'Arabi Liblib

Egyptian Colloquial Arabic for the Advanced Learner. 2: Proverbs

Kamal Al Ekhnawy and Jamal Ali

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

While most courses in Egyptian Arabic teach the essentials of syntax, morphology, and vocabulary, this resource book takes the student a step beyond. Intended for the advanced learner of Egyptian Colloquial Arabic who has mastered the basics, this series of three books (see also Volume 1, Adjectives and Descriptions; Volume 3, forthcoming, will feature idiomatic expressions) focuses on colorful expressions used by native speakers. The learner will advance from knowing how to form a good sentence to being able to express his or her thoughts about the ups and downs of daily life using culturally appropriate expressions.
