About This Class

Hello everyone,

Here is another course I put together for those who want to learn some Arabic songs and some new Arabic words.

This is Colloquial Egyptian Arabic and these are some famous Egyptian songs.

I recommend to google the song title to listen to the original. It will make a big difference.

I am attaching a file in the class project section with a list of the songs and the lyrics in Arabic, English and also how to pronounce it. 

Don't forget to rate this course if you enjoyed it or if you found it useful. 

I also welcome your suggestions.
