Is It Difficult to Learn Arabic?
Like any new language, studying Arabic will certainly come with a learning curve. While learning an entirely new alphabet can be tricky, Arabic's alphabet only has 28 characters. Practice and dedication will help you grasp each letter. Flashcards also come in handy, as will a practice partner to help you voice each letter aloud until you've mastered the pronunciation.
In Arabic, letters generally go from right to left. This may be confusing at first but will become second nature the more you practice. Arabic words are typically easy to pronounce for an English speaker except for one or two uncommon sounds. Plus, grammar is easier than the English language as Arabic only has two tenses — past and non-past.
Verb conjugation is also generally simpler in Arabic than English. While there are more verb conjugation categories, Arabic doesn't have irregular verbs — so once you've memorized the right conjugations, you're set.
