This book idea started when the pandemic hit, students started to struggle to study and some fell behind in their study. In order to tackle this, I initially started to make tutorials on YouTube to help everyone but wanted to make something that, will continue on the same path that I use in my classes by explaining the grammar in easy terms that, everyone will understand.
This book aims to give you the most essential grammar that a learner of the dialect will need to reach to upper intermediate level and other grammatical cases were excluded for a number of reasons of which is sticking to making the book easier to understand.
The book contains approx. 2000 high-frequency vocabulary, 7 essential tenses and 3 most commonly used derivatives in Levantine Arabic.
