Feedback on this course: https://community.memrise.com/t/audio-error-arabic-5-level-7-chatting-about-stars/27737:


The phrase is, “انه لاعب العام.” The female voice, however, says, “انه لاعب العالم.” She says, “العالم” instead of “العام:” “world” instead of “year.”"

Hi Peeppeep,

I just joined a few days ago. This is my first response to anything written in a forum, though I did post about an error I found. Regarding your points about the pronunciation of some of the letters, I do not think it was the intent of the content providers to give the names of the letters but to give the sounds they make: thus, ل or L makes the sound “la” and not intending to give the letter name of “Lam.” Hope that makes more sense.

No ,It actually means young …but no one use it at all… but in Arabic we use صغير … صغير it means young and also means small…

(Echenet12) #147

Oh ok. I didn’t know that.

(Mila83) #148

Arabic is a very rich language. So “young” have many translations according to the age period.
The adjective صغير is in general used for children.

P.S: ok, now don’t get sad, most of these words are not used on a daily basis.

(Mr.Nader) #149

Most of this words are not used at all .

Hi everyone, why Arabic memrise course have 3 forms of letters on code cracker? Arabic have 4 and 2 forms, and further memrise used forms about memrise even not told, no single form in code cracker. Also only 21 letters, when Arabic have 28 letters

Arabic. Level 3. One thing is written, but the phrase is slightly different when pronounced.

(Hi Fi Guy) #152

New to Memrise (just bought a year subscription) and have a few questions about the Arabic course.

  • Many of the words and phrases are different from what native speakers here in Oman say. Examples: yes, good morning, good evening, thank you, and other very common words/phrases are completely different.
  • Are there any phonetic pronunciation tools in the app? Listening is good but I think I would learn how to say the words more quickly with some sort of pronunciation tools.
  • Are there any lessons with photos or graphic images or is it only English/Arabic text?

Thanks in advance for all replies. I look forward to taking my Arabic skills to the next level.

I just wanted to let you know about an inconsistency between the text and speech.

In Arabic 2: Level 8, for ‘they’re my favourite’, the text says ‘mufaDaloon’ but the sound says ‘mufaDaleen’. Which is more grammatically correct and can the text or speech be fixed? Thank you.

Also, I’ve come across a few audios so far that are in a dialect accent (e.g. ‘yoogadu’ instead of ‘yoojadoo’). I’m not sure if they were left on purpose but they’re really confusing.

I’ve been using the Omani Arabic lessons for the last year (made by a user called Banyanroot). It’s a great course to get started but uses the latin script for phonetics and doesn’t have pronunciation.

I’ve been using the vocab in that course and making my own flash cards with Anki, recording my friends here to get authentic pronunciation. I’m thinking about putting all this stuff up here in a new course too, I think that making the course should help cement my own learning.

I’ll keep you posted!

Arabic, level 2: In the section on talking about time I think there’s a mistranslation. It says ‘ten to four’ (3:50) but the Arabic wording and literal translation mean ten PAST four (4:10).

Arabic 3, level 1: Mistake on the audio for Norway. The man’s audio says:


But then
