Learning doesn’t depend on age. Age doesn’t matter for the ones who are passionate to learn; they will find a way or the other. Thirty years isn’t that old to not know how to operate a mobile phone or laptop. Learning a language that is not your mother tongue may be difficult but it depends on the particular person’s effort and time to learn the language. It takes a person’s interest, time, and effort to learn a language which we are not familiar.
There’s a saying that “Nothing is impossible unless you think it is.” Suppose a person is forced to learn the language without their interest. In that case, they will always find an excuse not to learn the language and will automatically forget what he/she has learned within a few months, and a person who is very attentive and wants to really understand the language will manage to learn the language with or without a teacher. Yes, Arabic is a Semitic language that first emerged in the 1st to 4th centuries CE. It is now the lingua franca of the Arab world. It is named after the Arabs, a term initially used to describe peoples living in the Arabian Peninsula bounded by eastern Egypt in the west, Mesopotamia in the east, and the Anti-Lebanon mountains and Northern Syria in the north, as perceived by ancient Greek geographers.
The ISO assigns language codes to thirty varieties of Arabic, including its standard form, Modern Standard Arabic, also referred to as Literary Arabic, which is modernized Classical Arabic. Arabic alphabets or Arabic abjad, is the Arabic script as it is codified for writing Arabic. It is written from right to left in a cursive style and includes 28 letters. Most letters have contextual letterforms. The Arabic script is also a religious text, it is used mainly in Islamic countries, namely in Arabia, North Africa, Persia/Iran, Central Asia and the North-western Indian Subcontinent.
Tips to learn Arabic when you are 30 years old:
- As I have mentioned in the above paragraph, there is not just one Arabic but many so you need to commit to one dialect but do not ditch the modern standard Arabic.
- We have to believe in ourselves and work hard in order to build our own future. One can learn as much as they can if they have the abilities to perceive all the things. How we should do it in the simplest way is what we have to find.
