Comments about Arabic (Egy) Phase 1, Units 1-30:

If you have never used Pimsleur before, keep in mind that this is an audio method, so you will only learn to speak the language, not read or write it. If you want to learn to speak Arabic, this is a great program to use. The use of graduated interval recall is very effective in aiding memory. I converse with native Arabic speakers now with ease and confidence.

Comments about Arabic (Egy) Phase 1, Units 1-30:

I've learned basic conversational Egyptian Arabic and I can use it with my girlfriend. We've had a great time being able to say a few things to each other in her native language. I really wish there was a phase 2 available! I would buy it!

      Comments about Arabic (Egy) Phase 1, Units 1-30:

      I initially started getting interested in Arabic after travelling to North Africa. I tried several "learn on your own" type courses and, although informative and helpful, they eventually seemed to come up lacking. I would eventually lose interest. The Pimsleur Egyptian Arabic lessons have been stimulating and fun since the beginning. I really like the conversations in the course--listening to native speakers in brief exchanges. The lesson focusing on numbers seemed overly repetitive but that was probably because I was fairly familiar with the numbers to begin with. I've listened to the 30 lessons 3 times and would like to further courses offered in the future!
