Welcome to Path to Arabic, My Name is Samir, one of the co founders of PTA.
In this welcome video, I will walk you through the features of this website, so you can start right away for free!
For the duration of your studies our program is designed to help you achieve your goal and learn Arabic in the most efficient way. In This quick tutorial, I will show you how to use and navigate the system, and I’ll explain the difference between engage package for start-up members and the Academy package for premium members
So, let’s dive right in and get started.
After you sign in and have access to your portal, you will see 4 levels in front of you from beginner to intermediate and advanced, only the chosen level will be unlocked. You can always change your current level on the preference page if you find it difficult or too easy. But we highly recommend for you to stick with the chosen Level just so that you do not miss on any important lessons which will help you towards other levels.
Just above the levels you have a box for you profile picture and we highly recommend to upload your photo so other students can see who you are and it would create a better engagement with our community. To add you photo simply click on edit button within the box to upload your photo.
To get started with your studies you have to click on a level that is unlocked, you will see all the lessons of that level on display and only one lesson will be unlocked at a time; the idea is to keep our students focused on the current task before moving to the next one. We want to ensure we teach you in a step by step fashion.
When you click on a lesson you will see 3 buttons in succession: video, Engage and unlock.
As a starter member for Engage package, you will have access to the Engage software studying and learning new vocabulary, grammar rules and pronunciation following a native speaker, after the lesson is fully understood you can then move on to the test, and once you pass the test the next lesson will be unlocked,
Engage software is a comprehensive and effective learning tool that can be used anywhere and in any mobile device provided you have internet access.
We also have the ‘PTA TV’ feature, we have uploaded many Arabic films and documentaries and we will continue to upload more videos that are interesting. The aim of this feature is for you to relax and watch Arabic films and documentaries, you might not understand anything or very little at early stages, but you will be improving your listening skills. Most importantly, you are picking up Arabic words and sentences unconsciously. We recommend for you to watch videos several times even if you do not understand at first. The language will become clearer as you progress towards your learning.
You can manage your account on the “Membership” page. You can access all your bonuses on this page.
The premium academy package includes all of engage features plus a lot more added features. Just as Engage package, only the chosen level will be unlocked, the video button will be accessible this time and you can watch the video lesson following you preferred teacher for the lesson as we have two to choose from for every lesson, the same material is used but the approach is different, you can watch both teachers if you wish to do so.
Everything that is covered in Engage will be explained on a video lesson, the teachers will take you by the hand and break down the vocabulary and especially grammar rules, some people are perfectly fine learning on their own and Engage alone would be perfectly sufficient, but others like myself for example needs further assistance and academy is the more adequate platform to fast track their learning, in fact it is a fast track learning tool for anybody, so Engage students are very welcome to upgrade to the premium academy package.
With academy package students get access to priority support from our teachers should they have any questions.
Whether you’re on Engage or Academy package we are very honoured to have you as part of our Path to Arabic community and we wish you all the very best with your studies, and remember that our goal is to help achieve your dream and learn Arabic, so if you ever have any questions or need any help we are here for you and so is our community.
Have fun with your studies.
