Arabic pronunciation

Develop native-like Arabic pronunciation with Kaleela

If you started to learn Arabic language, you might have noticed that it has a different writing system, different pronunciation and unique sounds. In fact, Arabic language is considered to be the language of the “Dhad”, which is an extremely unusual sound that was thought to be unique to Arabic. This should not intimidate you, as with a bit of practice you will see that Arabic pronunciation can be easily learned. Here’s how:

  • Surround yourself with the Arabic language. Watch (and listen to) anything in Arabic (TV, radio, podcasts, videos). By doing this, you will be able to passively recognize the patterns, sounds, accents, stress on words and letters, and intonation of the Arabic pronunciation. This should help you develop a decent and clear diction by the time you try to learn to speak Arabic more often. And Kaleela’s Arabic learning app includes a plethora of audios and videos meant to help the student.
  • Try to imitate native speakers. Arabic language can be taught as either Modern Standard Arabic or as Arabic dialects, and these can be different when spoken. One unique feature of Kaleela is that it also teaches Dialectal Arabic, where native speakers from all around the Arab world pronounce clearly the words that are specific to their region.
  • Exaggerate the sounds. Make sure to focus on how to pronounce the sounds correctly, especially since Arabic language might be different than your mother tongue. Speak them out loud with a higher intensity when pronouncing more difficult sounds so you can hear them clearly. You can always replay the audios in the Arabic learning app

This is why we believe that all the points above are good reasons to visit and the Arabic learning app. The app was created by native Arab specialists to fit the needs of non-Arabic speakers.
