How to Learn Arabic

There are many online sites that offer instruction in Arabic, but like learning a new language, learning arabic does take time and practice. Arabic root system is the one that you need to first master when learning a language. Because there are so many regional dialects of the language, the best way to start is to learn standard Arabic. Although native speakers will think that you are talking rather formal, at least they will understand you. Once you become more knowledgeable about standard Arabic, when you spend time in a particular country or the speaker of one of the Arab countries, you will be able to adapt to the dialect. Arabic language consists of 28 consonants and three vowels. Just as in English, vowels can be long or short. Although some of the sounds these letters are very difficult to learn to pronounce correctly, you will still be able to pronounce the words well enough so that you can be understood. In a sentence, the normal order of words is a noun, verb and object.

Arabic is the language most widely used in the world's sixth. It is the language that is used in all the Arab countries and because many of these countries are open to visitors from other parts of the world, you definitely need to speak the language if you intend to travel or do business in these countries. There are very few irregular verbs in Arabic and there is no word for time now. If you translate a sentence from English to Arabic, you might think that there is a missing word in a sentence. Whereas in English you would say the food is good in Arabic you would say the food was good. Once you start learning Arabic you will also realize that many of the words that you use in the English language actually originated Arabic.
