Alhumdulilla we now have so many opportunities locally and via the internet to learn how to speak, read, write 'fusha' (formal) arabic instead of the am'miya slang arabic

Please feel free to share your experiences of how you went about learning the language of the Quran and the Sunnah (Hadith's) and any hints and tips to strenghthen and maintain the learning (eg: speaking only fusha arabic in the household, speaking only fusha arabic with the brothers/sisters you meet regularly even though you may not be from an arab background)

For those who are not sure, Sibawayh Centre in Egypt has a curriculum of book recommendations (to give you an idea what books/courses you might want to look at undertaking)

Sydney
* Australian College of Arabic | http://arabic.org.au
* Al-Ghazali Centre | http://alghazzali.org/events/arabic

Online
* Privately via Skype (and MSN|Yahoo Messenger type chat web-apps) - more information please ask other's who are also learning via this avenue, or google-search but please make sure it's genuine teaching
* http://Qibla.com (Qibla Online Islamic Academy)
* http://SeekersGuidance.org (Seekers Guidance Online Islamic Academy)

If there are other programs across Australia, please do list them on this thread to share with others

Even if it takes you four years (eg: January 2011 - December 2014) please have the niyat (intention) to do it, and genuinly try your very best. Also those who have mashaAllah already completed the course(s), please keep encouraging the rest of us to take the foot-steps to get a firm grasp of the fusha arabic

InshaAllah the video below is some food for thought

Alhumdulilla.... inshaAllah am trying myself to get there over a few years

Somethings I have found useful and inshaAllah may I be able to 'consistantly' implement it long-term:
* Do more dhikr and relax and at a nice pace (& not rushing) for about 5 minutes after each 'fard' prayer
* Keep good company & stay away from things that lead to sins
* Eat healthy foods and items like honey, currents, black seed oil -and- exercise regularly and get some fresh air daily
* Keep a set time for study (after fajr prayer until 15 mintues after sunrise - I noticed is a recommendation)
* After 'maghrib' adhan time "try" not to go on the PC/laptop/mobile phone/internet and study use the time between maghrib and isha to memorise & revise
* After 'isha' prayer - go to sleep inshaAllah if can -or- study for about 30 minutes after Isha and go to bed (this article talks about importance of sleeping after Isha prayer completion & health benefits)
* Wake up for 'tahajjud' at least 30 minutes before 'fajr' adhan (but ideally inshaAllah wake up 60-90 minutes before to perform tahajjud then go back to sleep) -or- study after tahajjud until fajr fard jamat prayer
* Study at least 15 minutes daily of the fusha terminology/words
* Read Quran (even if only one verse) after each fard prayer - so that the eyes regularly get used to the fusha arabic
* Speak fusha arabic with those around you - even if you feel shy or strange in the beginning

Any updates and how is everyone tracking in taking their first steps to learning fusha arabic? :)


The book set that I am learning from my teacher (currently up-to: Lesson 1 of Volume 1): Al-kitab Al-asasi Volume I: A Basic Course for Teaching Arabic to Non-native Speakers (Arabic Edition) || Volume 1 (comes with a interactive computer CD) || Volume 2 || Volume 3 || [Amazon.com links]


For those interested - 'Australian College of Arabic' Enrolements are now open (click here to register) and classes start inshaAllah 'Monday 31st January 2011' (Suite 33, 46 Wellington Rd, South Granville) [mashaAllah only a 650 meter walk to the South Granville GYA Masjid|Musallah] and venue is accessable via Guildford and Berala train stations and S2 bus [Veolia (Region 13)] & 908 bus [Veolia (Region 13)] stop at corner of Clyde St & Wellington Rd, South Granville

Asalam Alaykum,
im wondering if any one knows of somewhere in melbourne that has a good course for fusha arabic? I can already speak colloquial arabic due to my egyptian background but i struggle to understand all of fusha and can't really read without the naqts. Otherwise if not, is online the way to go? Also has anyone done an arabic course overseas that was quite good? I'm thinking of travelling soon, inshallah.
jazakaalah kheiren.

good topic

There is a specialist in tis field and they have a forum called lisanul-arab.org or something like that. the brother Amr has went through extensive work in translating some of the classic odes into english. He is an amazing individual when he expressed his knowledge of arabic.

I know of one student of knowledge who either meets, or possibly exceeds him in this realm, that be ustaadh abu taubah

asalamu alaikum,

salaam,

if you have a basic understanding of fusha try http://bayyinah.com/elearning/. great resource, helps to learn the rules of fusha w/out the cumbersome terminology bogging you down. start w/ unit 2. i review my notes from this course every few months. he also provides a long list of broken plural vocab as well as verb vocabs as you go thru sarf.
