My name's Donovan and I'm an Arabic translator, linguist and teacher.
I began learning Arabic over 12 years ago and the biggest problems I always had were:
“I really want to speak Arabic but I don't know where to start.”
“There are so many varieties of Arabic out there. Which one should I learn?”
There are so many different varieties of Arabic and for years this frustrated me as a learner.
I just wanted to get rid of all the confusion and have a good resource to learn the variety of Arabic that I need.
Can you relate to this?
1. Most courses and online resources (including retail giants like Rosetta Stone) are designed to teach you Modern Standard Arabic, a literary language that no person anywhere on the planet speaks as a first, native language.
2. Good quality resources for spoken Arabic can be very difficult or even impossible to find.
Arabic is one of the most neglected major languages in the world when it comes to high quality resources.
This makes learning Arabic much more challenging to learn than it should be and it causes many learners to give up.
I knew that in order to solve this problem, I'd need to gather some incredible people from around the Arab world; people who are just as passionate as I am about Arabic.
So I combined years of linguistics research and experience learning the Arabic language with the creativity and passion of native Arabic speakers from 8 different countries to get to work on something never attempted before.
We've successfully produced a groundbreaking resource that we know you're going to love.
“Talk in Arabic is the best I've come across for learners who want to branch off the academic side of learning Arabic and get more hands-on with how people actually speak.”
Author of the International Bestseller "Fluent in 3 Months"
