Home UAE Abu Dhabi Abu Dhabi’s Alef Education launches AI app for language learning Alef Education is targeting more than six million non-Arabic speaking expatriates by Zainab Mansoor January 25, 2021 Abu Dhabi-based edtech company Alef Education has launched Arabits, an AI-powered mobile app for Arabic language learners to develop their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Via this app, Alef Education is targeting more than six million non-Arabic speaking expatriates who work and do business in the UAE, in addition to the student population. It is the same company that developed an AI-driven digital platform that has been helping students achieve better learning outcomes in schools across the UAE, USA, and Canada. Dr. Abrar Abdulnabi, head of Arabits and Arabic AI Technology, said: “We are proud to launch Arabits, which is an Arabic language learning app powered by AI that incorporates machine learning solutions for handwriting and speech recognition that gives live feedback to users. For Arabits, it was important to transform the cutting-edge AI solutions being integrated in the app to allow users to interact, advance and improve their Arabic language skills.” Leveraging Alef Education’s experience and technology, Arabits’ learning modules are designed by education professionals and enriched by machine learning to help language learners develop their Arabic reading, handwriting and conversation skills bit by bit, while progressing through attainment-based levels. The app is aligned with the UAE Ministry of Education Framework for learning Arabic as an additional language, empowering young learners from all backgrounds to meet the grade level requirements for Arabic in the UAE. “Arabits is created by experienced education professionals and AI Arabic language experts to help learners, practice and improve their Arabic-language skills in a manner that suits each learners’ capabilities and learning style. Our ultimate goal is to help everyone learn Arabic. We aim to contribute to the UAE’s efforts of modernising the teaching and learning of the Arabic language; and, we hope, make learning Arabic fun and easy for everyone,” Dr. Abrar concluded.
