Allen become annacarl welcome to Arabic
Ford 101.com abs Adia made easy the fastest easiest and most fun way to
learn the Arabic alphabet the ABS Adia over the next 20 lessons you learn
everything there is to know about the reading and writing of the Arabic
language by the end you’ll be ready to dive into the world of Arabic literature
make your way through Arabian cities and really accelerate your Arabic study
ready to start then let’s go the Arabic alphabet contains 28 letters and their
variations seeing them laid out like this might seem intimidating but the
trick is to take it step by step letter by letter don’t worry about how
hard it looks now just stick with me and in a few short lessons you see how easy
it actually is I have some really good news for you Arabic is largely phonetic
this means words are pronounced exactly like they’re written also most Arabic
fans have counterparts in English we use the similarity to English to tackle the
Arabic writing system let’s separate the letters into two types the first type
are the Arabic letters that have English counterparts and the second type are
those that don’t in this lesson we learn two letters needed to write the pronoun
I in Arabic both of them belong to the first type so expect them to be really
easy to pronounce ready let’s begin we’ll start with Aleph so what sound
does this letter make that’s easy it’s just like its English counterpart a in
the word Apple and if is very easy to write it’s basically a vertical stick
now it’s time to take out your pens and pencils we’re going to practice writing
find some paper and follow along we’ll practice writing them so you can get
used to the shapes okay here we go I live nice time for the next letter not quite
you just saw the isolated version of Aleph
however Arabic is the cursive language that means every letter in a word
connects to the letter before or after it so every time I introduce a new
letter in this series I’ll also show you how it’s written in all its possible
positions let’s get to know the different possible positions for a
letter in Arabic it’s always one of four isolated initial medial or final let’s
look at each of them isolated means that the letter has no letters before it or
after it it’s the standard form we learned just a few minutes ago initial
means that the letter lies in the beginning of a word so it’s connected to
the ladder after it but has no letters before it are you confused because the
initial position connects to the letter to the left of it that’s because Arabic
is written from right to left medial means that the letter is connected from
back and front to other letters and final means that the letter is the last
letter in a word so it’s only connected to the letter before it with the
exception of six letters we must learn the four possible forms for all the
letters in the Arabic alphabet those six exception letters don’t have a distinct
medial form and are instead written with their final form without being connected
to the next letter their initial form is the same as the
isolated form by the way the letter we learned today happens to be one of those
exceptions that means we only have to learn two forms isolated and final you
already learn the isolated version so you just need to learn the final version
let’s write it Aleph now we will learn the final letter
needed to write the word I in Arabic that’s noon the noon is pronounced just
like the English n pretty easy right it basically looks like a semi circle with
a dot on top remember that this is the isolated form let’s write it noon you got lucky with your first letter but
no one requires that you learn all four forms let’s get them all out of the way
at once so we have the initial form for when noon appears at the beginning of a
word the medial form for when it appears in the middle of a word and the final
form for when it’s at the end now try to write all three noon great you’ve already learned two letters
of the Arabic alphabet I think you’re ready to learn your first Arabic word
the word you learn to write today is Anna this word means I
the first Aleph is isolated because it’s at the beginning of the word the second
and the third letters moon and Aleph are connected you may have noticed that the
Elif at the beginning has a little mark on the top when an F is at the beginning
of the word we add the smart to it but it’s still the Aleph sound there’s an
exception to this rule but you can read about it in the lesson notes and we’ll
talk more about this mark in a later lesson so don’t worry too much now try
to write it to yourself Anna you now it’s time for Carol’s tips by now
you must be overwhelmed by all the different variations and exceptions and
you also might be worried about that weird mark in the word you learned today
don’t worry you don’t need to understand everything 100% by the end of this
lesson and present the new concept slowly over the rest of these lessons
and you’ll soon find that Arabic writing isn’t all that scary have you ever heard
the Arabic word up in the next obsidian made easy lesson you’ll learn what it
means and most of all how to write it see you there Salaam
