    عـربي / Arabic


    Learning Arabic

    For English speakers, learning Arabic seems like a daunting and perhaps insurmountable task. It certainly looks different from English, having an entirely different alphabet, unusual sounds and letters and the rule of writing and reading from right to left across a page. However, Arabic is not as difficult to learn as most people think. Learning the alphabet usually goes fairly quickly and the grammar system is much more consistent and predictable than English. Pronunciation and speaking ability takes practice, as with any language, but it should not be considered impossible to learn.

    Lessons
    Of course, the best way to learn any language is under the guidance of a qualified instructor. Many universities and two-year colleges are now offering introductory courses in Arabic. However, it can be more convenient and sometimes cheaper to purchase a course for use in your home, such as a computer program. Books can be very helpful as a supplement, but should not be used as the sole source of training, as they cannot tell you how things should sound. There are a number of good computer programs available...
    You will also need an Arabic-English dictionary...

    Writing
    The first step in learning Arabic is coming to terms with the alphabet. Interestingly, the English word "alphabet" is derived from the first three letters of the Arabic alphabet:
    Alif ( أ ), Baa ( ب ), and Taa ( ت ).
    One of the more confusing aspects of the Arabic alphabet is the letter forms.
    Most of the letters take a different form depending on where in a word they fall.
    For example, the letter Jiim ( ج )
    In the beginning, and in the middle of a word it looks like this: ( جـ ) ,
    while in the end of the word the letter shape change to this: ( ج ) ,

    This issue makes learning the alphabet a bit challenging. Start at the beginning of the alphabet and practice writing each letter, from right to left, in multiple combinations and positions, until you have worked through the entire alphabet. You'll be comfortable writing before you know it.

    Speaking and Dialect
    The version of Arabic that most foreigners learn to speak initially is Modern Standard. It is a dialect that is generally understood by most Arabic speakers, however most natives do not speak it in day to day conversation. It is reserved primarily for official business and higher education.

    in order for you to learn to speak Arabic, it is vitally important that you find some way of interacting with Arabic speakers. Many of the sounds of the Arabic language are totally new to English speakers and you will likely need a bit of guidance before you can accurately pronounce those sounds.

    Please edit your post in english. Languages that can not be moderated (by moderators or administrators) are not allowed. You can post a phrase in a post along with the english translation but you can not have threads dedicated in a different language than the official one of this forum (english or german).

    Thank you.

    I've edited your first post because I've asked you with respect to edit it yourself but more than enough time has passed and I have to follow the rules like everyone else. You can make a thread(this one) about the Arabic language but in english or you can just stop posting in this thread.

    And ignoring a rule because others are simply ignored from time to time is not cool man. Show me another thread entirely in another language (other than english and german that is) and I will present you my apologies.

    I am actually genuinely interested in what he wrote
    Arabic is a very interesting language, but it's very hard to learn on your own

    Take a class, meet with him, conf with him, mail with him and heck, if you really want to do this on this forum, PM with him. You have so many options that I strongly believe that you will not choose any of them.

    Like I said, talking about the Arabic language is absolutely fine. I will even participate since I spend a lot of time in an Arabic country but as long as it is in english.

    and let it be a reference to whoever want to translate or comment..
    is there who can read what I wrote ? "

    Why would he get banned? I actually appreciate this thread even though I'm not interested in Arabic myself.
