Elementary Episode: My Life, Lesson 1

My Life, Lesson 1

In this episode you hear Amani tell you about her family. By the end of this lesson you will be able to use family-related vocabulary and phrases to talk about your family in spoken Levantine Arabic. We have always found it confusing how in English there is only one word to refer to cousins and two words for nephews and nieces. It seemed so confusing as to how to explain whose children they are and whether from your maternal or parental side. We wonder, if your mother tongue is English, you have the same, but maybe the other way round? Do we seem to have too many words for cousins, nephews and nieces? 

Learn everyday Levantine Arabic by listening to our podcasts that are organized in lesson series form. Every lesson series includes ten episodes on a specific topic and they come with worksheets to improve listening comprehension and broaden your lexicon of spoken Arabic. All the episodes in the lesson series My Life for elementary level learners are divided into different subtopics ranging from family and friends to home and work. 

Not only will you improve your listening comprehension and develop your vocabulary but also learn about our culture here in Amman, Jordan. Each recording comes with an audio script and interactive exercises to help you understand and use the target language highlighted in the accompanied worksheet.   

Kindly note that all the learning materials are free and available for you to download and copy for educational use only. You may not redistribute, sell or place these materials on any other web site without written permission.

Thank you so much for listening.
