As you are learning Arabic, you will probably find yourself looking for resources that can accelerate your progress. To help you with this, I have put together a list of some resources that I have found helpful.
I am only including here resources that I have either personally used for learning Arabic, or am personally familiar with. There may be other great resources out there, but unless I have used it or am very familiar with it, I will not recommend it to you.
Some of the resources below are free, and others are for purchase. I have marked a number of them with a * symbol after the name, indicating that these are products that, should you purchase them, will result in a small commission being paid to this blog. This will come at no extra charge to you, and helps me to cover the costs of running the blog and making as much useful information about learning Arabic available to you as I am able to write about. Only purchase products listed below if you think they will actually be of help to you.
