First of All, Who am I?

Hello, my name’s Amira Zaki, and I’m the host of Rocket Arabic. I come from the beautiful country of Egypt, which means Arabic is my native language. That also means that I know just how hard it can be to learn a new language, because I’ve been there learning English. Together with my English speaking colleagues, Erica and Hany, I want to help you to speak and understand Egyptian Arabic while cutting your learning time in half.

I’ve travelled the world over and have found that languages are a great way to meet people and discover new things. I really want to make your Arabic learning experience rewarding and fun!

My goal, just like Rocket Languages’, is to help you reach your goal.

How to Understand Spoken Arabic with Testing

Most of our Arabic lessons take advantage of Testing, our exclusive testing tool. Testing has three testing components, Hear It Say It!, Write It!, and Know It! Plus the multi-choice Quiz.

1. Hear it Say it!

Training your ear for Arabic can be one of the things that Arabic learners find the hardest to master. That’s why we came up with Hear It Say It!

Here’s how Hear lt Say It! works. A randomly selected audio track from within each lesson is played. After listening to the track you’re prompted to record yourself saying the word, compare the way you say it to the Arabic speaker, and rate how well you understand what the speaker was saying. A very powerful tool to tune your ear to spoken Arabic!

2. Write it!

It's one thing being able to pronounce Egyptian Arabic words correctly, it's quite another figuring out how those sounds turn into written words.

Write It! is the self-testing tool that lets you find out how well developed your Arabic ear really is. Just listen to the native speaker saying a word or phrase, then try to write it correctly in the space provided. There's a special character keyboard available if you need it, so you can get it exactly right.

When you're done click reveal, and you get to see how well you did, and get a rating for that word or phrase.

3. Know it!

Now, all the training in the world won’t help you if someone is talking to you in Arabic and your mind freezes when it’s your turn to speak! That’s why we developed Know It! The self-testing tool that really puts you on the spot!

Know It! pulls randomly selected English words and phrases out of each lesson and prompts you to record yourself saying the Egyptian Arabic translation, compare yourself to the Arabic speaker, and then rate how well you did! You really need to know your stuff for this one but the benefits are huge in maximizing how quickly you can come up with the right thing to say when someone is speaking Arabic to you!
