Is learning Arabic really THAT hard?
How many letters are in the Arabic Alphabet?
There are 28 basic letters (“glyphs”). These can be modified with accents to create every needed sound combination
Why do many consider Arabic language hard to learn?
Probably the biggest letdown to newbies is the fact that there is not one universal version or dialect.
However there are the widely understood and used Modern Standard Arabic and Classical Arabic. But a big plus is that Arabic script has a rather small alphabet unlike Japanese for example, which has thousands of unique pictograms.
How does Arabic Grammar work?
It definitely has some tricky aspects but the huge gimme is the way Arabic roots work. A huge chunk of vocabulary can be based on just THREE letters.
Is Arabic script written from right to left?
!SEY…I meant: YES!. Arabic is written ´backwards´with most letters changing their shape as the word flows to the left. But don´t worry, you still only need to learn 28 basic glyphs.
Why should you learn to speak, read and write Arabic?
Besides being a wonderful and rewarding learning experience, there is a huge demand and short supply of Arabic speakers in many different fields.
What is the best way to learn Arabic?
Start with learning the shapes and sounds of each glyph. Learning the actual names of the glyphs can actually be misleading so you should focus on the basic sounds and how new sounds are formed.

I was 10 years old when I first saw these intricate little squiggles on the back of a Kit Kat wrapper and it blew my mind...it was my first time seeing Arabic writing...Where is this going?!
