Lebanese Arabic Voices is designed to provide intermediate and advanced students of Arabic with an opportunity to hear and study authentic Levantine Arabic as it is spoken by native speakers today. Improve your comprehension of Levantine Arabic by using its audio component alongside the guided exercises in the book. Unlike the scripted materials read by voice actors used in many coursebooks, Lebanese Arabic Voices offers dozens of audio essays spoken naturally and off-the-cuff by individuals from around Lebanon.

Each segment consists of:

  • accompanying audio tracks available for free download below.
  • vocabulary and comprehension exercises to sharpen your listening skills and increase how much you can understand
  • in-chapter answers to the exercises (no having to flip back and forth to the back of the book)
  • verbatim transcripts of the audio with side-by-side English translations.

Six native speakers from around Lebanon and abroad have each contributed six audio essays on various topics, which in total make up the 36 segments found in this book. The contributors were recorded speaking naturally and spontaneously, without reading prepared texts. The audio essays were then transcribed in Arabic script and translated into English. Studying these texts is a unique opportunity to better understand the patterns, usage, and idiosyncrasies of Arabic as spoken by Lebanese today.

    Bought the hard copy on Amazon. Really like this series, great way to hear authentic voices and stories. Would love to see the Tunisian version, that would be amazing and round out the Tunisian books available already; Tunisian Mido, Tunisian Vocabulary and the 5 Tunisian readers. I would be really interested to hear Tunisian voice essays in this Arabic Voices format. The Syrian and Egyptian Voices are really very good too, same with the Arabic Voices 1 and 2.

    Great resource from Matthew! I would say that the Lebanese, Syrian, Egyptian, Arabic voices series in general are the best series on this website! Would love to see something similar for the Persian language !!
