Arabic is the first language of hundreds of millions of people across the Middle East and North Africa. Learning this language is a real life achievement. But learning a language is a long project, and you have to start with the most important basics. This course will introduce you to the most important facets of the language, starting with the Arabic alphabet and the pronunciation of Arabic words.
Learning Arabic letters and pronunciation will unlock the rest of the language for you. You will then be introduced to the use of verbs and nouns, and how to read and write simple sentences in Arabic. The course will also cover basic vocabulary such as days of the week, numbers and colours, and will give you the confidence to continue building your knowledge of Arabic vocabulary.
If you want to travel to or live in the Middle East for business or leisure, or converse with Arabic-speaking people in your country, this is an important and possibly life-changing course. If you get the basics of the language correct now, you will make the remainder of your language learning journey so much easier. In just 3 hours, this course will unlock everything you need for that journey, and you will have a much greater understanding of this fascinating and important world language.
