Arabic Language Lessons for Beginners

Arabic classes for beginners can be exciting and fun with the help of a private tutor!


It's true that many native English speakers aren't so good at finding the time to learn and speak a new language. Everywhere we go, people seem to speak English at a decent level anyway, so what's the point, right?


If you feel like you want to break the mould and learn an exciting language that could help open up interesting social and career prospects, then Arabic is a great option. Although it can be a challenge to start from the beginning, learning a new alphabet, new grammar, new phrases and more, imagine how proud and content you'll feel when you make it past the elementary stages to an intermediate or even advanced Arabic level!


There are so many options for beginner Arabic students that want to learn, from different teaching methods like online or face to face, and class structures, like one on one or groups. But before we check out these different options, let's consider what key topics elementary Arabic students will learn in their classes...


What topics will be covered in your lessons?


Beginner students studying modern standard Arabic will have to start with the most simple of tasks: learn the alphabet. It might seem easy, but the reality is that learning to write and sound out the individual Arabic letters and symbols will require hour after hour of practice. The spoken sounds the letters make can differ quite a lot from English, so non-native speakers might have trouble at first with pronunciation.


While you're trying to master the alphabet, your tutor will probably also start teaching you some beginner level vocabulary and phrases, firstly so that you can start to build up your beginner vocabulary, but also so you can learn how different letters change when spoken and combined.


Your conversation at this point might be limited to questions like 'How are you?' and 'Where are your from?'. Remember that the key to improving your level with modern Arabic is practice, practice practice, just like with all languages. Hour after hour, the more effort students put in both in and out of classes, the sooner they'll feel like they've advanced with their studies.


Should I do Group or Private Lessons?


When you're at the opening stages of your language studies, choosing the type of classes that will be good for your learning can be difficult. One dilemma is whether you want to learn alone or with other beginners.


To find the answer, you need to consider your goals for your language lessons. Students who are looking for help with conversation and speaking will be better off with a group class which can be a more social experience. Otherwise, you'll need to find free resources like the Tandem language exchange app to get into your speaking practice.


If you're taking a course for professional reasons, perhaps you want to find work in the Arab world or appeal to the Arab community in Australia, then you might need to learn a  more serious type of lesson. While studying with other people can be more interesting, it also means that you aren't the sole focus of your teacher. Private tutoring might be best for people who want to improve at a steady pace, focusing on grammar, vocabulary and writing skills.


Taking an online course vs face to face


For many students, the idea of taking an online course is not very appealing, although there are actually some important benefits. Arabic is not a language you will find being taught in classes in many smaller parts of Australia. Studying with a university language school or private tutor may be the best option for a student in a rural area. You can have access to tutors all over the country, who will then be able to use plenty of online content in your lessons.


It can also be extremely convenient for students who have busy university or professional schedules, and only have smaller portions of time available during the day. With an online Arabic course, all you need to do is open your computer and get going!


Of course, there are also benefits of a more traditional Arabic teaching experience in the classroom, especially for beginners. As we mentioned before, learning the alphabet is an important part of all elementary modern standard Arabic courses. It's much easier for a  tutor to teach their student to write each letter when they are in the room as the student can copy their hand movements more easily.


Also, a physical class can be best for a student who has issues concentrating. Studying from home means there are plenty of distractions just outside the screen, so it's easier to miss what your teacher is saying. This can be a problem when you're learning phrases and vocabulary that are the building bricks of the language. Finally, learning languages is all about connection and it's much easier to feel a more personal connection with your teacher if they're standing in front of you.


Find a Superprof tutor and start your Arabic course!


Whether you decide to take courses online or face to face, by yourself or in a group, one of the best resources for finding the perfect teacher is Superprof! On Superprof you can find a database of professional teachers with plenty of teaching experience that offers all types so f courses.


It's easy to find the best option by simply searching for a teacher based on your filters. You can search for tutors who have experience with beginners, who are in your area and meet your budget. You can also get information about their specialist areas, like any dialects they speak, or knowledge about the Arab world they can include in lessons. Maybe they are history teachers too!


Once you have chosen a good option, contact them to get started with your first class. And if you're not sold, many tutors offer the first-hour lesson free, so you can see how you feel in the class before committing to further lessons.
