Have you ever felt stuck when speaking a foreign language with a native speaker – be it your tutor, teacher or language partner? You can be as successful and fluent in your target language as you want to be, so long as you practice and persevere through use of the right tools and learning methods. If you are reading this article, you more than likely belong to the category of people who are trying to improve or enhance their language skills. All it takes is a willingness to explore new things and continuously looking for ways to accomplish your goals better and faster than before. 

Struggling to speak is perhaps the hardest part of being a language learner. However, it’s persevering and pushing through the struggle that separates the ordinary language learners from the extraordinary ones. Speaking a foreign language will always be difficult at first, simply because it requires your brain to do so many things at once. This includes retrieving words from long term memory, arranging words together coherently, pronouncing words properly, intoning the sentence to convey the proper meaning, and more! At the end of the day, learning a language has a lot to do with the mindset.

Some people say that the moment you make the language your own is the moment you become more confident in speaking. One way of gaining confidence is by expressing opinions. We are constantly expressing our opinions – chatting with friends, sharing our thoughts on social media, filling in surveys or participating in debates, for example. One of the most common mistakes in spoken language is a lack of opinion. In this article, you’ll learn a few effective Arabic phrases that you can use to give your opinion in Arabic (including the Arabic to English meaning).

Here are some Arabic expressions:
