Arabic and Persian

What are the best online resources for learning either Arabic or Persian? Let's compile a list!

https://glossika.com/
https://www.udemy.com/

I haven't tried any of the language learning courses with the two above. I have been considering the first one because their learning method seems like it's worth trying:



As for Udemy, I've used a few of their online courses before, and I highly recommend them for learning a variety of things. I just haven't checked out their Arabic courses yet.

I tried learning from this and up to lesson 6 it was OK. The rest of the course is difficult without the handouts in use by those present, which don't seem to be available online. The course is based on that of the Madina books of Dr. Abu Raheem, which are available, but it is not identical with it.

The reason people learn a new language differs from person to person. One person may want to converse with Arabic and Persian (Farsi) speakers in their native languages, another may want to study it for pleasure (to better enjoy Arabic and Persian songs, movies, poetry, and so on), and yet another may want to learn it for a job. I cannot tell you why you would want to learn Arabic or Persian: that is something you would have to discover for yourself. Personally, I simply enjoy learning new languages.

This guy (Dr. Abdussamie) adheres even more closely to the Classic Arabic grammar than Br. Asif Meheralli in my previous link.

Another playlist of his with similar content (at http://bit.ly/1MMKUY2):

This lady has wonderful pronunciation which helped me a-lot. Ignore what she is
saying about Arabic. Listen to her pronunciation. Her course is not as
systematic as the others. A good, well organized grammar is at:
