One of the most popular actresses speaking Arabic is Natalie Portman. The actress starring in movies like “Black Swan” and “V for Vendetta” is a natural language learner also speaking Japanese, German, French, English and Hebrew. Regarding Arabic, she probably chose to learn the language because of her heritage. She was born in Jerusalem, Israel, in 1981 and she later moved to the United States to become a movie star. Surprisingly, Salma Hayek speaks Arabic as well. Not many people know this, but Salma is half Arab with her father being Lebanese so she had her own Arabic teacher at home.

Thanks for your helpful posts Donovan. I just started my Arabic language learning journey a couple of months ago. I’m taking an intensive Arabic course at the New School University in New York. Our teacher is Palestinian, so we are learning the spoken Levantine dialect, but also covering MSA for reading and writing. A friend of mine at another university learned only MSA and then went to Jordan on vacation, where locals would often laugh at him when he spoke because it sounded so unnaturally high-falutin’. Haha

Learn how to use an Arabic dictionary. Words in Arabic dictionaries are normally listed under their three-letter roots. So you would look for istiqbaal ("reception") under "q" because the root letters are q-b-l. Getting used to this takes a little practice but it is not particularly difficult because additions to the roots follow set patterns. Something similar happens in English: "unaccustomed", for example, is actually "un-a-custom-ed".
Congratulations! You’ve decided to learn Arabic. This is a challenging but rewarding endeavor. Arabic is the sixth most spoken language in the world, with nearly 420 million people speaking it worldwide. Learning a new language is always a big undertaking, but when the new language doesn’t share a root with your native tongue, it’s even more difficult.
Colloquial Arabic. If you are planning on living in the Arab World or dealing with a specific Arab region or country, Modern Standard Arabic on its own is unlikely to meet all your needs. Arabs speak regional dialects as their mother tongue, and the differences between dialects can be significant enough to cause mutual unintelligibility. Broadly speaking, there are five broad families of dialects, each with sub-dialects according to country, city, neighbourhood, and even religion: Gulf Arabic, Mesopotamian Arabic, Levantine Arabic, Egyptian Arabic, and Maghrebi Arabic.

Since the idea of the Arabic Online Program was first conceived, the Saudi Electronic University has deemed it essential to prepare a standardized test to measure language skills for the increasing number of Arabic learners around the world. One of the major challenges was the lack of an up-to-date and comprehensive standardized test for Arabic learners, similar to standardized tests for other languages around the world, that are based on precise standards to achieve defined goals. The thoroughness of this Standardized Arabic Test, which has been prepared according to international standards of measuring language competence, is based on a deep understanding of the Arabic language system and a deeper understanding of contemporary language teaching theories, especially with respect to skills measurement and evaluation. After careful analysis of the latest methods in teaching and evaluating a second language, the best international practices were adapted within the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CEFR), which is the international evaluation of linguistic skills. The general theoretical framework and methodology for teaching and evaluating second language acquisition... [-]
Learn and memorize the Quran accurately with scholars from Al-Azhar University. Learn the meaning of the verses and the reasons behind revealing them. Quran Memorization focuses on completing the memorization of the Book of Allah in the shortest time with high accuracy and precision with scholars from Al-Azhar University who carry one or more Ijazaah.
The complete study of classical Arabic involves several sciences, all of which are covered in our tutorials. Here you will find tutorials and useful exercises that will improve your reading (قراءة), writing (رسم الخط), pronunciation (تجويد), lexicology (لغة) and vocabulary (مفردات), grammar (نحو) and syntax, morphology (صرف), etymology (اشتقاق), rhetoric (بلاغة), poetry (عروض)

In this online Quranic Arabic course, you will be taught the various tajweed rules and have practice reciting the Quran. Specifically, you will get to learn the verses and what each word within them means. You can click on any word in the chapter to hear it spoken and to get its translation. A color-coded tajweed rule key will also be available to you for every word. You will also hear an explanation of why each tajweed rule is present for each word.


Qibla (Paid Subscription) - Unlike Bayyinah, Qibla is an actual online school where you attend live online courses every week in whatever subject you are taking (they have a lot).  And when you sign up for a course, the live sessions are recorded and stored on the site, so you can access them if you miss a class. However, since Qibla offers a variety of courses, such as Arabic, tafsir, history, tajweed, and law, they will tend to support certain methodologies and beliefs over others, like Sufism. Although a lot of their content is religiously neutral, I would stay away from the courses dealing with things like tasawwuf, unless it fits in with your beliefs. But the Arabic and Qur'an courses are fantastic, and really help a beginner get used to all the grammar rules.

In other words – your words, advices and thoughts about language and culture deeply touched my heart on this particular Friday morning 🙂 Hopefully for many more. These experiences have changed my life completely, and I’m so grateful that you’re sharing these thoughts, helping to establish a new image/mind set of what a type of experience learning a language could really be.

Bayyinah (Paid Subscription) - Many people know about this program, but the thing about its online Qur'an and Arabic courses (like Arabic With Husna) is that they are designed to be done on your own time. This means that, unless you join the Bayyinah classes on campus, there are no live online classes available where you are forced to do weekly assignments or chat with a teacher about your progress. But the online courses are great either way, and they are neutral in terms of religion (they don't support one group or another).


The Qur'an ("Qor-Ann") is a Message from Allah (swt) to humanity. It was transmitted to us in a chain starting from the Almighty Himself (swt) to the angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad (saw). This message was given to the Prophet (saw) in pieces over a period spanning approximately 23 years (610 CE to 632 CE). The Prophet (saw) was 40 years old when the Qur'an began to be revealed to him, and he was 63 when the revelation was completed. The language of the original message was Arabic, but it has been translated into many other languages.
