    Is it easy to learn to speak Arabic language?

    When I tried to learn Arabic, I found out that it is one of the most difficult languages to master. In the several years I stayed in the Middle East, I could only use 4 Arabic words with ease: Marhaba (Hello), Shukran (Thank You), Yalla (Come on, Let's Go, Hurry Up), Inshallah (God willing).

    Nothing is easy or difficult. If you are determined to learn any language and sincerely try it learning by believing oneself, you would achieve it within a very reasonable period. If you would try  halfheartedly , easier and easier thing will be out of your reach.

    Yes, it is very easy to learn to speak Arabic. I've learned to construct a few Arabic sentences in two days. I needed to learn the language quickly, then, because most of my colleagues had difficulty comprehending English. Arabic is one of the most beautiful languages to speak in. However, up until now I still don't have the chance to learn how to write or read Arabic characters. It was also from the Arabs that I learned the meaning of my name.  Nila or Neelam means blue, sky blue, or blue sapphire.

    It's a little difficult to start with, because the structure is different from English, for instance changing the middle of words instead of the endings.  I did learn a bit, and intended to learn more, but someone nicked my grammar book and never returned it, and I didn't get round to using the Tape course I bought.  The other difficulty for English speakers is that not only is the alphabet very different from our Roman alphabet, but you write from right to left, instead of left to right.  Once you have mastered this, it is not more difficult than other languages.

    And, Virgo908, surely you know "emshi", which means "go away",  and is something which is used frequently when you are surrounded with sellers and beggars who won't leave you alone.

      Diana, you're absolutely right about the structure.  The system of 3-letter roots, prefixes and endings is completely different from English. To really get the language, you have to learn the Arabic measures or forms.

    Rumana, Learning Arabic isn't difficult if you master the grammar first.  Arabic is built around a completely different morphology system that uses 3-4 letter roots with specific modifications according to a grammar table called the Arabic measures or Arabic forms. 

    If you want to learn the language quickly and well, you have to memorize the measures and use them as the context to form words and sentences.  There are lots of sound cues in the measures, so knowing them makes a big difference in your pronunciation and listening skills. 

    If you've started learning the language and have specific questions, please ask.  If you're curious about the measures and you want to see them explained in English (instead of the standard all-Arabic table), look for a copy of the Easy Arabic Measures Chart.  It breaks down all the nouns and verbs for the most common forms, and includes some of the common but tricky idioms like "to almost".
