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

      I use the product to learn Chinese and Arabic. It not only helps me with memorizing it, but also my accent. I wouldn't learn it any other way!!

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

      This language is a requirement for my job. It is very hard to find the time to commit towards maintaing the language. With Pimsleur it fits perfectly into my commute to and from work. I am getting better every day. I have only given 4 stars because there is only one phase in the language I need. If they would add more phases to Arabic (Modern Standard) this would be a 6 star product.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I really would like to see them add more phases to Arabic (Modern Standard).

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

      This course review prior concepts for the first 15 minutes and the proceeds to new ones the next 15. I find this method perfect to cumulatively learn a language. Pimsleur's audio only method works wonderfully and I find that I can say things I would have thought I could say so quickly. I understand grammar and vocabulary with very little outside effort on my part. I will be waiting for the second installment.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I would focus more on describing myself as a student. It focuses more as if I had a family. I can say wife and children early on, but I cannot say my age or desicribe myself and education early on.

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

        The program is great and a much better alternative for those wishing to use Arabic for writing as the dialects can not be understood world-wide.

        An invaluable tool.
