow our cast of characters through daily life in the Middle East. You’ll learn how to make a polite request, compare two items, have a casual conversation on the phone and much more. You will also learn cultural tips and stories from our hosts. (This series is recorded in Standard Arabic.)


Let us know if you have any further questions.

Hello,


I love what I am seeing so far! Thank you for your efforts to put all of these resources together so that I can learn. However, I was wondering how I can find/focus in the Modern Standard Arabic Lessons.


Please let me know.


شكراً

Hi Ayman,


I absolutely agree. We are looking for ways to do that, but for now you have to look at the lesson description to tell which dialect the series is in.


Thank you for your feedback!
