Arabic lesson of the month

Arabic lesson

Arabic is a Semitic language. It is written from right to left and Arabic calligraphy is a major art form and is widely used in Arabic writing and branding today.

أ ب ت ث ج ح خ د ذ ر ز س ش ص ض ط ظ ع غ ف ق ك ل م ن ه و ى

The Arabic alphabet consists of 28 letters – only three of which are ‘long’ vowels. Three more ‘short’ vowels are represented by symbols placed on top of or below the letters. You will be relieved to know that Arabic words are written how they sound and so practicing reading in Arabic becomes easier for the new learner. Arabic has much in common with other languages, borrowing and lending many words to most Latin languages.
