I have heard that some Arabic sounds are difficult to pronounce by non-native speakers. Is that true?

Many of the Arabic letters are easy to sound but a few may be more challenging. However, our pronunciation guide (part of the flashcards set) relates nearly all the sounds to words English-speakers are familiar with. Additionally, the audio support on our website is a perfect start to learn to read Arabic.

I want to learn Arabic but there are many dialects. Which dialect should I learn?

Arabs speak in different dialects but most Arabs learn Standard Arabic (Fos’ha) at school. Therefore, if your learn Standard Arabic you will be understood by most of the language speakers. Standard Arabic is used in educational institutions, formal communication, literature and in news. However, if you would like to understand the “spoken” Arabic on a daily basis, then learning one of the four main dialects, in addition to Standard Arabic, can be helpful depending on the region you are interested it:

  • Egyptian,
  • Gulf (the Arabian Gulf and the Arabian Peninsula),
  • Levantine (the Levant region), or
  • Maghrebi (Morocco and neighbouring countries).
