Polite words in Arabic

Ready to be on your best behavior? After this free audio lesson you’ll be able to say "thank you" in Arabic, "excuse me", "sorry", and use other polite words in Arabic and phrases with confidence. You’ll also know how to express your appreciation when someone is being helpful to you.

The Rocket Arabic team wants you to feel comfortable around native speakers right from the start, and a few courteous expressions can go a long way when you’re a beginner. We’ll show you the difference between formal and informal expressions, so you can be sure you’re using the right tone for the situation.

Listen carefully to the audio and practice saying the Arabic phrases aloud. Just as in your native language, speaking to Arabic-speaking people in a polite manner will win you friends and gain you respect, so it’s worth making the effort!

 You’ll have mastered these polite words in Arabic in no time!
