Creating Arabic course for English speakers
Hi everyone my name is Yara I would like to create an Arabic course for English speakers since there are many people asking for it. I have been searching for the contents that would be suitable for this course and I have found many actually. but I found that there would be some problems such as the alphabet and the vowels since they need special keyboard but I found that you can download it online but it needs lots and lots of practice. the second thing is that I am on my own so is there any one interested in creating this course with me??!! if the answer is yes please contact me so we can start together :)
So if I applied in the Incubator would i find someone with me?! or am I gonna be alone?!
There's the ENglish for Arabic speakers course and I am sure there are thousands more who have applied
Currently English->Arabic course is still in beta, and all the team efforts at the moment are focused on getting it out of beta.
Once the course is stabilized, they can start to prepare for the reverse one.
In regards to the keyboard thing, Windows computers at least, and I expect most others, come with a multitude of computers already programmed, that one can simply select as one of their keyboard options.
There is currently an English for Arabic speakers course and in theory those contributors could make a reverse course if their first one ever gets out of beta. Though the team seems to have been fairly inactive (I saw an upset post about this a few weeks ago), they have suddenly become more active, and three weeks ago announced the addition of several new contributors. So eventually there should be Arabic for English speakers here on Duolingo. It would be great if you started a course before there is a course here, but if you are trying to make a course in the style of those here, it might be pretty difficult without access to the already existing framework. It might be easiest for you to just apply to be a contributor for when the course is being incubated here.
place an on-screen key board right below, so people will look at for reference I guess.
here is an Arabic keyboard you can use...and the position of the Arabic letters on the English keyboard http://www.arabic-keyboard.org/
and you can download it here:
An Arabic course... that would be great! Every new language is a blessing... good luck, a Lingot for you ;-)
Thanks...I am sure that many people have already applied to contribute in this course :)
Oh yes please! I would be so excited for an Arabic course here! :) Thank you for your efforts, Yara!
