This free online course will teach you the letters of the Arabic alphabet and let you practise reading simple words in Arabic.


The course contains 13 lessons, in each lesson you will:

  • learn two or three new letters from the Arabic alphabet
  • test yourself on recognising the new letters within words
  • test yourself on reading whole words that contain the new letters

In this course you learn the letters of the alphabet step by step.

You'll start by learning four letters only and practising these letters until you're comfortable with them. You'll then learn another two letters in the same way. Then another two and so on and so on.

By the end of the course you will be reading words that contain all the letters of the alphabet.
