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.

Use the blue button to play the audio tracks associated with Directions in Arabic. Then try recording yourself and compare your Arabic pronunciation with that of the native Arabic speaker. That’s right, with Rocket Arabic's voice recognition technology you can record your voice as many times as you need until your pronunciation matches the Arabic speaker!

And when you are ready test yourself using Testing (at the bottom of the page) and really power up your learning and recall.

Right turn in Arabic

Another more complete way of asking for directions is by saying…

Here’s a list of some places you might like to go to and places you may pass on the way to getting there.

Here are some words and phrases you might get to hear when asking for directions…

When someone gives you directions, they’ll tell you that you need to take such-and-such street; turn left, and then follow another street…

Now, you might want to know whether it is far or not…

That’s it for this lesson. I hope you enjoyed the lesson!
