Want to Learn Arabic?

Are you fascinated by the Arab world? Do you dream of learning to speak this beautiful and international language?

Perhaps you think Arabic will be very difficult to learn and impossible to assimilate with? Don’t be scared, we’re here to help.

Is Arabic a Difficult Language to Learn?

Put a stop to those stereotypes and clichés! Even though the Arabic language can present certain difficulties when you begin learning the language there are many ways to facilitate your learning.

If reading from right to left destabilizes you, it’s normal. You will have to forget all your linguistic references and learn all the basics of the Arabic language from scratch, starting with the Arabic alphabet, grammar and pronunciation.

Learning to read and write in Arabic takes time, but this does not prevent you from beginning to learn the language orally through phonetic transcription in parallel. You can learn to pronounce consonants and vowels and begin to familiarize yourself with Arabic grammar rules at your own pace.

Before letting yourself get discouraged, it is important to note that learning a foreign language is neither easy nor difficult. Learning Russian or Chinese also requires extra effort to learn their alphabet, just like Arabic lessons.

If you’re motivated, committed and accompanied through the learning process, there is no reason not to achieve your goals.

Work and Motivation

If you already speak several foreign languages, you will probably have less difficulty learning Arabic. Having said that, you will have to be patient.

If you are told that you can learn the Arabic language in one month, remind yourself that it is logically impossible. On the other hand, in this period of time, you will master your first Arabic words, basic phrases and learn more about the origins of your own language.

You’ll introduce yourself to the Arabic alphabet and practice pronunciation, while also immersing yourself in the sounds of the language.

Arabic lessons and other tools to Learn Arabic Quickly

Private home tuition is one of the best ways to learn quickly. Arabic courses can be personalized. This individualized teaching will enable you to improve your skills quickly.

How to best learn a foreign language quickly?

Memorization of vocabulary is essential. You have to get used to the new grammatical rules. It is also necessary to familiarize yourself with the new sounds and to learn how to correctly pronounce the words learned. Practicing orally and registering sounds is a very formative exercise.

Evening classes

Taking evening Arabic classes, intensive training and daily practice is the best way to develop language skills and to move quickly from beginner to intermediate level.

Learning the language can also be facilitated by using interactive media (website guides to learn Arabic online, English Arabic dictionaries, exercises, mobile apps, videos, Arabic forum or board threads, audio files, etc...)

Once you’ve taken the first steps towards learning this language, it is easier to enrich your vocabulary and to learn to read and write literary Arabic.

Learning Arabic on the Road

A trip or a language course in an Arabic speaking country will also make you progress faster. With total immersion, a learner must practice the language in front of native speakers. This becomes a very constructive language training.

Once you are fluent in Arabic, the next step in your learning will be to learn Qur'anic Arabic in order to read the Qur'an and study Islam and Islamic culture.
