Arabic as a means of communication and the language of Islam, it is also an international language. Arabic has not yet become an official language for the Indonesian people, but it is one of the mandatory lessons for Islamic educational institutions. In line with that, this study aims to map students’ experiences in learning Arabic. This study uses a qualitative method with the object of research being students of the Arabic language and literature study program. Students were interviewed privately and openly through a google form regarding their experiences in the process of learning Arabic. The findings of this study show that there are three kinds of challenges faced by students, namely challenges that come from internal language, challenges from students’ internal self, and challenges from external. This study concludes that learning any language can’t be separated from challenges, but the challenges of each individual experience differences and vary. In line with that there needs to be a solution from oneself (students) in facing these challenges.
