Practice your Arabic and befriend native Arabic speakers. The Arab diaspora spans every corner of the world; the best way to develop your Arabic is to talk with Arabs and expose yourself to all things Arabic. Join pen-pal websites, listen to Arab music, watch Arab soap operas, news broadcasts, and children's shows, chat with your local Palestinian barber, Moroccan grocer, and Lebanese restaurateur, etc. Knowing even a few words opens doors.
Imagine having an Arabic teacher in your pocket ready to jump in and help you every step of the way during your language journey. This is essential when you want to improve and master pronunciations. That’s why Mondly has developed state-of-the-art Speech Recognition software that checks your Arabic pronunciation in real time and suggests improvements on the spot. Fast feedback is key to the accelerated learning of any language and that’s exactly what we are aiming for.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of trying to learn Arabic by transcribing words instead of learning the alphabet first. Think about how we learned English back in school. First, you learn your letters, then you form those letters into words, then you learn how to form sentences, and then you learn more about proper syntax and grammar. Taking shortcuts will only slow you down.
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.
Hi, it is really interesting how everyone is writing about learning the Arabic language from you own experience. I just wanted to add that there are more than 20 different dialect are spoken in the Arab world , Arabic native speaker would understand most of the dialects as they grow up watching Egyptian, Syrian, Lebanese movies and listening to songs with different dialects. But those who were born in USA or Australia, they would never understand other dialects, as they grew and learnt what they hear from their parents.
I assume already having experienced the ‘learning language through culture’ once with Spanish (actively studying the language and living in South America), had already opened up that “aha-feeling” and created new “rooms in the brain” for new sounds, grammar, rhythm of talking and… That is was actually possible incorporating a new language in once’s life.

Mondly gets you started with a basic Arabic conversation between two people. You quickly start learning your first Arabic words by matching words with images, using words to build sentences and phrases, and at the end of a 45-minute lesson you are able to reconstruct that conversation with your own voice. Explore reading, listening, writing and speaking exercises enhanced with an extensive Arabic dictionary, verb conjugator and state-of-the-art speech recognition technology - you’ll feel like having your own Arabic teacher in your pocket. In no time, you'll enjoy the benefits of learning a new language for life. It’s an incredibly effective way to learn Arabic free of charge.

Arabic, along with other Semitic languages, uses a pattern of roots that help speakers indicate or anticipate the meaning of a word. Words related conceptually, like internet and website, are also related sonically. For example, the root K-T-B means "write, written"---thus, kitab (book), kutubu (books), kaatib (writer), maktab (office, library), kataba (he writes), etc.

Learning Quran and acting upon it is obligatory for every Muslim. It is the direct word of Allah and an ultimate guide for the entire humanity. The holy Quran brings a message of eternal happiness and success for those who hold it firmly and practice it in both words and actions. In his historical last sermon, Muhammad (PBUH) said, "O people! I am leaving behind two things, the Quran and my Sunnah, and if you adhere to it you will never go astray."


We started our online Quran tutoring services in 2008 and have since helped thousands of Muslims from across the globe learn to read, understand and memorize the holy Quran. Our online Quran classes include learning to read the Quran with Tajweed (Quran recitation), Quran memorization, Quran translation, Quran Tafseer, and Arabic language. To learn Quran online, all you need to have is a laptop, a stable internet connection, a headset/microphone, and Skype.
Maybe I would also add: Devote time to learning Arabic in a structured way. Don’t think you will just “pick it up” only by social contact. There’s a variety of learning methods with different approaches – group/individual lessons, tutor, GPA, TPR, etc. Social contact is essential, but in order to practice what you’ve learnt and pick up new vocab/expressions to ask about in your class. Don’t listen to well meaning locals (sometimes your local boss) who tell you can pick up the language just by going to the market, talking to colleagues, etc.
But,for me,fusha,puts you in the best place to learn dialects a lot quicker. You see what the dialects are doing clearer, like you do when listening to a child trying to explain things. Fusha is also richer,and offers a door to a over 1000 years of poetry,and the high culture of islam. Also the Arabs try to pull rank over you if you speak just a dialect, and they have a pedantic love of correcting. Once you know the fusha and a dialect,they sit back, and say ماء شاء الله.

