About Course

Since the Arabic alphabet system is a bit different from most languages in the sense that the alphabet contains no (short) vowels, they are given separate signs which help you read and write in Arabic. You are probably starting this course after having finished the literacy alphabet course of Arabic, and if you haven’t, I highly recommend that you do that first before proceeding. After finishing this course, you should be able to read, and write almost any Arabic word.

Prerequisites of this course:

  • Completed the course “how to read Arabic” and scored 75% or higher in the final test.
  • Average to good knowledge about the English language.
  • A notebook + pen.

This course is the second step to take as a beginner towards learning how to read Arabic. By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify all the vowel signs of Arabic.
  • Know the difference between short and long vowels.
  • Know the Arabic semi-vowels
  • Know the sounds produced by long and short vowels.
  • Read your first Arabic words.

By the end of each lesson, there is an QUIZ that must be completed before proceeding to the following lesson. And by the end of this course, you will be tested in all the skills previously listed. Finishing the test with a score of 75% or higher is the recommended level for proceeding to the next step.

Good Luck,
