    Learn to read quran first if you dont know how to then focus on arabic language

    private teaches are expensive and diff ones have diff methods

    better to just study online flexible and easy

    if you can go abroad even better as less distractions and youl have more practise as speaking arabic egypt is best for arabic studies

    after all 3 medina books youl be able to read basic arabic books not complex ones like ie ibn qayyim books and probably be able to conversate abit

    those 3 books arent enough to gain fluency in speaking or reading or grammar/morphology

    you have to study arabic for probably couple years if you studied like 5 or 6 hrs a day or maybe 5 to 10 years id you did 2 hours a day to gain fluency and high skill

    What do you guys think about hiring a private Arabic tutor?
    A lot of Arabs are happy to exchange their language skills for some English. This can be a very cheap way to learn.

    the other books in my pics are children’s story books which are great too for once you have a bit of a foundation. I recommend finding a proper Arabic children’s publisher. The books I hve are from Oxford university press and it’s the Arabic reader series and are highly recommended.

    It’s good for conversational Arabic. You’ll probably be able to pick up quite a bit with a private Arabic tutor but IMO this will be better for conversational Arabic

    I say this because I was listening to a Christian scholar yesterday mention that he had an Arabic tutor. It seems like a good idea and would probably help speed up the process instead of working through an institute. Although I'm sure it would be pricey esspecially if the lessons are in person.

    The Watermelon (Arabic children's book)
    The Rainbow Fish (English/Arabic edition)

    Ustadh Tim Humble also disagrees with the approach of many institutes, saying that the focus is too heavily on grammar too quickly and that students drop out of courses very quickly.

He also emphasises on learning vocabulary and so on, which institutes won’t really do..
    Are these children's books for learning Arabic or just kids' books in general? Would you have to translate each word yourself to understand what is being said? Also, do you have any recommendations that you could link me directly?

    This is the book. It's written by a Christian missionary, just as a heads up. You can skip some of the Bible passages if it bothers you (they're not really necessary).

    The lessons; I need to compile them since they're scattered.
    So, I read the first lesson and found it pretty easy and straightforward. Although I was already familiar with the Arabic alphabet and what a Fatha was. How much Arabic do you gurantee will be understood after completing all 250 lessons? What level will the student be at and what could they do?

    its just been publicised because its what medina uni uses

    but its not all that
    The first book is fine, the second is fine until it introduces irregular verbs and transforms into an absolute train-wreck. Book 3's key is worth going over once.

    All in alll, 6/10 I'd say.
