Best Arabic Lessons

As we move towards a genuinely global society, the ability to speak a language other than English can increase your chances in the employment marketplace as well as allow you to better understand people you encounter on a daily basis. If you are one of the nation's students or adults who choose to learn Arabic as your second language, you'll find yourself in very high demand for positions in education, state and federal governments, social work, and much more.

With more than 300 million native speakers, Arabic can be heard in more than 20 countries. Whether your plans include travel to Arabic-speaking nations or doing business with native speakers in the U.S., modern technology will enable you to study the language according to your own schedule and even on-the-go, as most providers of Arabic lessons have easy-to-use mobile apps and audio files that can be used at your convenience.

Innovative Language

INNOVATIVE LANGUAGE

Innovative Language's ArabicPod101 uses a variety of approaches - audio, video, written - to teach Arabic and includes a good selection of lessons that teach different dialects as spoken in various parts of the world. The user interface can be somewhat overwhelming, and the sales tactics might feel pushy to some customers. We recommend trying the 7-day free trial before committing to a paid membership.

Talk in Arabic

TALK IN ARABIC

If you have some experience with Arabic already and are ready to make your listening/speaking ability much closer to native, take a look at what Talk in Arabic has to offer. Their program focuses on hearing (and imitating) common phrases, slang, and accents used in Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and other locations. However, because they do not offer a structured language program, beginning students will likely find their program too difficult to use. Read More... Visit

Pimsleur

PIMSLEUR

If you find that you learn most effortlessly by hearing, Pimsleur is worth your consideration. Well known for delivering language instruction through audio lessons, Pimsleur teaches Modern Standard Arabic using a series of conversations and explanations. But, with prices that are much higher than other programs that also incorporate audio lessons, Pimsleur's Arabic lessons may be out of reach for many students. Read More... Visit

Strokes International

STROKES INTERNATIONAL

Strokes International's Arabic lessons include the topics of the A1, A2, and B2 Standards of the European Framework for Languages. We noticed a number of errors on the website, nearly zero positive reviews from previous customers, and no return policy. Because of this and the fact that this CD-ROM based program was sold out at the time of our review Strokes International's Arabic 100 for Beginners is our lowest-rated program.

Continued from above

As you decide which program will best help you advance your fluency in Arabic, keep in mind what your preferred learning style is. For example, if you find that you remember what you hear, select a program that delivers your Arabic lessons primarily in an audio format, such as MP3 or CD-based lessons that you can listen to while you drive, commute, or relax at home. On the other hand, if you need to see your lessons to learn best, you'll want to make sure your instruction program of choice gives you ample opportunities to read, watch, and see the lessons you're studying.

One critical consideration as you compare Arabic lesson programs is the written component. Will you need to be able to read and write in Arabic as well as understand and speak it? If so, it is important that your Arabic lessons include detailed instructions for how to understand the written Arabic language, as it is very different from the Roman alphabet you already know. For instance, Arabic is written from right to left in a cursive style and contains 29 letters; however, there are different letter variations depending on where the language is being used, and the best Arabic language programs will help you recognize the difference.

There are three key factors to consider as you choose the Arabic lessons that will be the best match for your learning style and goals. These include:

  • Instructional Methods. If the program you're evaluating offers a free trial, give it a test run. Do you feel interested and inspired or confused and frustrated? Is the overall structure of the lessons (such as auditory, visual, heavy on text, and so on) a good fit for your preferred learning style?
  • Skill Level. Do you need to have any experience with Arabic to use the program? As you progress in your fluency, will you need to purchase further software/subscriptions/access? Will the program take you beyond a beginning level of fluency when you're ready for more advanced lessons?
  • Value. Does the program have a solid track record of success with current and previous students? Will you gain enough fluency in Arabic to make the purchase price or subscription costs with the investment?
