The Levantine Dialect

If you would like to start conversing in a local dialect, we recommend learning a central dialect.  Here are a few reasons for you to learn the Levantine dialect:

  • The Levantine dialect is very close to the Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), so if you’ve already learned (MSA), or are a student who is still learning it, then the Levantine dialect will be extremely easy to pick up,

  • The Levantine dialect is easy to learn and if you’re planning on travelling or interacting with other Arabic speakers whether for pleasure or business then the Jordanian dialect can be learned within a short amount of time,   and can be easily understood by any Arabic speaker,

  • Learning the Levantine dialect will encourage you to travel and explore the Arab world.
