The Prophet (saw) said that Arabism was not something passed by blood from father to son, but was in the language (and culture). He himself coming from what was described as an Adnani tribe, which was itself an ‘Arab tribe’ but not of ‘Arab’ origin – they were in effect Arabised Arabs. The only true ‘Arabs’ that can lay claim to an ‘ethnic Arabism’ if you like came from a small pocket in Yemen. Therefore, the majority of ‘Arabs’ are linguistic/cultural Arabs – although most don’t like knowing or being told such things.

With any new language, there are keys to success in becoming fluent. You learn vocabulary, verb conjugation, grammar, sentence structure, and then practice, practice, practice. You immerse yourself in the new language. You watch movies and listen to music in the new language, speak it as well as you can as often as you can, and seek out native speakers and converse with them. Before long, you’ll have a working understanding and beginning fluidity in the new language.
The material ranges from absolutely introductory tutorials to tutorials for even the most advanced literatures. Both the absolute basics of the language are covered, such as the alphabet and verb conjugation, as well as very advanced material, such as Arabic poetry and deep etymology. It is an extraordinary supplement to Arabic language courses and is an invaluable and authoritative resource for Classical Arabic.
There is no Jannah without sacrifices and sacrifice begins at one’s own level. The extra time that you waste watching TV, listening to Music, chatting with friends, roaming around aimlessly etc can be put to learning Qur’an. It not only benefits you in the Akhirah but also in the duniya. A person whose tongue recites Qur’an has more chances of his dua getting accepted. It also keeps a person away from sins related to the tongue.

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.

I don’t get it though. MSA (fusha) allows for structure. You learn how to conjugate (kataba), and how to derive words (K-T-B, for alkitaab, for instance), and you get far with learning less by heart. You say, only study a dialect. How?! Dialect is ‘made-up’. There are no rules. Very interested in the answer. I think you need to study MSA, and consequently, as early as possible, should switch to converting it to dialect.

I find the teaching method really excellent ... in the past i have had teachers that give up correcting if the student isn't picking up ... but masha Allah this Tutor should get a medal for being so patient and he doesn't give up .. even when sometimes my son is frustrated (from getting  pronunciation wrong again and again )  the teacher isn't ... i find that this method works for kids..

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.

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.

If you're in the U.S. and have a library card, I recommend checking out Mango Language's website. They have language lessons for several dialects. I'm currently working through their Levantine series, they have several units, supposedly focusing on how it's spoken in Damascus. It's like Rosetta and Pimsleur in that they are heavy in repetition and listening but they also put everything on the screen in Arabic script, which makes it easy to take screenshots for flash cards. Clicking the word gives you the transliteration with an accent note. The lessons also give occasional grammatical and cultural notes. I've combined it with the Syrian Colloquial course that Donovan mentions above, Mango is great as it provides much more listening practice and a different perspective on cultural aspects.

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.

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
Qur’an is one of those elements that will safeguard a Muslim from the torments of the Grave. A Muslim who recites it regularly shall get the benefits in this World and in the hereafter. The rewards are immense for those who recite it regularly and the torment is equally horrible for those who ignore it. If a Muslim realizes this, he will never let a day pass unless he recites the Glorious Qur’an.
