This is the last post on Common Arabic Phrases series. We started this series to expose you to the idea of how to approach speaking Arabic at the fastest rate possible. In this post, we also give you some final tips on how to carry on your journey.
We have been introducing some of the common phrases in Arabic every week. These are phrases that you can use in your day-to-day life; and can be quite an effective way to learn the Arabic language.
In this post, we are going to introduce 5 more new sentences. We have also introduced some feminine pronouns. Masculine pronouns were introduced in Common Arabic Phrases #2. Make sure you know your pronouns. Just using pronouns correctly can be a huge leap in your Arabic learning journey! They are easy. Don't overlook them.
According to a discussion I had with a linguist professor, the lexical approach is the fastest way to learning a language. The lexical approach basically rests on the idea that an important part of learning a language consists of being able to understand and produce lexical phrases as chunks.
In this post of learning Arabic phrases, out of the 6, we have introduced 5 new sentences and 1 of them has appeared before. I may repeat a few sentences so that you can recognise and get familiar with them. I have also introduced feminine words, and how you can form feminine words in Arabic.
The idea is to memorise about 5 simple sentences everyday and practice them in your day to day life. Once you have about 30 sentences, you're already speaking the language. Speaking the langauge is one of the easiest way to learn the language. Once you're speaking, you can go into more details about the langauge. Don't be afraid to mix the sentences you have learnt and to come up with creative responses. The more mistakes you make, the more you learn!
This is the third post in the series of Common Arabic Phrases. Hope you all have been memorizing and using these basic phrases, which are here to get you started on your Arabic journey. Remember, unless you start using them in your daily lives, there's no way you can practice the language. Using the language gives you better chances of continuing your journey in Arabic learning. When you speak a few phrases it's as if you already know the language! (wink)
Language learning is all about practice. Unless you practice and live the language, there's no way you can use the language effectively. Speaking the language gives you the confidence to use the language. Once you pass this stage, you can focus a bit more on grammar. No matter how many years you study grammar, you cannot say confidently that you know any language unless you speak the language. So let's boost some of that confidence, shall we?
