Thanks, I’d really like to see a Levantine or Eastern Arabic course.
I’ve been learning MSA for six years and have lived and worked in Jordan. There are loads of great MSA courses for independent study out there. But books about dialect usually only cover a very basic level and there are very few. So you’d been doing your members a real service by producing beginners to advanced level dialect courses with audio. I wonder if you could look to develop a comprehensive course in Palestinian or Jordanian and then, at a more advanced level, start introducing the different common nouns / verb conjugations that exist so learners can adapt their dialect and still understand and be understood by speakers from different cities and countries e.g. main differences between Beiruiti/ Damascence/ Jerusalem/ Galileean/ Gazan dialects, rural verses urban pronounciation, and the “women’s and men’s accent” difference that applies in Jordan.
All UK universities offering Arabic degrees with a year abroad now go to Jordan. Syria was once the gold standard and Lebanon and Egypt were popular for a year or so after Syria stopped being an option but insurance companies won’t cover either country for large univeristy parties now and haven’t for a long time, so Jordanian/ Palestinian would be really helpful for your UK audience as British students have been going to Amman for about five years and the signs suggest that’s the way it will remain for some time.
Many thanks شكراً جزيلاً!
