For all those interested in learning Arabic, I just found this new and free online course of Modern Standard Arabic for complete beginners. It is absolutely free of charge and funded by the European Union, so it is very unlikely to be a spam. The course is called Arabic Online and it provides:
1. user-friendly and clearly organized units of learning that cover reading, listening, speaking and writing in Arabic;
2. integrated learning activities promoting relevant intercultural awareness;
3. integrated voice recording facilities;
4. permanent online availability;
5. and English, German, Italian, Lithuanian and Portuguese versions.