Tajweed is to give every letter it’s right and pronounce it from the correct place in the mouth/nose/throat. The word itself means “to make better”. This course is designed to teach Tajweed rules from a theoretical and practical perspective. Students are given regular exercises and assignments to make sure that they understand the material in full.

Importance Of Reading the Quran with Tajweed Many of us, when we first begin learning to recite the Quran with Tajweed and Makharij, we feel intimidated by the number of things we need to know and apply, to be able to recite the Quran melodiously and accurately. We feel overwhelmed by the large number ofRead more about Importance Of Reading the Quran with Tajweed[…]
Learn the Arabic alphabet. The Arabic script seems daunting at first, and some people try to avoid learning it by relying on transliterations of Arabic words. This merely stores up problems for later; it is much better to ignore transliterations and use the script from the start. The best you can do is to buy or borrow a book at the library, since this is a long and difficult project.
Yes yes yes, I went through the same journey with MSA although as you say, after a year I did totally get the shape and grammatical structure of the language – just could barely speak a word! I then focused on Lebanese Arabic at a great language school in Beirut called Saifi – and now I can speak to an advanced level. I WISH more Arabic teachers would just give up on the MSA – whenever I speak about this issue to people it's always Arabic people who disagree and say NO you must learn MSA even when they themselves probably forgot all the grammar years ago!

“www.QuranReading.com is an amazing program. My two kids are studying since one year. We sometimes go on long vacations to another country and their Online Quran classes go with us. I am happy with their Tajweed and Tafseer services. Being a computer professional, I am glad to see that they have number of computer engineers to resolve any computer issue. All these efforts make the learning process smooth. Believe me; it's awesome!”

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

My question is what do you think of learning the Levantine version? Will different parts of the Middle East be able to understand me? Will Gulf areas be able to understand me, and vice versa? How about Egypt? Levantine areas of the Middle East is where my interest lies, but maybe it is best to go Egyptian, since I hear it is the most widely understood? Just curious on your opinion of Levantine.
Sorry, Abdun, but my experience is such that I can say categorically that formal/classical Arabic is NOT understood easily everywhere in the Arabic-speaking world. Words can be different, and not every Arabic-speaking person uses ‘perfect’ grammar. Sometimes, one needs to learn and understand the way people speak in their daily lives, rather than how they ‘should’ speak, according to a textbook. The same applies with English (my native tongue), where speakers rarely speak as one might expect if one had learned the language strictly from a textbook.
Have you studied Arabic at a local school, using expensive software packages or with boring textbooks and still have trouble speaking? Do you want to be able to speak to millions of people in the Middle East and in Northern Africa in their native language? With Live Lingua's online Arabic immersion lessons program you can reach your goals. We offer Skype Arabic Lessons, Google Hangouts Arabic Lessons, & more. And best of all, you can try a full 60 minute Skype Arabic lessons with a professional Arabic tutor for FREE before signing up!

Reading is a much better way to gather new vocabulary than encountering new words out of context. In the Finbo the Whale story, for example, I finally got a grasp on spelling حوت (whale), which was a word I’d heard before but struggled with. Which letter H? ح or ه? Which letter T? ت or ط? By reading it several times in context, the correct spelling now just “looks right.”

