This book is totally comprehensive and superb. It will teach you the Levantine language needed in everyday life. The Levantine used is that of educated people in Damascus, which would be understood not only elsewhere in Syria but also in the broader linguistic area of "Levantine Arabic," which encompasses present-day Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and the Arab-speaking population of Israel. It uses thousands of real-life examples of sentences in Levantine Arabic and demonstrates how words are used; it also contains a very good dictionary for the Levantine dialect. It is designed to be a guide to speaking Arabic on a conversational level, and is replete with colloquialisms, figures of speech, idioms and common phrases using the word in question. The Arabic terms are presented in transcription. This is the book to use if you care about learning Levantine Arabic.
