My Learning Adventure with the Arabic Language!


Bismillah Arrahman Arraheem 
In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Kind


My adventure in learning the wonderful Deen of Al-Islam has brought me upon many paths.  For so many years, since embracing Islam, I have had a deep desire to learn Arabic.  It is the language of the Noble Qur'an, the last revelation from God to mankind.  My adventure is an ongoing process and with the help of Studio Arabiya teachers, it has become a very exciting and interactive journey.  I am definitely a baby when it comes to knowing much Arabic.  I can read Arabic, but to really know what I'm reading has been an uphill battle for me.  With Studio Arabiya, I've been able to gain a partner in my efforts to learn Arabic.  Whenever I'm stuck on something that I really cannot translate easily into English, my Studio Arabiya teacher, Reem, helps me quickly.

I've been learning with Studio Arabiya for a while now, and I've been fortunate to have had Rabab as my original teacher, as well as Sausan for a few weeks.  These changes came about due to my schedule and now I've settled down with teacher Reem and she is really great!  In fact, I cannot say enough about all of my Studio Arabiya teachers.  They are all polite and pleasant and really delightful to interact with and learn from, alhamdolillah.

The things I've found that helps in learning anything is to...



  1. Try your best to keep the new words in your mind and on your tongue.

  2. Say it to your self over and over on a daily basis, so that it becomes like a second nature.

  3. Write down whatever your learning and read it back to yourself often.

  4. Try to place sticky notes on items with the Arabic names and repeat that every time you pass by.

  5. Get your family involved with learning the new words.  My kids love to speak any other language with me.  My daughter goes to Muslim school and she tells me what she is learning of Arabic there and I tell her what I'm learning here at Studio Arabiya.  We compare notes and try to test one another.  It's like a game and it feels good whenever we can communicate successfully only between one another and keep her Dad or brothers out of the conversation.  Then they get curious and start asking us, "What are you guys talking about?", so we interest them in learning Arabic to keep up with us!

Love your story. The tips you provide would be useful in learning any language. I especially like the advice to get your family involved. Using a new language daily really helps with retention.

I was just telling my daughter yesterday a good way to learn a new language would be watching cartoons. What are your thoughts on that?