I accidentally(!) started learning Levantine Arabic surrounded by friends in language cafés – and suddenly I realized I had started to learn like a child, out of pure joy! Listening, asking, repeating and suddenly identifying words, grammar, verbs. It was the most wonderful feeling, falling in love with a language and a culture through your friends – all at once. This was about 1,5 years ago and the few words, verbs and sentences I have learned (and been practicing a lot) since then has made me so happy.
One of the most important things in learning anything is keeping track of where you're at. Mondly is great at tracking your progress, showing you the time spent, words and phrases learned and even estimates the time left to complete a certain chapter. This makes the whole process of learning a language captivating and motivating. In no time, you will be able to speak your first Arabic sentences and get one step closer to fluency.
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.
I assume already having experienced the ‘learning language through culture’ once with Spanish (actively studying the language and living in South America), had already opened up that “aha-feeling” and created new “rooms in the brain” for new sounds, grammar, rhythm of talking and… That is was actually possible incorporating a new language in once’s life.
LQ Toronto/Madinah Series (free) - The Madinah series is an Arabic course that was designed to be taught to non-Arabic speakers attending the Islamic University of Madinah. The recordings are of a teacher in a classroom teaching a group of people. This series really helped me a lot, so I would recommend using it in combination with the other websites mentioned above. All of the books and DVDs are freely available for download, and you MUST use both - the video series will constantly refer to the book.

Arabic, along with other Semitic languages, uses a pattern of roots that help speakers indicate or anticipate the meaning of a word. Words related conceptually, like internet and website, are also related sonically. For example, the root K-T-B means "write, written"---thus, kitab (book), kutubu (books), kaatib (writer), maktab (office, library), kataba (he writes), etc.

The endless repetition of words has little benefit to learning Arabic. However, there is a magic interval between repetitions that will help you memorize new words and phrases in no time. The app knows these magic intervals for repetition and uses them to help you permanently pick up words and phrases. No wonder millions of people around the world trust Mondly to be the best way to learn Arabic for free.
Arabic (اللغة العربية) is an Afro-Asiatic or Semitic language closely related to Maltese, Hebrew, and Aramaic as well as Tigrinya and Amharic, and is spoken in an array of colorful dialects. Arabic is the official language of 26 Middle Eastern and North African countries spanning Yemen to Lebanon to the Sudan to Tunisia, it is an official language of the the Arab League, the African Union, NATO, and the United Nations, and it is the liturgical and intellectual language of Islam. People all over the world study Arabic for a variety of reasons: work, travel, family, heritage, religion, wanting to travel to an Arab country, marriage or friendship with an Arab, or simply as a hobby. To learn Arabic, determine which type you wish to learn, study the alphabet, get a good Arabic dictionary, and use some key language learning tools.

Modern Standard Arabic has developed out of Classical Arabic, the language of the Quran. During the era of the caliphate,Classical Arabic was the language used for all religious, cultural, administrative and scholarly purposes. Modern Standard Arabic is the official Arabic language. It can be written and spoken, and there is no difference between the written and the spoken form. In its written form, Modern Standard Arabic is the language of literature and the media. Books, newspapers, magazines, official documents, private and business correspondence, street signs and shop signs - all are written in Modern Standard Arabic. Arabic is a name applied to the descendants of the Classical Arabic language of the 6th century AD. This includes both the literary language and varieties of Arabic spoken in a wide arc of territory stretching across the Middle East and North Africa. Some of the spoken varieties are mutually unintelligible, both written and orally, and the varieties as a whole constitute a sociolinguistic language. This means that on purely linguistic grounds they would likely be considered to constitute more than one language, but are commonly grouped together as a single language for political and/or ethnic reasons (see below). If considered multiple languages, it is unclear how many languages there would be, as the spoken varieties form a dialect chain with no clear boundaries. If Arabic is considered a single language, it perhaps is spoken by as many as 280 million first language speakers, making it one of the half dozen most populous languages in the world. If considered separate languages, the most-spoken variety would most likely be Egyptian Arabic, with 54 million native speakers still greater than any other Semitic language.

But,for me,fusha,puts you in the best place to learn dialects a lot quicker. You see what the dialects are doing clearer, like you do when listening to a child trying to explain things. Fusha is also richer,and offers a door to a over 1000 years of poetry,and the high culture of islam. Also the Arabs try to pull rank over you if you speak just a dialect, and they have a pedantic love of correcting. Once you know the fusha and a dialect,they sit back, and say ماء شاء الله.
It is most likely that the Arabic language is the oldest language at all, as the recent studies have shown and that the language in which God taught Adam all names, which is the language of the people of Paradise.
