About DaliaI'm looking for anyone who is interested in improving his/her Arabic or English. My native Arabic dialect is the Palestinian Levantine dialect, but I'm also fluent in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). If you're interested in language lessons in Arabic, they are 20 ITC extra.
I'm originally Palestinian, but I grew up in Jordan before moving to the US as a child (for this reason, English is my second mother tongue). Having never lived in Palestine/Israel, and having been exposed to other Levantine dialects while growing up, has naturally affected the way I speak. What I speak is therefore mostly Palestinian, but with some Jordanian influence.
I'm a graduate student in NYC pursuing a master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies. While studying, I have tutored and taught Palestinian Arabic. In addition, I also studied MSA in school as well as on the college level, and thus I am fluent in it as well.
