There is no Tanwiin. It is just a long "aa" .

Thanks, that's what I thought it should be! The current audio makes it sound like there is.

For those who don't know, the discussion here concerns whether there is nunation (Arabic: تَنوِين‎ tanwīn). At issue is that the voice seems to add nunation/tanwīn but it's not written. Apparently we will learn about nunation as we move forward. For now, baby steps. I personally do not hear an n at the end of Rosa, but apparently some people do.

you could try with youtube "Learn with zakaria" its youtube for kids, but i think its good one, as it also teach you how each letter looks like when its in beginning, middle and at the end ❤️

I recommend googling Arabic alphabet, then click on videos, then scroll to the one with the smiling woman called ArabicPod101. She does a tremendous job explaining in a friendly way and pronouncing the letters. I also use A. S. Tritton's Arabic (Teach Yourself Books), a tiny pocket paperback in connection with the ArabicPod101. The two combined greatly helped. There are other beginner Arabic alphabet videos available, so you could pick the one you like best.
