Course description

Arabic for non-Arabic Speakers

This course aims to help you learn the basics of the Arabic language required for a simple conversation without needing to study Arabic grammar first. The well-designed, semi-genuine video conversations, practice worksheets, and hands-on exercises accommodate your different learning levels and styles. This design objective is to cover the four communicative skills required to learn a foreign language—reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

You will also learn numerous words and become familiar with the a-b-c’s of Arab culture, as well as the best ways to approach Arabic speakers. You will be introduced to some types of non-verbal communication that are popular in the Arab region, which you are expected to know.

Since this course is a doorway to the Arabic language, we will teach you the shapes and sounds of the Arabic letters as well. Arabic is a member of the Semitic language family. This means that the directionality of Arabic script is right to left, in addition to a number of other characteristics that you will discover during your learning journey in this course.

Several professionals including linguists, educators, and e-learning platform developers collaborated to put this course together. The goal is to apply the best scientific and pedagogical methods proven to help non-Arabic speakers learn Arabic.

This course will undoubtedly be an enjoyable journey if you have a passion for knowledge and exotic adventures in the Arab world with all its diverse cultures.
