King Saud University has launched an online project to help non-Arabic speakers learn Arabic for free via the internet. The Interactive Arabic Project can be accessed from any part of the world. The Interactive Arabic Project is a self-learning project and offers complete Arabic lessons. Those who choose to participate in the project are required to have a prior knowledge of the written form of the Arabic alphabet and how to pronounce the letters.
The Interactive Arabic Project focuses on vocabulary, structures, listening, speaking, reading and writing. In addition, the content demonstrates Arabic culture and some social aspects of everyday life in the Arab world.
Each unit will contain lessons and accompanying exercises on listening; vocabulary; grammatical structures; listening comprehension; speaking; reading; and writing. The project also includes three separate tests.
The Interactive Arabic Project also has its own facebook page where participants can “meet” and discuss the program.
