How long does it take to learn Arabic?

Studies vary about the number of hours required to reach an advanced level in Arabic, ranging anywhere from 1750 to 2600, depending on several factors, such as native tongue, motivation, etc. Languages are divided into groups according to their levels of difficulty. Arabic is in the highest band, which is group five, next to Chinese, Japanese and Korean. English is level one on the other hand. To achieve a beginner's level, you need around 90 hours. For an intermediate level, an additional 360 hours, and for an advanced level, about 800 additional hours. Of course, the number of hours depends on the factors mentioned earlier. For some nationalities, learning Arabic will be easier, especially if they had exposure to the sounds of the language, for example through reciting the Quran, or having similar sounds in their language. While for others, such as native English speakers they will need to spend more time on listening activities and getting used to the sounds of the language.
