Description:

This lesson teaches students Arabic greetings, how to use them, when to use them, and explains how people exchange greetings in Arabic speaking countries.

www.criticallanguageservice.com

Greetings in Arabic are very important and fairly formulaic.  The Middle East places a greater importance on the formality of greetings, unlike in America, it is considered very rude to skip a greeting even if you see the person every day and they are a close friend.  Greetings in Middle Eastern countries between members of the same sex tend to be more physical than those exchanged by people in English speaking countries. This lesson explains all the details.
