One way to learn Arabic is to memorize the Qur’an with a word-by-word translation. provides such a tool. Once you memorize a few (approximately 20-30) verses, you’ll find that other verses become decipherable, and familiar words leap at you everywhere you turn.

I recommend this method to everyone–for some, it’s the only way to memorize Qur’an.
