AUDIO SAMPLE

The stories in Mido: In Egyptian Arabic are lighthearted and easy to follow, but also engaging, all the while presenting the lively language and culture of Egyptians today. However, these stories are aimed at adult language-learners—and not children—as secrets and lies and crime make appearances.

 

The first chapter serves as an introduction to Mido and his family, as we take a peak at the household’s typical morning. Mido’s father, mother, brother, and sister each feature in a chapter showing a day in their lives. And Mido, our hero, stars in the remaining chapters.

    I read the first chapter and it’s so cute. Several new words for me but I could figure out most of them from the English paragraphs. the audio is fabulous, clear and fun to listen to when reading.

    Thank you so much for this amazing resource. It’s very difficult to find extensive listening material with transscripts in colloquial Egyptian (or any other dialect). The audio is very crisp and the voices of the various characters are easy to distinguish. There are also a lot of expressions that you won’t find in a textbook, and cultural information (Nesto? french fries for breakfast? who knew?).
