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!

            Comments about Arabic (Egyptian), Comprehensive:

            Great, effective product. There's not a lot out there for learning Egyptian Arabic but this is a highly detailed course and you'll be surprised as I was at how quickly you pick up on it. Very rewarding and practical. A lot of fun, just need more of it!

            Service and delivery comments:

            We need more levels please! Just the one phase isn't enough.
