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 I haven't taught you before, and you're planning to book an Arabic-language session with me (whether it's in dialect or MSA), **please contact me first!** We need to discuss expectations first before we decide on a date/time for the lesson. (That way, you can get the most out of your lesson, and you'll know if I'm the right fit for you). If you're interested in language lessons (rather than speaking practice) in Arabic, they are 70 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 have a M.A. in Middle Eastern Studies, and a B.A. in German, European Studies, and Italian. 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.
