Your Arabic Daily Online
Your Success, in getting to grips with the Arabic language, is not by accident, magic or mystery.
Success is the natural result of applying daily the basic, fundamental, skills.
Some reasons to learn Arabic
Arabic is the fourth/fifth most spoken language in the world. There are many countries that speak Arabic as a first language. One of the first things that a person does when he or she becomes a Muslim is to learn some basic Arabic words and chapters of the Quran. Arabic is also the language of many Christians in the Middle East who are very proud of their language.
Why would anyone learn Arabic?
- It is a scientific language.
- It is a spiritual language.
- It is one of the top languages to learn in political and economic circles.
- Its letters are clear, unlike many other languages where various letters can have different sounds and pronunciations.
- It is a language whose learners increase every time someone becomes Muslim…and we all know how many people are becoming Muslims, despite the negative media stereotypes and shocking stories.
- It is a language not just of Arabs or for Arabs, as the Arabic language has been made international…it is now open for anyone to learn.
- There are obviously many jobs a person can get if they can speak Arabic such as within Journalism, travel companies, NGO’s, charitable organisations and aid agencies, translation and interpretation, teaching, spy agencies and secret services, financial institutes working and meeting with those rich Arabs etc etc etc.
- For social reasons…maybe you have a Muslim friend or know someone who is Arab or speaks Arabic.
- It is a language that has been around for some 2000 years. It has classical, modern and colloquial versions of it.
- And last but not least it is the language of one of the most popular and widely read books ever. The language of a book that is controversial but attracts so many people of all backgrounds and cultures. It is the language of the Holy Quran.
There are many Arabic words used in other languages like English, you may even speak words of Arabic origin without even realising.

Save time and money and know what type of Arabic you need.
There are many that think the Arabic language is all the same. They express surprise when told that actually, Arabic is of various types. So how does someone who is not trained in the language of Arabic know what type of Arabic they are listening to? Well obviously without getting inside Arabic you will always be a stranger to Arabic.
Once you find out how many different types of Arabic there are then the tricky part is to decide which one to study or which one to learn first. There are really only three types of Arabic, Classical, Modern and Colloquial/regional. Classical and Modern are usually called Fusha but real Fusha is actually Quranic and other classical texts.
So if you want to use Arabic for holidays and speaking with friends then learn the colloquial of the region you want to visit or learn the colloquial of your friend. If on the other hand, it is for something which requires a lot of contact with newspapers, books and Fusha speakers then stay away from colloquial in the beginning of your study, as it can mess you up.
When someone wants to learn Arabic they are faced with an array of different methods and systems for learning Arabic, each one competing under slogans such as ‘learn Arabic the fast way’ or ‘Arabic in 30 days’. The truth is that Arabic like any other language takes time, why should it be any easier? You have to find a way to get to grips with the language which, for most people will take a while. So supposing you don’t have that much time and you really do want to learn as quick as possible, or maybe you need to for an important deadline or appointment, what to do?
Follow the above advice on the type of Arabic you wish to study. Also, don’t believe that if you don’t learn from a particular method or system you won’t be able to learn Arabic. There are many methods claiming various levels of success but don’t be drawn by too much hype, take time to research or speak to us for extra clarity. If you really want to learn Arabic is there anything that can stop you?
