I have always been curious how brother @Coollearned to understand Arabic without the aid of translations. Did you learn it formally in a Madressa, or did you learn it through self study? I have personally been using Duolingo and Quranic for the last few months, and I understand it at least as well as Punjabi. I may understand simple and basic phrases, and I sometimes get the gist of the message from longer Ayah's. For some reason, Ahadith are more difficult for me than Ayahs. I would like to know about the experiences of non native Arabs who learned it, and some tips on how can I take it to the next level. Edit: I would also like some ideas on how to go about learning Farsi. There's no Farsi on Duolingo. Brother @Ashvazdanghe, any pointers? Also, is Dari and Farsi the same or mutually intelligible?
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Salam dear people So I was planning on learning Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), but after learning MSA will I be able to understand Iraqi Arabic? And do they understand MSA? Yep, that is it. Thanks
When I wanted to improve my English language skills, especially fluency, I tried a few things but the only one that seems to have worked well was watching humor or comedy shows on TV (Yes Minister, Candid Camera, The Simpsons, Friends, Colbert Report and others) for a few hours every day. It was easy because these kind of shows are very popular, just buy the CD/DVDs or go to YouTube or official sites and start watching episode after episode after episode... Arabic however, I couldn't figure out... can people please suggest any equivalent shows that are popular and easily accessible (I don't mind paying a little bit if it means good quality) and have reliable sub-titles? One great side-effect of the English shows I watched was the popular culture lessons I learned as a result, and things didn't feel alien when I visited these countries later. I would love it if your suggestions are also popular enough to catch-up on Arabic cultures and norms too, apart from being funny :)
