Mostafa Ahmed hosts a new 32-part series of free video lessons to help you with the materials in the Arabic Voices books.
In Arabic Voices, participants from various countries share about themselves and their cultures speaking in their local dialects in some segments and in MSA in others. A principal feature of Arabic Voices is to show how well Arabs speak MSA spontaneously and how they sometimes even make mistakes and mix in their local dialects.
Mostafa Ahmed takes us through every MSA segment, pointing out interesting grammatical and lexical points (and speakers’ mistakes). The videos have Arabic and English subtitles, and the transcripts appear under the video for you to follow along with or print out.
You do need the book to reference the lines from the segments that Mostafa Ahmed is talking about. But his video lessons themselves are available for free on the Lingualism website.
The 32 video lessons for Books 1 and 2 are now available. You can access the lessons by clicking below or by navigating to the Arabic Voices books in the Shop and scrolling down to the Resources section. We hope you find the lessons a useful supplement to studying the books on your own! Enjoy!
