If you had a chance to study to learn Arabic oversees where would you go?
Where would you go to learn the Arabic in the Quran?
 
I know many places have their "version" of Arabic does learning say Arabic in Morocco help you to understand Quranic Arabic?
 
If someone were just starting to learn and wish to do more of an immersion program, as opposed to classes in US,  where might be best?
 
I am interested in peoples' opinions.
 
Thanks

Qatar, Bahrain or Saudi would be my choices in that order.

The American University in Cairo would be a great experience where you could take classes and get some immersion though you would pick up Egyptian dialect from that as well.  Some countries actually offer scholarships for new muslims to come study Arabic and the Quran.  I have not looked into it myself, but I have known women who have.  There are classes offered in Jordan as well.  Some are exchange programs through US universities and others are strictly for lanuage programs for foreigners.
 
The only reason I wouldn't recommend Saudi is because as women we have to deal with Mahram issues in Saudi and it can be difficult to get around without a male mahram or escort.  I am not sure what programs Saudi may even offer that a woman could go to.
 
I will see if I can find anything online that maybe helpful for you and post it once I find it.  I think it would be a great opportunity for you to learn.  Just make sure you look at all your options.

Is it that we can learn to speak arabic fluently if we learn  it online ? That shall be very helpful to me too. Earlier, i joined an institute, but cud not continue there.
 
Searchtruth.com does have an online course.

Here are some good links I found:
 
 
Also, if you have questions about what books would be good for self study and what are the best dictionaries I would be happy to help you with that.  There is a lot of arabic study books out there, but it is easy to buy the wrong ones and waste money when it wasn't necessary.  If your goal is to concentrate on Quranic arabic then you have to be even more careful because some dictionaries add a lot of dialect into them.  Please let me know if I can help you more in any way.

Auzubillahi minash shaitan ir Rajeem,

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Rahim
 
Assalamualiakum wa rahmatullah,
 
The online arabic courses on SunniPath Academy are specially designed to learn arabic with the aim of understanding Quran and Hadith. They follow the Sibawiyah curriculum which was fashioned to aid non-arab Muslims learn the language of the deen.
Further most of their teachers studied at Jordan, so I guess that would be a good place to go if I had a chance as that will provide a wider prospective of learning quranic sciences as well.
 
Allah knows best.

As-salaam alaykum warahamatullah wabarakatuh

I used to hear people talk about Jordan,Cairo,Saudi Arabia& a few other Countries in the African Continent.Well,I guess my brethren have spoken.I really haven't given it a serious thought between these options though,as I wish to do reasearch before making a decision.
