The focus of the clip we’re studying today is healthy lifestyle, particularly veganism that is being promoted by a Saudi vlogger, who is probably one of the first very few vegans in the Arab world who documented their experience publicly.

Note about the dialect used in the clip: Although the interviewer and interviewee originally speak different dialects, Lebanese and Saudi, but they both use a pretty much a neutral or white dialect/Arabic اللهجة البيضاء. This should make it fairly easy to follow. However, the content is very specific, and this post is a perfect opportunity for advanced learners to improve their spoken Arabic listening skills.

Now, let’s listen to the clip. Make sure you listen to all of it!
