Also, with regards to dialects. If you want to learn Egyptian Arabic, maybe you can gather a decent variety of resources, but, I mean, Arabic resources suck in general without trying to find a variety of resources for a specific dialect. My husband speaks Arabic, but there are zero resources available in his dialect. I’ve just studied MSA and then listened and observed the differences and how to adapt.

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.
Every person, irrespective of his professional or work, can take out time on a daily basis to recite Qur’an. The time can be when one is at home or at office or at college or while one is traveling. How much time does it take for a person to recite Qur’an? Hardly 15 minutes or 30 minutes. Can’t we take out 30 minutes on alternate days of the week? Is it that difficult??

Thanks so much for the great post. A quick question: I totally get what you're saying about learning a dialect first, and also about avoiding transliterated books, but sometimes that can be a bit of a hard thing to do. I checked out your post on Levantine Arabic (I am learning Palestinian myself) and the books you cited were for those already know MSA. Are there any books you could recommend that teach Palestinian or Lebanese dialects that are not all transliterated? Any pointers would be much appreciated.
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.

This task is not as easy as it sounds. In an Arabic dictionary, words are generally organized around three-letter roots. To look up a word, you need to know what the root is and what letter the root starts with – which is not necessarily the first letter in the word. Using the dictionary takes practice, but the sooner you learn it the better. It will make the entire process easier and more enjoyable.
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.
With the advancement in technology, learning Quran has also become easier. There are tools available by which you can learn how to read the Quran with proper Tajweed. Some websites are useful enough to offer the recitations of various well known Qari’s (reciters). Even there are apps which help blind people and kids learn Quran. You can also learn Quran recitation & translation at the same time by reading translation books online. Websites like Qur'an Kareem in Arabic, English Translation, Read Text, Listen MP3 Audio, and Qur'an Kareem in Arabic, English Translation, Read Text, Listen MP3 Audio are great sources to learn Quran, Quran translation in various languages.
One way for beginners to practice a foreign language is to watch children’s television programs in that language. The vocabulary is simpler, and the educational nature of those programs can be extremely helpful to new students of any age. As you gain proficiency, another tactic is to watch movies in the foreign language with English subtitles on. That way you gain a better “ear” for listening, and the subtitles give you the translation for what you’re hearing. Eventually you’ll be able to switch off the subtitles and still understanding what is being said.
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.
But you know one thing I’ve learned during all my travels through the Middle East and everywhere else in the world is that most people regardless of their political or religious affiliations, just care about the same stuff you and I care about: getting married, having kids, going to work to put food on the table, buying a new home, the latest gadgets, a new pair of shoes, etc.

This is a great resource! Thank you! I teach elementary school and next year I will have several Arabic speaking families in my class. I’m excited to learn more about their culture and would love to learn Arabic to help me connect more with the families. I have my first assignment though – I need to find out where the families are mostly from so that I can focus on one language. I’m bookmarking this page! : )

I was just wondering whether it is valuable to learn Arabic as a white female from The Unites States. I really enjoy learning foreign languages and about about different cultures. I have been interested in Arabic for quite some time and even took measures to learn some Arabic when I was in high school, but was quickly dissuaded. I mean no offense, but given cultural stereotypes about Arab views toward women, would it be a valuable time investment to learn Arabic if I wanted to make a career out of my passion for foreign languages/cultures? I appreciate any feedback!
The Arabic language is counted among the most important languages worldwide. More than 300 million people in over 20 countries speak Arabic. This Afro-Asian language originated several thousands of years ago. Originally only spoken on the Arabic peninsula, it later became widespread. There are many different Arabic dialects. Many of the dialects are very different from standard Arabic. Speakers from different regions often do not understand each other at all. Ancient Arabic is hardly spoken today. It exists most notably in the written form. Interest in Arabic has increased in recent years.
