LookLex Learn Arabic - Lesson Three
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Lesson three of the LookLex website concentrates on common greetings and standard expressions one uses when meeting or receiving others for the first time. Entitled "meeting people," the lesson includes voiceovers in Arabic that correspond to each greeting/expression. The brief grammar section pays particular attention to verbs not found in Arabic that seem confusing at first for an English-speaking student of Arabic.
