Addressing Arabic Transcription -Arabic Lesson For Beginners – fasiharabic.comThe transcription I use in this book is a widely used and universally recognized
method of transcribing Arabic to English. Students of Arabic across the
United States and around the world use this method. It’s very helpful for
beginners because it allows you to speak the language without actually knowing
how to read Arabic script.
In the transcription method used in this book, every letter in Arabic is represented
by a letter in Roman script. It’s important to note that this method is
case-sensitive, which means that a lowercase Roman letter represents a different
letter in the Arabic script than a capital Roman letter.
Transcription is a very helpful tool for beginners, but it’s recommended that
intermediate and advanced students of Arabic master the fundamentals of
the Arabic script.
