Arabic Reading Course

ARABIC READING PRACTICE 3

  • In this lesson we will continue practising joining letters and reading, In-Shā’-Allâh (God willing). We will also practice reading words with:
    • /Sukūn/ - We should pronounce the letter sound with no vowel sound i.e. /Sukūn/ acts like a stop.
    • /Shaddah/ - We should increase emphasis on the letter which has the /Shaddah/.
    • Long vowel-marks - As we learnt in previous lessons there are 3 long vowel-marks; these lengthen the sound of the single vowel-marks.

Meaning

Final Form
(i.e. how the letters will look when joined)

Changed Form
(i.e. to see how each letter has changed - joined form)
