If you want to learn arabic what would be the accent that you'd like to master ?
I don't really have much interest to master any right now, but my favorite currently is Egyptian and I do want to learn most, if not all, of the dialects at least to a point of understadning.
Well I wanted to learn arabic and chose the egyptian dialect. I still love it! :)
there are other interesting accents you know !
wew i advice everyone to study the tunisan accent coz it is the most nearly one from the mother tongue
Ghada, How many accents of Arabic language are there?
Every Arabic country has one of it's own ! and in that one country every region has it's own ! but mostly : North Africa like Moroco, algeria, tunisia and Lybia have some resemblance in the accent ! but not quite! Egypt on the other hand has it's own accent ! they miss pronounce some of the alphabet that's why it sounds easier and more fun to learn. there is also the Arabian Peninsula : Kuwait , Bahrain , Qatar, United Arabe Emirates , Oman , Yemen and Saudi Arabia And I add Iraq : they share similarities in the accent . a very funny one ! and then there is Syria, Lebanon and Jordan they have a cute accent that is mainly attractive .
Thanks Gada for interesting information. Behi barcha :)
OMG Nacir ! you know " behi barcha " !
Yes, I learnt some tunisian arabic, like chnuwa hawalik?
When I was in 9th class there were two optional subjects, Biology and Arabic. First I joined the biology class but then I changed the subject and took Arabic. In the final exam I got 90/100 marks. The only question I could not answer was some conjugation which I did not know (we had to learn these conjugations by heart). So out of 10 questions I solved 9 correctly. But our teacher did not have a pure Arabic accent. In Urdu, we do not distinguish between sounds of Thā, Sād and Sīn. Similar is the case with Dhāl, Zāy, Zā and Dād - all sounding similar. And we used to read in the Urdu accent :)
