About the Eastern Arabic Language
Eastern Arabic is the dialect spoken in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine. Eastern Arabic is also very well understood in the eastern and southeastern parts of the Arab world -- Arabia, the Gulf Region, and Iraq. Pimsleur’s Eastern Arabic is based on the dialect of Damascus, Syria.

Comments about Arabic (Eastern) I-II:
This is my second set. The first set was just a starter from a bookstore that had 5-6 CD's. They did not last very long and I was hesitant to buy the same brand of CD, fearing a short life of the disks.
But I am pleased with the progression,clarity and manner of male/female pronunciation with increments, phrase lengthening, grammar buildup, and so far with the subject material.
When I wish to know something more clearly I have to look it up in some of my other reference materials. Not all are Eastern and perhaps that is a good thing; to broaden my regionalisms.
Thank you for having choices of dialects in the Arabic language.
I put it on when falling asleep or driving. It repeats in my head at the oddest times. I look forward to knowing the correct answer. The pauses are about the right amount of time for answering.
