  1. Hey guys. I've been doing Glossika for modern standard Arabic for a while now, and I personally like it. But, I have been browsing online and have seen some people post that there are a lot of mistakes in several of their programs. I wouldn't want to memorize/integrate bad habits and sentence structures into my mind. So, if any of you have any experience with their Arabic course, would you recommend it?

Is reading books and google translating words I don't know a good idea? I think
  4. Hey guys. I'm very happy to be joining this forum. I've recently began studying Egyptian dialect of Arabic and have completed the foundation and advanced courses of Michel Thomas. I'd like to continue my studies, but not sure what the best approach would be to build off of my base. I was recently memorizing words out of a dictionary but I have come to the conclusion that's not necessarily the best approach to take. I've been thinking about watching movies in Egyptian Arabic and translate certain words I keep hearing into English so that I can put some context to it. My only problem is that I a
