The Lebanese Language Center [abcLeb]
abcLeb was founded in 2003 to provide resources for teaching and preserving the Lebanese language worldwide. The main purpose behind starting the center was to teach Lebanese to those who want to speak it. With time, the number of those who wanted to speak Lebanese has increased as well as those who actually learned Lebanese with abcLeb. Our goal continues to be teaching people modern Lebanese that is spoken by about 5 million persons around the world, but understood by about 400 million.
Teaching and Resources
Along their journey of providing teaching and research material, the founders of the center developed the Lebanese Latin Letters System (LLL) to write Lebanese with modern Latin alphabet. The system was finalized with the Lebanese Language Institute in 2009. Also, lessons, guide, programs, graphs, audio, applications, and other resources such as computer programs and phone applications were developed to help studying and teaching the language.
