Studying arabic mess

Hello Guys So first of all, i‘m a polyglot from germany, speaking several slavic & romanian languages and a bit more. I really want to start studying arabic but just don‘t know how to start. Last year i learned reading & writing the arabic alphabet, but i really don‘t know how to start MSA. I tried several apps like memrise, doulingo, bought a studying book but that‘s not good at all, like the different apps i tried. Also i just don‘t know how to start, cause i would like to study the grammatic also, not just to say that i have a „cold fish“.

I've got about 3,300 XP in Arabic (I'm only learning one language) and I've done very well. Just take it on Duolingo (take your time) and you will find yourself doing well and improving.


Hi! Here is Lama from Saudi Arabia. I'm an Arabian, and happy to help anytime..

If you are really used to write and read Arabic that's great! Somebodies couldn't! Then, you have to learn vocabs and grammar as you said.. I don't know a website, but if I could help in something tell me.. We "Arabians" study grammar at school (Real grammars you want like: command, Inna and its sisters, kana and its sisters, exclamation, condition , etc.) So I can help you if you want, but I don't know how:)


As an Arab myself, I also don't know how to help you. But I'm ready to help however I can (I speak German too). Arabic is really complicated, and while we could perfect all English grammar early in school, yet even at the very end many people couldn't completely command it. Therefore, you don't need to worry.

Have you tried to read simple children stories? Maybe we can discuss some of them here.
