Learn Arabic in Lebanon!
Lebanon officially the Republic of Lebanon, is a country in Western Asia, on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east and Israel to the south. Lebanon´s location at the crossroads of the Mediterranean Basin and the Arabian hinterland has dictated its rich, sometimes violent history, and shaped its unique cultural identity of religious and ethnic diversity.
The earliest evidence of civilization in Lebanon dates back more than 7,000 years—predating recorded history. Lebanon was the home of the Phoenicians, a maritime culture that flourished for nearly 2,500 years (3000–539 BC).
Most of Lebanon´s area is mountainous terrain, except for the narrow coastline and the Beqaa Valley, which plays an integral role in Lebanon´s agriculture.
Lebanon has a moderate Mediterranean climate. In coastal areas, winters are generally cool and rainy whilst summers are hot and humid. In more elevated areas, temperatures usually drop below freezing during the winter with frequent, sometimes heavy snow; summers are warm and dry.
Lebanon has fantastic beaches as well as high mountains and skiing. Lebanon´s geography makes it easy to go from the city to the slopes in a matter of just 1–2 hours.
