Learning Arabic

Hello everyone,

Wondered if anyone had info on resources in Kuwait for learning the lingo here.

Any information on courses, home tutors , online learning that anyone has found useful would be most welcome.

Thank you

Jax

Hey,

Me too looking for a good Arabic teacher (preferably in Mahboula/Mangaf/Fahaheel/Fintas area).. A couple of frnz tried learning Arabic by going to these classes at the Aware Centre, but they were not very happy about it and asked me not to go thr to learn the language..

Anyone out thr who knows if thr r any good Arabic classes here or about someone who can teach Arabic??

Thanx!

Hi Life is Fun,

Why did your friends not like the Aware Centre? Aware has been suggested to me only this morning by member of British Ladies Society although there was no one there who has been to this centre.

Jax

I'd like to learn Arabic also. if anyone have tutor or class at Friday please let me in.

Hi Jax,

My friends who went to Aware Centre told me that its not as good as they expected it to be. Not worth driving that far for a class with too many people studying in one batch n after a few classes they realised that it wasnt going anywhr and dint continue learning the language thr. Maybe the teacher wasnt that great or something. So no Aware Centre for me n I am looking for someone who cud come over and teach us Arabic at our place or has some serious classes going on with less number of ppl in Mahboula or someplace nearby.
Sorry to dissapoint you Jax.. But Im sure thr's got to be someplace serious enuf out here whr we can learn d language :)

Well for starters you can pick up the "Speak Kuwaiti" book, you can find it in the book store in Fahaheel next to McDonalds, it's a pretty good book although there are a few incorrect pronounciations but it's a start. I agree that the AWARE center was not the best place when I took a class there as it was unorganized and by the last day there were 4 people left which included my sister and I, the distance and traffic is hard as well. There is a channel on youtube that teaches Arabic by a Kuwaiti guy, just a few things to look into until you find that class.

Hey,
Thanx for your suggestions.. Book sounds like a good start till I find someone to teach me d language f2f..
Cheers!

Hi all hopeful arabic communicators,

Likewise thank you for your info.

I have found a home tutor site kuwait.myprivatetutor.com and have E Mailed a tutor in my area which is Salwa. Looks like other tutors may be willing to do groups as well.

There was also an online resource called livemocha which looked interesting.

IPC IS GOOD CENTER FOR LEARING ARABIC. EVERYWHERE OF KUWAIT THERE IS  BRANCH OF IPC . GO THERE SEARCH BECAUSE THEY HAVE PERTICULAR TIME FOR PROVIDING TUTION.

why pay for something you can get for free? make friends and learn the lingo thru them :) u get a bonus of having fun as well as learning, plus u'll pick up quite a few dialects (not to mention learn an uber amount of useful "expressions of discontent" if u know what i mean ^^ )

Hi Legacy,

I am all for meeting Kuwaitis, making friendships learning the language from them. I agree this is the best way to do it. But what groups would I be looking at/where to meet them?

This is my third week here and so far I am mixing with expats from UK mainly. I would love to mix with other nationalities. UK is soooooooooo boring!!!!!  ( Only kidding UK bods but I really want to spread my wings whilst here in Kuwait )

Jax

well im not sure how to go about attracting Kuwaiti's, maybe with some machboos (a Kuwaiti dish)? :P

there are 3 ways i'll share with u:

1) subscribe to EEK magazine - a weekly .pdf with all the happenings in kuwait for expats

2) go to meetup.com and join the groups for Kuwait

3) grapevinekuwait.com - blog for all events in kuwait

and then just put yourself out there and be amazed :)

Hi Motazmaher,

this is an old thread. It would be better if you drop an advert in the Kuwait classifiedsunder the Language exchange section so that interested members may contact you.

All the best,
Bhavna
