Pimsleur Arabic in Ten Days (Barnes and Noble Edition) based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
While I seem to be learning quickly from this program, I am slightly unsure if I am pronouncing thinks correctly. It would be awesome to have some kind of transcript or pronunciation key as to how to phonetically say these words. Other than that, I am enjoying learning something new, and impressing my best friend whos first language is Arabic. :)
I really have enjoyed this teaching tool. I like the way the pronunciation and explanations are clear. Plus the review of phrases and asking you to respond is very helpful. I know some of the words taught in this language kit would vary depending on the dialect but it still is a good start for a foundation.
It would be extremely helpful to know what dialect of Arabic this material is being presented in. The program owner's manual states that it is a 'standard 'educated' speech' version of Arabic. I am taking Standard Arabic in a class, and this is not what is being taught in these lessons. However, the method being used does let me rapidly catch on to what is being said in the dialect being used.
