:salam: I would like to know if anyone knows of any good sites where I could learn the arabic language online. Free would be nice. Obviously, the sites needs to be authentic. The only arabic I know if of course the recitation of the qur'an but I would actually like to learn it as a language. My heart is really set on going to the middle east to work, and was also wondering, what is in demand for arabian companies,education wise. I have a great job but unfortuantely, i have no degree. The only qualification I have is upto the GCSE(UK) level. So I want to go into further education. Just lloking for general yet genuine advice from you guys.

In my local school system they still teach French. they should dump french and teach Arabic and Chinese.

I don't think they'll ever do it. It's easy to teach them French and German because they all use basically the same alphabet.

yeah, not to mention French and Arabic are at the opposite ends of the spectrum in relation to a persons ability to pick them up. on a related note, i bought a book called Arabic through the Qur'an . has anyone read this, is it any good ?

This seems to be a pretty good resource. I came across it just last week.

This is the best course I've besides shariah program and sunnipath.
Shariah program and sunnipath are more fushah courses and this one will help you learn how to live in an arabic country and read newspapers and things like that.
It can be an excellent supplement to a fushah course, and it's very detailed and takes you to very advanced levels.
It's the next best thing to learning modern standard with a live teacher and I don't know of any student teacher courses for modern standard online, but this one is quite interactive and uses pictures, listening, repeating etc. which is a great method for learning how to speak.
It also teaches grammar, sarf etc.
I took it briefly about a year ago but shariahprogram is definetely better by a lot because you study with a qualified teacher and the explanations are great, but this is a great supplement or for studying after finishing the shariahprogram course.
This one uses the audio/oral method of teaching languages whereas most fushah courses use the grammar/translation method, which makes sense, since this course is to teach modern standard which demands practical usage (it also teaches egyptian colloquial as for practical usage, it's best to know the colloquial dialect of any country you stay in or you will get made fun of a lot) whereas fushah is for understanding the Qur'an, sunnah and texts of the scholars, thus the grammar/translation method is best.
You can also speak to a native speaker online on a weekly basis with this course for some extra money to practice what you learn and become fluent in speech and the prices are very reasonable if I recall correctly.

Free, using the Madinah books: http://www.livefromdammaaj.blogspot.com/
However, the hours are crazy if you live pretty much anywhere in the western hemisphere.
