I am an Arabic language teacher at a major university in Detroit, the idea that the Arabic language is so hard is wrong, try to learn it if you are looking for a culture journey I am willing to tutoring. Learning a language is a gate to understand another people culture and the Arabic culture is so rich in poetry, literature, and arts.
I'll be starting Arabic classes taught at the local mosque soon. I think the emphasis at first is going to be learning to read/write the alphabet. It's been on my bucket list for a few years, so if you have any resources to suggest, I'd love to know.
I found Arabic hard, but a lot of that is because the writing system doesn't show all the vowels. I bought a language course that teaches "Gulf Arabic" using Roman letters throughout, and it was much easier work with, but I had nothing else to read after I reached the end of it and so I made no further progress, but I intend to get back to it some day when artificial intelligence makes the language more accessible.
