Arabic for Nerds

Get your weekly Arabic grammar dose!

The newsletter

Reading about Arabic grammar is usually as thrilling as reading telephone directories. Gerald Drißner uses a new approach: Every week, he will pick an interesting question drawing from his years of studies in the Arab world to create a colourful journey into Arabic grammar.

If you want to reach an advanced level, it is not about learning vocabulary lists - it is about understanding the fascinating core of Arabic. This is what this newsletter is all about. It is specifically intended for advanced learners and for anyone who has studied al-Madinah or al-Kitaab. The newsletter is free of charge!
