Tandem is a popular language learning site and app which enables users to teach and help each other learn a foreign language. The app is available on iOS and Android and brings you into a community of language learners. Our Opinion: A great additional resource but not enough alone to achieve fluency in a foreign language.
Madinah Arabic is more of a hub of Arabic language resources than a dedicated resource itself. It provides a comprehensive overview of how to write Arabic and how to start speaking Arabic. It does not offer a popular, user-friendly way to learn Arabic. Instead, it is more of an academic, intense way to do so.
Bab.la is an online dictionary tool available in multiple languages, including English to Arabic and vice versa. It includes a dictionary, a verb conjugating tool, phrase exercises and a games section. A great, free resource to help with Arabic study, but obviously not enough alone to actually teach you Arabic.
