You don't really have to learn arabic.
You have to learn how to pronounce it actually.
All Muslims pray in arabic, you have to learn the suras required and you have to learn them in arabic. But you do not need to learn the language itself. You can read the translations of Qur'an if you want to know what it means.
Arabic is only needed when you pray.

So, you need transliterations of Qur'an and audio files are very helpful, so you hear how it is pronounced properly.
If you really have the intention of learning it you should contact islamic communities in your town, local mosque or youth centers are good places to start.
In this age of information internet offers these things too, if you do not feel comfortable going to the mosque. Just google for Qur'an recitation and transliterations.
I am sure you can also find the descriptions of how exactly to pray, which suras you have to learn, when to pray, etc, etc.

Ahh, I should have been more clear.
Spiritual Islam is how I call it, a belief in God, prophets, holy books, but no active practice of religion, no prayers. It is just my philosophy.

That is good

Keep reading about it. It is important to have as much information as possible. There is a reason why you are drawn to it, something about it appeals to you. Try to find out what it is.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me or ask babyloi in his thread
