ALPS Spoken Lebanese Book Volume 1

Lebneini w 2aktar Volume 1

This book focuses on helping you learn the Arabic you need to meet people, get around Beirut and to have basic conversations.

Here are some examples of the Arabic survival skills you will have after about 60 class hours with Spoken Levantine Volume 1:

  • Introduce yourself
  • Greetings and goodbyes
  • Ask and understand directions to places in Beirut
  • Asking for prices and buying food
  • Get a taxi (or service)
  • Tell someone your phone number or what time it is
  • Use polite expressions to build relationships

 

This book continues to use Arabic and the phonetic alphabet for the first five chapters. After the 5th lesson, only the Arabic script is used.
vowels

Lebanese pronounce their vowels in a unique way, so seeing the words written out phonetically helps you sound more Lebanese from the start.

 

Some basic sentences don’t need a verb in Arabic, so we start with these:
this is

You’ll also be able to ask questions like: “Where are you from?” or “Is this your phone?” (These questions don’t use a verb in Arabic either)

 

After non-verbal sentences, you’ll learn to use some of the most common verbs in the present tense:

  • to do
  • to work
  • to eat
  • to drink
  • to understand
  • and more!

With every verb you’ll learn nouns and adjectives that are commonly used with them.

 

And as in very book,  we’ll teach you some expressions that are truly Lebanese:

lebanese phrases

 

Family is important, so we cover that in depth in Volume 1 as well:
