So Many Languages But Only One Divine

It is estimated that up to 7,000 different languages are spoken around the world. Most of these languages are used by less than 100,000 people. The world's most widely spoken languages by number of native speakers and as a second language, according to figures from UNESCO (The United Nations’ Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), are: Mandarin Chinese, English, Spanish, Hindi, Bengali, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese, German, French and the most sacred of them all Arabic. It is said that the ease or difficulty of learning another language can depend on your mother tongue. In general, the closer the second language is to the learner's native tongue and culture in terms of vocabulary, sounds or sentence structure, the easier acquisition will be. This can be true for other languages but not for Arabic for it has been found to be very easy to learn regardless of its complex nature. Thousands of people around the world learn spoken Arabic online and many learn the language during their Quranic Arabic lessons online and regular classes with online Quran tutor and teachers. There are incentives to learn spoken Arabic online or through other means such as attending an institute or language center.

Quranic Arabic lessons online cover all the tenants of Quran and Islamic education, from the simplest such as beginner’s Qaida to the most complex such as Tajweed and memorization. Quran lessons and Quran Arabic lessons are not necessarily the same thing. In Quran lessons, a person who has learned Arabic beings to learn the Quran and expand his or her knowledge through, Tafseer or memorization whereas in Quran Arabic lessons the primary focus is on the teaching of the language of Arabic in its classical form as opposed to modern Arabic for the Quran was revealed with the rules of Tajweed which today termed as being in classical Arabic.
