I was told that the best way to learn Arabic is to immerse yourself for a few months in an Arabic speaking country. Is this actually true? I don't have a background in Arabic at all so I don't know if this is the best way to start?

It definitely is one of the fastest way to build your vocabulary and get used to listening, reading, and talking the language fluently, as you would be forced, in many situations, to communicate with people who can only speak the Arabic language. So if possible, it is one of the *best* ways to immerse yourself, however it is not the only way to do so of course. With zero background in Arabic, it would be best to start with the basics of the language, as any, in an English class, until you're more comfortable to travel for a while and really immerse yourself to speed the learning process up!

It's true mostly if you're speaking Arabic 24/7. This means especially with the people you're living with. This forces you to only communicate in Arabic without an easy way out.
