The Modern Standard Arabic Language
Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), also known as Standard Arabic or Literary Arabic, is the variety of Arabic used in writing and in formal speech. MSA is spoken by an estimated 300 million people world-wide. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. Modern Standard Arabic is the official language of all Arab countries, and is the only form of Arabic taught in schools at all levels. Because of this, MSA is the lingua franca of all educated Arabic-speakers, regardless of nationality or spoken native dialect. It is used in the news, schools, official documents, and courts of law. MSA bears great resemblance to Classical Arabic; the language of ancient poetry and the Qu'ran. The Arabic alphabet contains 28 basic letters and is read from right to left.

Comments about Pimsleur Arabic (Modern Standard) Level 1 Lessons 11-15 MP3:
I was able to communicate the basics in Jordan. Learning MSA it is best to communicate with educated people. This program provides the impetus for native speakers to want to speak with you. I believe this product to be viable for the Levant dialect, and Kuwaiti. You will experience some trouble with the Iraqi dialect, but if you know the Pimsleur MSA material, you can get the point across.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery to my Droid was quite painless despite low bandwidth. I have lessons 1-10 on an iPod, and 11-20 on the Droid. I definitely prefer the app for the Droid.
