How To Use Your Phone For Arabic

Leave a comment

Assalam alaikum,

even though I went abroad to Egypt six years ago to learn Arabic when I remember my phone I was using whilst there I feel like a veteran. It was the Nokia 3210. A phone so old King Hendry the eighth used it lol.

Nowadays people are so fortunate.

As phones can now do more than allow you to call people.

So how can your phone allow you to use it to maximise and speed up your Arabic learning process?

These ideas might be obvious but hey I didn’t have these opportunities when I was 23.

Thanks to the smart phone you can,

  • Record your lessons. Online or offline. This allows you to replay the lesson in case you missed something the teacher said. If you’re studying in a group class online some institutes record lessons for students who missed the lesson audio and visual.
  • Join whats app chat groups to practice your Arabic writing skills. Having an Arabic keyboard on your phone allows you to write messages in Arabic to people worldwide. You can even send voice messages and call people on whats app for free.
  • Hold conversations online with other learners on language exchange websites. Much better than using a laptop.
  • Carry your class books as PDF files or ebooks on your phone so less for you to carry
  • You can make notes on word documents using Polaris office 5
  • Receive automated reminders about your future lesson days and times on SMS or email.
  • Access online learning videos, lectures Arabic reading material (newspapers etc)
  • Being able to check the meanings of words online. Much faster than flipping through pages

This means thanks to your smart phone you can practice for the first time all four languages skills easily. Forget your house you can now practice them on your bed.

A decent internet connection and voila you’re ready to go. You can even receive the same tuition you’d receive without having to travel abroad and at a fraction of the cost.

So if there are no barriers to learn Arabic what’s stopping us?

If anyone has any other ideas a smartphone can help others learn Arabic faster  please feel free to add in the comments below.

Thank you 🙂

wasalam alaikum
