Active and Passive Participles in Levantine Arabic

When speaking Arabic, you'll need to be able to use the active and passive participle forms of verbs in various situations.


  1. It would be helpful to provide all the conjugations (I, you, he, they etc.) for each verb, not just one for each. It would also be helpful to explain any rules for past tense conjugations if there are any.

  2. I agree with nicole . I find this lesson quite useless , why should i be interested in learning how to say “i went” without even knowing how to say “he went” ? In my humble opinion you should focus more on the listening part ( Faust series is extremely good) , since these kind of lessons do not provide any significant information for an absolute beginner and they are too easy for someone who already speaks a little bit.
