I highly recommend this book if one wishes to pursue a career in interpreting or translation as I have. This book, and the Beginner-Intermediate book provided me with the foundation to achieve a high degree of fluency in the Arabic language. Unfortunately, this book, and its sister book requires the assistance of an Arabic-speaking person/instructor, preferably from an Arabic-speaking country. I am attempting to write the United Nations Arabic interpreting exam, and this book has helped me greatly to prepare for it. A good buy!
