I thought that I was the only who decided to speak about that Israeli research claiming that our Arabic language is hard on the brain to learn but I was wrong
The post received a lot of attention and there is a fantastic debate about it.
Gabriel Nada at Global Voices discussed the matter and it seems that no only me who was interested in that research.
Taha Hussein once said that our Arabic language is easy not hard , he also said that Arabic can restore its position in the society when the society itself is functioning well. The dean of Arabic knew what he was speaking about , the golden age of Islamic empire was the golden age of Arabic that was the language of science and knowledge.
The fact that Arabic was neglected from a very long since the Othman rule harmed it so much especially many Arab countries replaced the Othman rule with western colonization that fought Arabic like the British and French colonization in North Africa then came the age of globalization.
Education plays an important role and considering the deliberate attempts of Arab regimes to make their people ignorant as much as possible to role them easily harmed our language more and more , it has nothing to do with the difficulty of the language more about the education policies just like occupation forces in any country.
This is generally speaking about the Arabic as first language not as a second language. It is quite logic that learners will meet difficulty in learning a second language especially when they are getting old. The Arabic language academies must understand the challenges they are facing , they can’t stand against modernity but they can join it by using the latest techniques in education to spread Arabic language.
