The many ways to say “What are you doing?” in Arabic

We recently talked about the difference between Modern Standard Arabic and the spoken dialects. Here’s something that our students have found that illustrates the difference between MSA and what people actually speak. You’ll also notice which dialects are closest to each other: foto

If you are studying Spoken Arabic at ALPS you’ll learn to say “What are you doing?”  in Lebanese and you will be able to communicate in the entire Levant – Notice how similar the Arabic above is in Lebanese, Syrian, Jordanian and Palestinian. We also teach Modern Standard if you want to continue to learn to read and write in Arabic.
