To me personally, ARABIC is one of the most beautiful language here in the planet. As a beginner, I find it difficult to say words with the "GH" and the "DAWD" sound. I know it is best to learn them with an Arab speaking person but my only problem is sometimes I got confused with how an Arab in Saudi says it differently with another Arab from other countries like Egyptian and Tunisian. The same Arabic word, different sound. But I am optimistic that I could learn this. practice. practice. practice!

This is a great post, Is there anyway for the word to be written out alphabetically to assist in pronunciation? For those who's speak native Arabic, besides a foreigner wanting to see the alphabetic spelling, what other times would this be used appropriately?
