Five reasons to learn Tunisian Arabic

Tunisian Arabic is not the most famous dialect of Arabic. In fact, it is not famous at all.
Many people choose to learn either Egyptian or Shami dialects because they believe that these are the most useful AKA the most spoken and understood.
While it is true that these dialects are useful, they might not be the best option to learn if you are interested in North Africa but that's not the only reason why you should learn a North African dialect.
Here are five reasons why you should learn a North African dialect, Tunisian Arabic for instance:

1- You will also learn some French:

Tunisian Arabic uses a lot of words from French and many Tunisians speak the language fluently. By learning Tunisian Arabic, you will also be able to learn a little bit of French and why not? Maybe you can also learn both languages at the same time.

2- The Maghreb is a culturally and ethnically diverse region :

We are considered Arabic because we speak the language but we are actually a mosaic of different ethnic and cultural groups : Jewish, Amazigh, Punic, European and many more.
We have a very rich heritage that was influenced by many civilizations that came across this land over thousands of years such as the Romans, The

3- It is actually very easy:

Forget about the different "you", one for feminine and one for masculine and one for dual. You are only going to need 7 pronouns ( I, you, he she, we , they)
Furthermore, its grammar is really simple and sentence structure is quiet flexible, there are just two tenses to learn ( Present and Past) and the rest is constructed easily through certain structures and conjunction and particles.
For example to create the future all you need to do is ass : بش to the present and you are all set!

4- Politics and society are worth studying:

Tunisia was the first country that started the Arab Spring in 2011 and has continued to grow politically since then. It had two successful legislative elections and one successful presidential election.
Tunisia is also very rich culturally thanks to its long history that can be traced back to 10.000 BC.

5- Tunisia is one the best destinations for a relaxing and fun vacation:

5- Tunisia is one the best destinations for a relaxing and fun vacation:t is also close to Europe, so you can also plan a trip to Italy, Malta or France on your vacation.
People are hospitable and the food is delicious and there are so many beautiful places to see such as Dougga and El Jem's Ampitheatre.

I love working as a teacher. This job allows me to meet new people and I feel very happy when I see my students make progress. In addition to teaching, I like reading, learning languages myself and watching movies. I recently started learning Android Development and I feel really excited about it. The topics I enjoy talking about are music, art, movies, literature, history, spirituality and health and nutrition. I consider myself to be creative and innovative and I am always learning new things whether for my job or personal pleasure. In addition to teaching, I work as a translator and I have worked with several researcher, film makers and journalists. Among my clients were university professors and Phd students from King's College London, Manchester University, London School of Economics and Political Science, Skye Fitzgerald whose documentary : Life Boat was nominated for the Oscar's in 2019. I have 7 years' experience teaching languages online. While much of my experience has been in teaching adults, I enjoy teaching children as well. I think that the online format is ideal for children because of the different tools that can be use to make the lesson interactive. Adults can benefit from this as well! My students describe me as full of energy, encouraging and creative. Being a language learner myself, I understand the challenges that my students may have and I believe that empathy and encouragement are the best way to help my students overcome any obstacles they might face. My Lessons & Teaching Style I use a variety of tools in my lessons according to the student's level and needs. 1- For children and absolute beginners, I use whiteboards an applications such as paddle in order to make the lesson engaging and interactive. This allows me to gamify the lesson and achieve learning goals while allowing students to have fun. 2- For adults who wish to take a test or learn the language formally. We use a textbook + google drive to write notes about the things we cover. I also use google classroom to organize the contents of the class and give students homework. 3- For conversation practice, I choose a supporting text, video or selection of quotes on which to base the conversation.
