What’s the path of success look like to learn Arabic fluently?
The diagram on the left is what I thought successfully learning Arabic would be like.
Many students also believe that learning Arabic will be one straight line up of progress.
The second diagram shows the true reality for the path of success.
When many students realize learning Arabic is not like the first diagram many start to become disheartened and eventually quit.
On your path there are many challenges you will face
Sickness which means missing lessons
Failing your exam and having to redo the level
Days you doubt your ability to learn Arabic
Days you feel like you’re not progressing at all
Days you feel you’re going backwards in your progress.
Days you’ll read a page in Arabic and realize you have not understood a word.
Not understanding grammar
Struggling to adjust to the foreign country you are learning Arabic
You’ll wake up some days not motivated
One of the biggest challenges you may face will be self doubt.
The setbacks you will face may very likely cause you to doubt your ability to learn Arabic.
So how do you keep the faith?
By staying active daily in your pursuit of your goal for fluency in Arabic. Everyday you should spend time in activities that will help you get closer to your goal. Such as listening to things in Arabic, talking online to other Arabic speakers etc.
For a list of what activities you can do daily please refer to my language plan.
The reason for staying active daily makes you feel that you are progressing gradually.
You become by what you think, say and do daily.
So as long as you are taking action daily then well done and rest assured you will reach your target.
Each challenge is a test of your mental strength and the strength of your desire to learn Arabic
So keep active daily and you can do it!
Thank you 🙂
