A second solution is cultural immersion: going to an Arabic speaking country to live the real Arabic dream. No doubt about it, this is the ideal way to learn any language because you get to speak with natives, learn their correct pronunciation and live the way they do. Unfortunately, moving to a different country is something most of us cannot afford.
Being one of the oldest spoken languages on Earth, Arabic has a rich history and influenced different languages worldwide. For example, Maltese has been greatly influenced by Arabic. This is because the Arabs conquered Sicily, Malta’s neighbor island, in the 9th century. But Arabic also influenced the western world with words like “admiral”, “coffee” and “giraffe” which have Arabic origins.

Arabic Alphabet starts with a chart of various Arabic letters. Students can click on each letter to see how it is written, and there are images of letters written in different positions, based on the surrounding context of written information. Also available are audio and video clips for letters that are written similarly, letters that are pronounced similarly and vowels.
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.

Even if your learning goals aren’t focused on being able to discuss politics, you can still get a lot of useful vocabulary out of reading the news. When I told my tutor I’d had a hard week because of the كارثة (disaster) at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, I was glad to be able to use a strong word to express the weight of the situation. I remember learning that word from reading a sleepy article on global warming, but I was able to use it in a context of my choosing.

Hi Donovan. I began my learning experience learning MSA, thinking I was getting somewhere [although slowly!]. Then I found myself in southern Beirut, struggling to make myself understood, and realising just how different a dialect is from classical Arabic. From now on, I’m going to focus solely on what I need to learn in order to communicate with the people I will be surrounded by next time I visit.
We believe Arabic should be all about preparing you for real life situations. That’s why, at Mondly, we have structured our Arabic lessons inspiring ourselves from day to day situations. Created by our language experts, each lesson prepares you for real life conversations by revolving around specific themes such as family, travel, shopping, animals, grammar and more.
For two main reasons : the first one because MSA strangely helped me learning 2-3 dialects very quickly by being a sort of “base” or “glue” on which I piled up my dialects, and the second reason is because my life would be miserable without books and news and written stuff. Talking with people is not enough 😉 And since everything written is in MSA, if I hadn’t learned it I would feel I missed on most of the things I loved in Arabic culture and the Arab world.

Your article is spot on! I'm the son of an Arabic native speaker, but grew up in an English-speaking house. As a result, I grew up HEARING Palestinian Arabic and READING Qur'anic Arabic. Total disconnect. I went to college and took three semesters of Modern Standard Arabic. More disconnect! I did not move forward in TWENTY years toward fluency because I had low proficiency in THREE Arabics! I finally moved over to Palestinian Arabic to learn that there are THREE Palestinian Arabics: Mádani (urban, esp. in Jaffa and Jerusalem), Fellá7 (rural), and Bádawi (nomadic). All three are mutually intelligible, but one is pigeon-holed by other Palestinians depending on which Palestinian Arabic said person uses! I stuck with Mádani Palestinian Arabic and my proficiency skyrocketed. A couple of my own suggestions beyond your article: (1) get Arabic writing capability on your computer so you get away from transliteration sooner than later, (2) learn how to write in Arabic by writing English words using Arabic letters (by reading back English words with Arabic phonics rules, you'll develop an Arabic accent much faster that way), (3) think in triliteral roots (same as in Hebrew) and you'll remember words better, (4) learn early on how to use an Arabic dictionary by using the triliteral roots, (5) learn proverbs — that always impresses Arabs! I am most amused that that the Palestinian Israeli singer Mira Awad is teaching her fellow Israeli singer Noa Palestinian Arabic though Noa is the daughter of Yemeni Jews. DRAMATICALLY different Arabics!! 🙂


So you acknowledge how sacred and in high regard modern standard/classical is held by natives and you claim that part of your method is to respect the culture you are immersing in and learning. Yet you completely contradict these two points when you then speak about classical in a completely disrespectful way. Your disdain of MSA/CA is the sole reason I discourage anyone from your site
