Arabic is one of the most interesting languages of the modern world mostly spoken in middle east countries. It is one of the best languages to read Quran-e-sharif, learn about Islam and its history. In this world of the digital age, many people want to learn this language for their own specific reasons. But before you jump to learn this language, you must ask yourself a question: ‘Why am I looking to learn this language? What is my purpose? How much time can I give every day to learn this language?’ When you have the answers to these questions, you will get a clearer picture. One of the important questions that busy corporate people need to ask themselves is ‘How they can learn this language in their limited time being preoccupied and busy in the corporate world most of the times’. In this article, I will share some of the best practical tips which, people with lesser time in hand and those of the corporate world, can use to learn this language without disturbing their schedule:
Books with a twist!
E-books: You got it right yes, with Ebooks you can learn this language in your own flexible time. Yes, we all have been there and we do understand, how challenging it is to juggle and yet manoeuvre around your busy schedules. The task was easier when we were in schools and we had access to a huge collection of physical libraries. But having lost touch, and little time to spare for our own selves, it is virtually impossible to go back to study books again for most of us. But lose no hope we still have a way possible. Since we all are consistently working on computers it makes our life easier to download E-books and read whenever we get time. Space out your reading to 20-25 minutes of time or even 15 minutes if nothing more.
Audiobooks: I am sure you must have heard this word. Let me give you a brief idea of what audiobooks are? An audiobook is nothing but a recording of a book that you hear instead of reading it out loud. Yes, you got it right. When you have audiobooks on your smartphone (Android or iPhone), you can use this tool at the convenience of your time. They are easily available on the internet. These are put to best use during commute to and fro to work!
Online fun resources
YouTube: YouTube is one of the fastest searching engine tools after google. Nowadays people want someone to explain the concept to them in simpler words. With Google, you can only see the word format but on a YouTube video, the presenter will be explaining the content of the video. Now the question arises: ‘How can I watch the video while at work when I am expected to attend various meetings, seminars etc.’ The answer is your break times. We all get one hour break from our busy schedule to refresh our mind. And instead of using it to surf social media, you could utilize it better by watching 10-15 minutes of videos on the target language. it might just be best to delete social media apps altogether.
Free applications: There are multiple free applications available on Google play store or apple store that you can download to take assistance in Arabic. Such as online/ digital dictionaries. You can improve your skills in this language.
