These apps are a perfect introduction to Arabic and a no-stress, motivating way of beginning self-study while preparing you to participate in the Banaat Connect language exchange.
Before beginning the language exchange at Banaat Connect, we recommend that you be at an advanced beginner or intermediate level of Arabic to get the most out of the program. Not quite there yet? Or do you have a bit of brushing up to do? Look no further! Learning and improving a new language can be challenging, but apps and podcasts are an easy (and nearly always free!) way to add simple and consistent lessons to your daily routine. While crash courses may work for some, slow and persistent can be one of the most effective ways of learning a language. Remove the stress of a classroom setting by using these apps and podcasts to get you ready for our language exchange!
