A more positive message

A few days ago I wrote a post saying that the Arabic course needs improvement, which is true and I still stand by that. I also wanted to write this separate post saying how glad I am that there is an Arabic course on here, especially since Duolingo is for free, which is simply amazing. Yes, it needs improvement, but the course just recently came out and I can't wait to see where it goes. And to anyone who helped put this course into motion- ًشكرا. ​:)

Second time you mention this on one of my posts, thank you for sharing! When I checked it out, I realized I was already familiar with it! It helped me in the past with some grammar I was struggling with. Very useful website. Again, thank you! :)

Duolingo is really amazing to give us the opportunity to learn this beautiful language. I hope to start the Arabic course soon!

Arabic is in Beta and has been making changes over the last few weeks.

It's a good intro and I use it but have listened to the natives on here who warn that the audio is poor. Rosetta Stone Arabic is where I am spending most of my training now.

Today I did some DuoLingo Arabic lessons for the first time in about a week and found it quite fun.

I use Rosetta Stone as well. I don't think it was ideal for me when I was an absolute beginner, however, I am much happier with it now that I know quite a bit. They both have their pros and cons. :)

I agree. I have used Rosetta Stone for Russian, Spanish and Korean.

The Arabic course has hidden features for absolute beginners that I just found yesterday. Alphabet and all kinds of notes.

Also, you can download the entire course contents in pdf and I found that extremely helpful.

Also make sure to diwnload tve audio companion for while you’re driving or jogging...

The speech drills and native speakers are making such a difference.

From RS “Start fine-tuning your pronunciation from the very first lesson with our patented TruAccent speech-recognition engine. That way, you’ll be confident that you know what to say and how to say it.”
