Course Content

In this short intro, I introduce you to the concept of Arabic sounds and how I will approach the topic. You will also be familiarized with some terminology that I will be using throughout the course of the coming 11 lessons.


Arabic Glottal Sounds (هـ & ء)
In this lesson, you will learn how to pronounce the glottal sounds which are the ء which has no equivalent in English and هـ which can be compared to /h/.

Arabic Pharyngeal Sounds (ع – ح)
In this lesson, you will learn the technique as well as some tricks to pull off the ever so challenging sounds for non-Arabs: ع and ح which do not have similar sounds in English.

Arabic Uvular Sound (ق)
In this lesson you'll learn how to properly pronounce the trickiest sound in Arabic /ق/. You'll also learn the necessary skills needed to produce this sound successfully, and you'll also get to learn some tricks that will help you train your epiglottis to master the sound. If you are learning to read Quran and do Tajeweed, this is the first step to take.

Arabic Velar Sounds (غ – ك – خ)
There are THREE Velar sounds in Arabic (غ - ك - خ), and lessons FOUR AND FIVE will take these sounds consecutively. In Lesson FOUR you'll learn how to properly pronounce two challenging sounds in Arabic /خ/ & /غ/ You'll also learn the necessary skills needed to produce these sounds successfully. You will also be introduced to the concept of VOICED and VOICELESS sounds, and how you can use this knowledge to learn the difference between خ and غ. And in Lesson FIVE, you will learn how to properly pronounce the  ك /k/ sound, and how it is different from the commonly used /k/ in English.

Arabic Palatal Sounds (ي – ش – ج)
There are THREE Arabic Palatal Sounds, they are (ي - ش - ج) and this is the main focus of this topic.

Arabic Alveolar Sounds (ر – ط – ض – ص)
There are in total 10 Arabic Alveolar Sounds but there are only (ط - ض - ص - ر) that represent some difficulty for Arabic learners since the other seven sounds exist in almost every other language in the world. In the course of the coming FOUR lessons, we'll tackle these three sounds separately.

Arabic Interdental Sounds (ظ – ذ – ث)
There are only THREE Arabic Interdental Sounds; they are (ظ - ذ - ث) and for these sounds you will your tongue as well as your front teeth.

To pass this exam, you need to score at least 75%.

Pretty good but a question does not have the proper corresponding sound file in the final exam. It says A3 but the word said is different.
