BBC Arabic Online Radio


Although this online Radio station is designed for a native-Arabic audience and Advanced Arabic Learners, there is a lot of useful and basic vocabulary and expressions you may be able to pick up, especially when they broadcast bilingual Arabic-English programmes. (e.g. Song Lines)

Song Lines is an Interactive Radio programme in Arabic where English Music is used as a teaching tool to teach English to Arabic speakers.

In Song Lines you can learn useful Arabic phrases with the stars of rock and pop music.

There is a nice collection of short audio clips with explanations in Arabic of the songs’ titles.

You may also request from BBC Xtra to broadcast your favourite song and expalain it in Arabic

Go to Song Lines page تعّلم الإنجليزية من خلال الأغانى (i.e. Learn English through Music)
Also, when they have English-speaking guests, the Radio host always makes sure to interpret in Arabic what the guest is saying.

  1. On BBC Xtra (Arabic)there was an episode about Greek music whether the effect was onTurkish music or the other way round.To my knowledge there was Roman music Greek music etc. To the best of my knowlege previous greek music was nothing like the greek music of today.The modern greek music is the effect of Turkish music eg the Buzuki is not a Greek instrument.The effect came after Turkish occupation of some parts of Eastern Europe as in food and other social effects.

  2. استمعت منذ عدة سنوات مضت الى اغنية لسعدون جابر وهو يعزف على العود منفردا واتذكر بعضا من كلمات هذة الاغنية تقول الكلمات(لا يا برد الصبح لاتجرح جفونها صغيره وكواها العشق والقنطرة بعيدة) اريد ان استمع الى هذة الاغنيه مرة اخرى
