Comparing learning Arabic alphabet for English speakers to learning English for Arabic speakers
Arabic for English speakers spends lots of time on the Arabic alphabet. I have enjoyed this course very much. Wish it was longer, however.... English for Arabic speakers, I think, starts with whole words in English. This is a pity. I work with Arabic speakers new to the UK who are learning English. Many do not have a good grasp of the English alphabet. So duolingo is too hard for them to start with. I wonder if Duolingo could do some alphabet practice for learners of English who are Arabic speakers.
