My app Beelinguapp shows texts in two different languages side by side, and it is an audiobook at the same. It shows a karaoke animation to follow the audio.
It has been getting some track lately and I would love to get some feedback!

Hi everyone! I'm Mikel, from Spain, and I'm new here. I'm very interested in the Arabic World, specially in their ancient story. I am an eager reader too and I love languages, so I would like to read classical Arabic literature in its original form. I learned from internet that most of it is written in Classical Arabic, a sofisticated version some of some scattered ancient dialects, a language developed between the 8th and 9th centuries, and that is the precursor of the Modern Standard Arabic. I don't have time to take lessons with a teacher, so I'm only going to be able to study for myself when I find time. I have looked for guide books on the internet and some of them are very nice, but the problem is that the explanations that they give concerning pronunciation are very technical and I can't understand them. I just want to find some basic explanations for the moment, not extremely poor ones, but neither too complex. I want to get that information , to know how it sounded more o less and be able to study it with more confort, and to try to recreate it in my mind. If anyone knows about some place where I can find those explanations without phonetic thechicalities, that is, in a more practical way, or even would want to bother to write them down here, at least the most important ones I would be more than obliged.
One more thing. I know that Modern Standard Arabic and Classical Arabic are very similar and I came across with a very interesting grammar book written by J A Haywood and H H M Nahmad that claims to be useful for both MSA and CA. Anyone who has used it can tell me if it works for the two of the versions? Because, even if it isn't my priority, learnig MSA would be also interesting for me.
Thank you very much!
It's not my site but...
I believe you all might find it useful. WordBrewery is a new website that pulls sentences from the news. They are then categorized by level and topic. There's also a search bar so you can find specific words in context. Audio, translation, and the source article are included.
It's also possible to save words and sentences to lists, and export these to Anki.
It's currently free to use. Like every other app, all you need to do is register.
I use it for German, as it doesn't have Hindi yet. But it's rather nice, because it's hard to find advanced materials for many languages I'm interested in, such as Modern Greek and Arabic. I use it as a warm up and to find context to words. I'm also considering using Anki, so if I decide to, I'll start exporting all my lists.

So I'm a long time linguaholic who has studied several languages but now I'm in a situation where it might be in my best interest to learn how to speak Arabic. I'm living in an area now with a considerable Arabic speaking population and Muslim culture here, and now whenever I'm out in the neighborhood I see and hear people speaking Arabic all the time so I think given my new neighborhood, it would be a good idea to learn some conversational Arabic. My goal is to be able to speak it and understand it when others speak it, but not necessarily to read or write it. Which dialect should I select as my new target language? Something specific or just standard Arabic? I believe my best bet would be to go for Darija (Moroccan Arabic) because I've identified some very strong Moroccan cultural influence in my new town. I don't know for sure what form of the language I keep hearing when I'm out though, so I'm unsure how to go about starting this new language project of mine. Again, my goal is to verbally communicate with the Arabic speaking population where I'm now living. Any advice from others studying Arabic would be welcome as I'm a beginner with no background in the language and I'm unsure how to begin.
