A good way to remember Arabic vocabulary.

I am new to Duolingo and am very interested in Arabic. However, learning Arabic vocabulary is very difficult for us who are used to English. Have you ever devised a way to learn Arabic vocabulary?

Hi! How are you?

I'm from Brazil, I'm studying English, Arabic, French and Spanish... and I know a mobile game... that you can learn Arabic Vocabulary!

Its name's 'Learn arabic vocabulary game'.

But It's a mobile platform app! (Of course, you canuse it by phone)

You can look for it and download on Play Store, and It is free!

It was nice to meet you! I hope have helped you!

i need help in english .


I tried to create a list of words I already saw on quizzlet to practice them, based on an earlier post with the words. Though I am very limited with computers I managed and was surprised quizlet recognised the Arabic words. He proposes me tests to write them but only gives me the normal letters, not the signs that make a short lettre etc. If I can solve that I can make the list public if interested.


I use the same technique as I have used for other languages: word association. For example, دجاج = chicken, and the start of the word sounds a little like "dish", so I just picture a chicken dish and that's enough to get me started on the word. ممتع = fun, and it sounds a bit like "mum-tia", so I imagine having fun with the mother of someone called Tia. After 10-20 or so practices with a word (which involves laboriously having to conjure up the image or memory of the association and then work out what the Arabic word is from that) I find that my brain makes the leap automatically and the word is learnt.


Creating pictures (in your mind or on paper) is a good way to remember Arabic words as it is, and really understanding what the word is. Its like a kid watching cartoons; they wont completely understand every single word the characters say, but through expressions and repetition, it will get into your head and be hard to forget. Hope this helps!
