Arabic dialects

Learn Arabic dialects with Kaleela

Arabic is a language with deep historical roots, spread on vast regions across the world. So as time passed, it was only natural that the local developed Arabic dialects. All of them have roots in Modern Standard Arabic, but since colloquial Arabic is the “language of the people”, the creators of the Arabic learning app Kaleela believe that spoken language should be learned as well. Here’s why:

  • When you speak a local dialect, you connect to a local more. Modern Standard Arabic is be the language of the media and written communication, but talking in a local dialect makes the interaction with a native more personal.
  • Learning an Arabic dialect is like learning two languages in the same time. Since some words or sentence structures might be different from formal Arabic to spoken Arabic, as a student you might feel you’re learning more than just one language.
  • If you want to speak Arabic language in everyday life situations, to travel, speak with your colleagues if you work in the Middle East, make new friends, then Arabic Dialects would be your best choice.
  • If understand only Modern Standard Arabic and you choose to speak it with natives, they will be able to understand you, but when they speak back, there are high chances they will reply in an Arabic dialect, which might draw confusions.
