If I Started Learning Arabic Again, This Is How I’d Do It

Arabic was the first foreign language I learned to fluency.

I started almost 13 years ago when I was just starting college and it took me a full 3 years to reach a point where I felt comfortable communicating in it and understanding people when they spoke to me (which I always say is the most difficult part about learning another language).

Over the last decade I’ve travelled to the Middle East for language immersion many times and had some pretty amazing experiences along the way such as almost marrying a girl who only spoke Arabic.

But you know after all these years of learning other languages as well as doing Masters research on language acquisition, I look back in retrospect on my experience with Arabic and I can now see a lot of things that I would of done differently which would have helped me learn a lot faster and more effectively than I did back then.

According to the author of the article above, if he were to learn Arabic again, he would devote time in the beginning to surrounding himself with and listening to the target dialect. Immersing yourself with the language would really contribute a lot to your learning. Now, we are going to read about how someone learned how to speak Arabic in Brazil. BENNY LEWIS will tell us.

How I learned to speak Arabic while living in Brazil

My three months are officially up!

In a few hours I’ll be getting a flight back to Ireland to spend Christmas with my family, then heading to Germany for a few days to celebrate the New Year in Esperanto with some good friends as always.

Then, a few days into January, I fly into Egypt, where I’ll be spending at least two months next year.

As you’d imagine, with all the work I’ve put in, no matter where I am, my level is going to be very useful in giving me a much more wonderful experience while there.

Hell, even the level I had after a few weeks would have been enough to function as an independent basic-questions-and-answers tourist.

Now I can have real discussions with people. Read more here.

With the testimony given above, he has bow proven that it is definitely possible to learn a language to intermediate level in the wrong country, and in a relatively short time.

11 Ways to Make Learning Arabic (Slightly) Easier

Arabic is one of those languages that’s considered extremely difficult for English speakers to acquire, right up there with Chinese and Pashto. Any book that promises mastery in months is lying; more accurate is the common teachers’ adage “Seven years to learn it, a lifetime to master it.” I should know—I’ve been working on it for a quarter-century, as I lament in my book All Strangers Are Kin: Adventures in Arabic and the Arab World. But I made some early missteps that new students needn’t repeat. Learn from my mistakes and spare yourself a little head- and heartache with a few key learning tips.

  1. KNOW THERE IS NOT JUST ONE ARABIC; THERE ARE MANY.

Arabic is what linguists call diglossic: There’s one form for reading and writing and another form for conversing. The written version (called Modern Standard Arabic, MSA, or fusha) is consistent across the Arab world, while the spoken dialects vary from country to country and region to region. Teachers often don’t mention diglossia at the start—they don’t want to discourage you.  Read more here.

If you don’t have any native languages speakers around to teach you, you could actually learn through the internet. There is also a helpful program given above which you could use. However, we should also be careful in using the internet because not all websites are reliable and correct. Anyways, we should not rush. Knowing how to speak even a little Arabic would actually be acknowledged and appreciated by Arab-speaking people.
