Arabic speaking exercises

Speak Arabic fluently from day 1

Did you know that learning by doing is the most effective learning method? Practice Arabic a little bit every day and you’ll speak like a native forever! Start right now with these top 10 most common Arabic words and phrases pronounced by fluent Arabic speakers.

  1. 1. مرحبا. = Hello.

    First impressions matter. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Learning as little as “hello” in Arabic can work wonders in your interactions with the natives. So here’s exactly how to pronounce it:


  2. 2. كيف حالك؟ = How are you?

    The next polite thing to do is ask “how are you?”. Sometimes, you can even skip the hello and directly ask how things are going. Here’s how to pronounce it in Arabic:

    كيف حالك؟

  3. 3. ما اسمك؟ = What is your name?

    When you travel abroad, you usually make a lot of new friends. Whether we are talking about the nice stranger on the plane, your host or the driver, here’s how to ask them what their name is:

    ما اسمك؟

  4. 4. أنا سعيد بلقائك. = Nice to meet you.

    The natives will always regard your attempt to speak their language as a sign of respect towards their culture. Another basic phrase you can use when making new friends is “nice to meet you”. Click and listen to how is it pronounced:

    أنا سعيد بلقائك.

  5. 5. أرجوك. = Please.

    Manners are a must everywhere you go. And Saudi Arabia makes no exception. Saying “please” the right way and at the right time will open many doors in your path. To pronounce it in Arabic, you simply say:


  6. 6. شكرا لك. = Thank you.

    Mothers are the best thing that ever happened to us. Not only did they raise us, but they also taught us basic manners like saying “thank you” in the proper contexts. Following their example, here’s how to say “thank you” in Arabic:

    شكرا لك.

  7. 7. على الرحب و السعة. = You're welcome.

    It doesn't matter where you are in the world. Common sense translates the same in all languages. Here's how a person from Abu Dhabi would say “you’re welcome”:

    على الرحب و السعة.

  8. 8. ‫من فضلك!‬ = Excuse me!

    We only need 7 seconds to make an impression that may last a lifetime. And sometimes, the only difference between a good impression and a bad one is just a simple “excuse me”. Listen to how it's pronounced in Arabic:

    ‫من فضلك!‬

  9. 9. كم يكلف؟ = How much does it cost?

    Shopping sprees are an essential part of every city break. The vacation isn’t over until you buy souvenirs for each member of your family. So here’s how to ask “how much does it cost?” in Arabic:

    كم يكلف؟

  10. 10. مع السلامه. = Goodbye.

    If you want to maintain the good first impression you managed to make with your flawless Arabic greetings and introductions, end the conversation by saying “goodbye” exactly like a native:

    مع السلامه.

Arabic landmark

Arabic is an official language in 22 countries that form the Arab League, but the language is also spoken regularly in 7 more countries where there’s an important Muslim population. Muslim people worldwide, even though they are not Arabs, learn Arabic as well because Arabic is the language of Islam. As a result, Arabic is widely spoken in Pakistan, Indonesia, Iran, Spain and Malta. It is estimated that, in total, there are over 300 million Arabic speakers worldwide with only 200 million speakers living in the Arab World stretching from Southwest Asia to Northwest Africa.
It is important to know that there are two types of Arabic. There’s a Classical Arabic language called الفصحى (Fus-ha), the language in which the Quran, the Holy Book of Islam, is written. This is considered to be a formal type of Arabic which laid the foundations for Modern Arabic. Classical Arabic is still widely used today in writing, but less when speaking. The good news is that Modern Standard Arabic is similar to Classic Arabic, but easier. This is the language you’ll see spoken on television or written in most newspapers and modern Arabic literature. This is the form of Arabic you’ll be learning with Mondly.
