Although this brother is a salafi and vehemently hates shias, knowledge and good advice is knowledge and good advice, and merit and credit is given where they are due. This is excellent advice:

He's not promoting hate on the video is he? 

No but he's giving relevance to someone that spread hate and false information about our beliefs. Would you watch a video of the ISIS leader giving Arabic lessons for example?

He is giving relevance to the content of the video - which happens to be presented by the person, and not the person himself. Anyways, I don't want to derail the thread, so let's just agree to disagree.

I understand what you are trying to say, uponthesunnah's intention was to give relevance to just the video but he's still promoting the salafi's name that is speaking. People can watch this video than become curious and watch his other videos that contain false information about our beliefs. You wouldn't want to watch that video if it was isis giving you lessons, this guy is no different. All I'm saying is it's fine to learn from him privately but to spread and promote his name is not a good thing.

How about an online SC Learn Arabic thread here? Arabic speakers can post some lessons and we can participate as a group. It can be more interactive here. It might not be as good as a video, but sounds like fun. 

For most people, learning basic Arabic morphology (Sarf) and syntax (Nahw) is enough to be able to begin reading texts (with the help of a dictionary of course). I've taught Arabic morphology a few times and this summer I really wanted to make a teaching-video series of it because there is no complete beginning-till-end video series on Arabic morphology on YouTube.

If someone can give me some ideas on what they think would be the best way to record & present the material, I'll be willing to teach it. It has to be audio-visual. 

Morphology is not that difficult, it is mostly memorization. Syntax is a bit more complicated, but it is still doable.

If you're still wiling to do this, and from the UK, i would like to make a donation towards the cost of a good microphone. Or, helping to fund an affordable graphics tablet, which can connect to your screen and you can talk while drawing. Google khan academy video's - that is the style.

If there is a way i can annonymously contribute to this, since you are giving up so much time, and it might help spark a revolution to learn Arabic on shiachat.

:salam:

@QuranandAhlulbayt Thank you for the offer. The only time I can do this is in the summer when I'm back home in Toronto (that is when I have most time), and I have access to a decent mic and also a Wacom Bamboo tablet. I just needed a visual idea on how to present it. I'll check out the Khan Academy videos for ideas.

Wasalam

For studying nahw, my favourite method was when the teacher read from a book and then did a translation and grammatical breakdown of the words (sentence parsing) - after having explained the basic concepts of course. It is a much more engaging method of teaching, and even though it can seem a bit overwhelming at the start, once you get the hang of it, the results come quickly.
