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!


Congratulations! You’ve decided to learn Arabic. This is a challenging but rewarding endeavor. Arabic is the sixth most spoken language in the world, with nearly 420 million people speaking it worldwide. Learning a new language is always a big undertaking, but when the new language doesn’t share a root with your native tongue, it’s even more difficult.

Thank you for putting this post together and for all the great advices on your webpage. You’ve got me convinced that I can and should start learning the alphabet(!), that I should stick to the Levantine dialect, go all in on find good material/webpages, teachers (or perhaps create a study group with some fellow students!) And – most important – that my constant thoughts about culture and language assimilation are worth continue to explore within linguistics, cultural and social anthropology 🙂

Learn how to use an Arabic dictionary. Words in Arabic dictionaries are normally listed under their three-letter roots. So you would look for istiqbaal ("reception") under "q" because the root letters are q-b-l. Getting used to this takes a little practice but it is not particularly difficult because additions to the roots follow set patterns. Something similar happens in English: "unaccustomed", for example, is actually "un-a-custom-ed".
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.
A research conducted for analyzing the situation of Muslim students and Islamic institutes across fifteen different countries ended up in a remarkable result. Due to the hectic routine and busy schedule followed by parents and the absence of nearby Islamic schools and academies, it had become almost impossible for Muslim parents to enroll their children in such programs. This indicates the need and value of online Quran learning.
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.
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.

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.
I do have a question about arabic cultures. From my experience in Latin America learning Spanish, I have run into many very uncomfortable and almost dangerous incidents as a white, blue eyed, blond haired female. In Colombia, I got used to the constant whistling and cat calls, but there were still times when I got followed around or taken to a motel, without knowing that motels are only for having sex, or being hit on by a 60 year old man, who I was dependent on at one point and had no way to get out of the situation. At the end of the adventure, I survived and got to know a lot of wonderful people, fell in love and got a better understanding latin america.. However it has left me with an amount of respect for the unknown and a need to recover from the constant blows to my naivety.
