Directions in Arabic
Getting directions in Arabic will be much easier after this free audio lesson. The Rocket Arabic team is here to arm you with the Arabic words and phrases you’ll need to find your way around an Arabic-speaking country.
Unfortunately it’s not quite as simple as learning the word for 'where' in Arabic and a few Arabic road signs - as you may have already guessed, understanding the directions you are given can be more challenging than asking the questions!
But don’t worry, a little practice is all you need – listen to the Arabic pronunciation in the audio and say the Arabic words and phrases aloud, as you imagine yourself strolling around Cairo or Alexandria.
Pronunciation help for directions in Arabic
As hard as you try, without helpful feedback your Arabic pronunciation is never going to be the same as a native speaker’s. If you've found it difficult to perfect the way you say Arabic words and phrases, this lesson will help you.
Using the blue Rocket Record buttons you can record the way you say each word or phrase, and compare it with the way a native speaker of Arabic does. That’s right, with Rocket Languages voice mapping technology you can record your voice as many times as you need until your pronunciation matches the Arabic speaker!
