Rosetta Stone Blog #ArabicLearn about Arabic with Rosetta Stone
Unlike many other languages, learning Arabic must always begin with a question. Which dialect? This question haunted me for years. Originally, I thought I would learn the Levantine dialect (spoken in Syria, Lebanon and Palestine) as at the time of my initial interest, most of my friends were from one of those countries. My first trip ever to the Arab world was Syria. I was fascinated. Between the extraordinary castles, Roman ruins, incredible hospitality, chic hooka cafes, irresistible food, art and winding passageways through the old city of Damascus, what was not to love about Syria?
But then I met my Moroccan husband and learning a dialect I wouldn't be able to communicate with his family in seemed rather pointless. Moroccans speak a dialect of Arabic (darija) that is infused with a lot of French, which they share with Algerians and Tunisians. But I wanted my Arabic to be useful beyond Morocco so I resolved that the modern standard Arabic (fusha) made the most sense. Yet I never really started Arabic so my decision was useless anyway. This fantastic article from The Economist perfectly describes the diversity of Arabic, comparable to the times of Medieval Europe when people wrote and studied in Latin but spoke early French, Spanish and Portuguese. Arabic is quite similar, yet we call these dialects, even though they are as diverse as languages. The classical Arabic is the language of the Quran and the Arabic standard—modern standard Arabic (fusha)—is the universal Arabic used in print, including most books, newspapers, magazines, etc.

Speaking additional languages will have an immediate impact on your life. Think of your children who will grow up with an open, cultural mindset simply by being able to speak to their classmates coming from Japan, Turkey or the Arab countries. Often only a few words can make a difference. As students they will go abroad during their gap year, or decide to do work experience in Italy or France during the summer and they will come back with language skills that will add value to their CV, when applying for their first job. Last, but not least, just think of your advantages at work, being able to talk to your clients and business partners in their language. It will immediately open doors and will make you more successful at work. It might also create opportunities to be sent abroad to work on a project in China or Russia.
Multilingual comedy? British comedian Eddie Izzard regularly performs in French and occasionally in German. Did you know that he is learning Spanish with Rosetta Stone, too? And what's the best of all, he just started to brush up his German and Russian, yet making another effort to unite Europeans through laughter and languages. We've talked to Eddie about language learning and his dreams. Here's what he says:
"The best way to learn a language is like a child. Children do rather well at learning their native language (they all learn to speak that one up to at least conversational level) and Rosetta Stone helps you tap back into that way of learning. And if you do learn another language, you cross over into a different world – a world that you might have dreamed about but now you can live in. It is 200 years since the Battle of Waterloo and I am now touring stand-up comedy in France in French and the French are digging it. This completely blows my mind." Eddie Izzard
