Welcome to A Linguistic Approach to Arabic Pronunciation!

A good Arabic accent is hard to get.

The aim of this course is to make pronouncing Arabic make sense to an English speaker through simple spoken practice.

Please note that this course does not aim to teach writing the letters. Letters will be presented separated and left-to-right.

Note that this course is contained entirely in the notes at the bottom. The lessons only offer guidance and additional detail.
