Hi, does the word الشـارع mean "Street"?

Could you please add this to the Arabic dictionary?

Hi guys,

@miqsh,

Thanks for your feedback, its very appreciated, hope you enjoy all the lessons and find them as useful as the others and more !


@ Larry,

Egyptian Arabic is different from Syrian Arabic, but its the most widely spoken and understood dialect in the Arabic world with no exception, this is due to the media ( movies, drama series, songs, programs , talk shows.... ), Egypt ranks as the most productive in this field, plus now we have many books, some of the newspapers that is also written in Egyptian Arabic, so its becoming more written as spoken.

If you use it with your friends, no matter where they`re from, as long they are Arabic, they will understand perfectly and even reply using it, so go ahead and give it a try !


Best of luck !

This is very good. Is this the same as Syrian arabic? I have a lot of Syrian friends and I want to be able to speak to them in an arabic that they would understand.


Thanks,
