    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.

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

          I enjoyed using this product and only wish there had been parts 2 and 3. I've since used the Easter Arabic parts 1, 2 and 3, but since I'm actually of Egyptian descent, this dialects more appropriate for me. The system's on point and as I mentioned in the Easter Arabic thread, it reconfigures the way you think in response to your interlocutor and therefore articulate those thoughts back. Most language courses focus mainly on reading and listening and understanding dialogues, but what this course does it focus on teaching you to actually speak the language, which is what most people intend when embarking on such a journey.

          Service and delivery comments:

          They should definitely produce levels 2 and 3! They should also have a complete transcript of the entire course for the benefit of those that maybe be mispronouncing words.

            It works when I talk to my Egyptian colleague, who was so impressed: "You are the first foreigner that I know who speaks Egyptian Arabic."
            I strongly demand Phase 2, 3...
