Shwayy ‘An Haali (شْوَيّ عن حالي šwayy 3an ɧāli A Little About Myself) will be of tremendous help to independent language learners who want to develop their conversational skills and increase their Levantine (Lebanese and Syrian) Arabic vocabulary.

Very simply, Shwayy ‘An Haali presents the results of a survey given to 10 Levantine Arabic speakers, five from Lebanon and five from Syria. Each of the 30 sections in the book begins with a question from the survey followed by the 10 responses and a breakdown of the vocabulary. Each section concludes with a page where you are encouraged to give your own answer to the question using newly learned words and phrases.

The book has been designed in such a way that it can be an effective learning tool for learners at all levels, with glossaries of even the most basic words for beginners, and unvoweled texts and Modern Standard Arabic translations for more advanced learners.

    I love this resource, I have the book and the flash cards. I highly recommend getting both! There is nothing like this out there just giving regular conversation of regular people talking in the regular accent. Each question is great for using in real conversation. This resource has helped me greatly with my listening and speaking skills.
