The Arabic language contains a lot of types and accents so if you will stay in one area for a long time you should learn the accent which suits this area.

It is a big wrong transcription of words instead of learning Arabic Alphabet…first try to learn letters then you will form different words from these letters and later you will be able to form sentences and to strengthen the Arabic language you must study the grammar.

This mission is not easy as it appears, in this dictionary words are organized around three _letters’ roots, when you look for an award you need to know what the root is and what letter the root begins with _which is not necessarily the first letter of the word.

One of the most effective ways to practice any new language is (watching children’s programmes) because using words are simple, the nature of education is very helpful to any foreign student of any age.
try to watch and listen to any Arabic programmes with English subtitles, if you continue to do this you will understand what is said with no subtitles.
5- Speak the language continually:
Dear reader, seeing and listening are not enough in the learning process so you need to practice the language with native speakers(whose Arabic is a mother tongue) and don’t be worried because technology makes it easy.
