Along with the standard features of any video player (play, pause, and volume), Moufeed’s player is equipped with:

1. Captions and subtitles

Each lesson comes with Arabic captions and English subtitles below the video.


To show or hide either of these, go to the gear icon on the video control bar Gear . Here you can adjust your preferences, as shown in the image below.


2. Speed control

To help you develop your Arabic listening skills, Moufeed’s player includes a speed control function. In the video control bar you can select the camel icon slow-function to slow down the video. Not slow enough? Select the snail slowest-function to slow down even more. Once selected, the icon will turn blue. To turn off the function, click on the icon again.

3. Transcript

  • The transcript marks the sentence that is currently playing.

  • When clicking on any sentence in the transcript, the video player will play that sentence.

The lesson

Moufeed’s lessons focus on the words and phrases that are particular to the vernaculars and cannot be found in a normal Modern Standard Arabic dictionary.

The lessons are divided into 5 sections:

1. Vocabulary vocabulary-section

2. Verbs verbs-section

Here you will find a list of verbs used in the video script in their infinitive form (he + past tense). By clicking on a verb you will see the verb’s meaning(s), conjugation in the he present, and how the verb is used in the video

3. Expressions expressions-section

This section contains cultural phrases and idioms used in the video. By clicking on any expression in the list you will see the usage of the expression in the video, the translation, the literal meaning, and how and when you can use this expression.

4. Video video-section

Here you can watch being used in practice, all the vocabulary, verbs, and expressions you were introduced to in the previous sections.

5. Exercises exercises-section

Each lesson has three types of exercises to help you memorizing what you have learnt. All exercises are made up out of the sentences explained in the first 3 sections.

  • Re-order the sentence words: You will see a sentence of which the words have been mixed up. Put the words in the order which was used in the video script, using drag and drop.
  • Match sentences: Match the Arabic sentence with its translation in English. You can drag and drop either to let it match its translation.
  • Guess the word: Select the missing word to fit in the sentence as it was used in the video.
