Advanced Episode: Sustainable Tourism, Lesson 7

Sustainable Tourism, Lesson 7

In this sustainable-tourism-themed lesson series you find visual and structural support for Levantine Arabic at an advanced level. We are very much into alternative tourism in Jordan because it is widely available and we love to support our local economy. Over the next ten lessons we are going to tell you about our country's natural beauty and the places we like to visit.

This lesson series is for advanced level learners and focuses on listening comprehension and vocabulary development. In this lesson series you find ten recorded texts that are visually and structurally supported to help you engage with tourism-related subtopics. Before you listen, read the introduction and engage with the images to activate schemata around the subtopics. This way you prepare yourself for targeted listening.

The English texts are not literal translations, but there to help you with cultural and conceptual understanding of the original Arabic texts. At this level, you would want to try to avoid them as much as possible and only fall back on them if absolutely necessary; this way you immerse yourself with spoken Levantine Arabic and push your second language acquisition into a higher gear.

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.

Salaam,
