Learning Al Jazeera

This site includes a host of language learning videos at different levels.  The link included here leads to the Beginner Level where some of the videos seem as though they are meant for children in their simplicity.  The content is clear, easy to follow, and varied.  There is a clear effort to present information in an immersion-type format.  Even the beginner videos are all in Arabic.

Mezzofanti Guild

With all the adds, this site might seem questionable.  But it is actually chuck full of great advice on strategies and approaches to learning Arabic.  It also provides reviews for some of the most (and less) common apps, books and other language learning tools out there.  Some of their recommendations link to sites that aren’t free, but Mezzofanit itself is free and the content is of good quality.
