It’s the 5th most spoken language in the world and the mother tongue of over 313 million speakers. No less than 22 countries call it their official language. It’s also one of the oldest spoken languages still being used today.  

Of course, we’re talking about Arabic.

You’ve likely heard that Arabic ranks second behind Mandarin Chinese as one of the most difficult languages to learn.  However, don’t let that dissuade you from learning it. After all, with all the techno stuff we have at our fingertips, learning Arabic has never been easier than it is today.

Perhaps one of the hardest things to do when learning any language is to keep all those words in your head. Learning Arabic vocab is really no more difficult than it is with any other language, however. That’s why today we’re going to show you how you can make that task a little easier. You really can learn Arabic vocabulary faster and easier than you think. Here’s how:

Basic Arabic Vocabulary 

When you start to learn Arabic, you’ll start with some common everyday words and basic sentences. Learning these will help you to: 

  • Ask for directions.
  • Read street signs.
  • Order food in restaurants.
  • Speak with people who speak Arabic.
  • Count money.

Read Any Good Books Lately?

Reading is perhaps the best way to build and improve your Arabic vocabulary quickly. Not only will you learn new words, but you’ll also see how grammar and sentence structure is used. Depending on the subject, you might also get the extra-added benefit of learning about Arab culture as well. 

When choosing a book written in Arabic, be sure a native speaker wrote it.  That way you’ll know the words, grammar, and so on are correct and easy to understand. 

And on the subject of books, audiobooks can help improve your Arabic listening skills. Again, be sure they are written and read by a native speaker. This way you’ll see how Arabic is pronounced and also learn more Arabic vocabulary in Arabic at the same time.

Create Your Own Little Dictionary

Keep word lists in a small notebook. That way, you’ll have your own little dictionary to refer to. (However, you have to go back and review it once in a while. After all, as the old saying goes: “If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.”) What’s more, word lists are helpful for the following reasons:

  • It helps you learn new words.
  • You can use it to help with homework.
  • You can also create flashcards out of it.
  • You can make copies to take with you or take pictures of them with your smartphone to use later when studying.
  • You can copy down definitions and meanings.
