As mentioned in the podcast, many Arabic speakers speak English. The French influence on North Africa means that many Arabic speakers also speak French. Arabic speakers in Iran and Turkey mean that many Arabic speakers speak Farsi or Turkish as a second language. So many Arabic speakers will answer nacam not only to English, but also to many other languages as well! Do you know any bilingual Arabic speakers? What are the other languages that they speak?

the "cultural insights" section for this lesson states that "Arabic is al-yabaniya (ุงู„ูŠุงุจุงู†ูŠุฉ) although your chances of finding someone who speaks Arabic are very rare." this sounded weird, so I checked, and ุงู„ูŠุงุจุงู†ูŠุฉ (al-yabaniya) actually means Japanese...you may want to fix this before someone starts going around calling Arabic Japanese.

I am studying with pod101 another language but I came here because I really wanted to see how difficult is an absolute beginner here in my own language ??? ..I don't know how old the comments here are and I don't know if this is rude but I read some comments I wanted to reply too.???.

First "g" and "j" in MSA it's read 'j' and not 'g' but generally the pronounciation of alphabets has changed from country to another so in some dialects like us in egypt we pronounce it as "g" in the spoken language and "ู‚" is pronounced as "A " sound as in apple .....no one in Egypt say "j" or "q" except for upper egypt "south" changing the 'q' to 'A' is from the things distinctive to the egyptian dialect and I think the levantine too, many other arabs find this strange as some different words sounds the same like this .. the same goes for other countries regarding several alphabets ..

Second : the verbs tatakallmi and tatakallmin ..as it was answered the difference is due to a grammatical issue and kinda a bit advanced . Tatakallmin " is the original form of the verb ending with "ู† " in certain positions related to i'arab" "ุงุนุฑุงุจ" -not sure if i spelled it correctly in english- the "ู†"is removed .. actually no one cares about that in the spoken language for me I don't know any spoken dialect that keeps the ' ู† ' at the end of the verb it's heavy ...in addition the whole verb won't be pronounced like that even in the form without it... if I will say it I will say "ttkllemi"

Hi Brandon,


You're right. Each Arab country has its own dialect that may or may not be understood by other Arab countries.

Is there certain dialects for different countries? For example: Syrian Arabic, Egyptian Arabic, Iraqi, Moroccan, Sudanese, Jordanian, Lebanese and so on?
