Great post, I love your approach and emphasis on assimilation. I’m starting to learn Arabic for work, I’m in the US and my company is soon opening offices in Dubai and I’d like to position myself for a future working there. My question is if I should focus on Emirati Arabic. I have friends from Syria and I LOVE the feeling & sound of Levantine, and the resources are pretty plentiful for Levantine. Aside from Youtube, Emirati Arabic feels slim on resources. Would Levantine serve me well as I’m getting into Dubai or would I be better served to make do with the Emirati resources available? Thanks! –Joe
Reading Arabic and reciting the Quran correctly is a difficult task in itself. IQRA was started to provide Arabic and Quran education through an interactive online environment. The goal is to give students a chance to not only understand the language, but to excel at it. Yet excellence can only be achieved through regular practice that fits into an active lifestyle. IQRA’s experienced, high-quality instructors offer this education through personalized, one-on-one, online sessions that are suitable for the entire family — including some of the best online Quran classes for kids.
Our program is simple to follow and very flexible. We have One teacher One Student classes so students and teachers mutually decide from where to start. Tutor will assess the current level and will make the recommendation. At a pre-agreed time, teacher and student come online. With the help of Internet, they talk to each other and by using computer screen sharing software they can see the same lesson on their computer screen as their teacher have, during the class.
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.

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
