It is not often I find a YouTube channel offering clear language use and topical interviews based on issues that are useful for an advanced learner of the Arabic language, and even more rare finding some that are for the Egyptian dialect!
I have highlighted in the past a Jordanian group called LOL Blogging, and believe they have a really great webisodes students can turn to for language exposure. The video above reminded me of the quality I found with LOL blogging and hope to utilise more of them in future lessons.
But for today, if you have 15 minutes or so you can watch the entire video above, but be sure to listen for the list of words below and see if you can catch how she is using them in context. You can find many more videos of this quality at Words of Women.
