Overview

This new Arabic language textbook program uses a communicative, proficiency-oriented approach with fully integrated audiovisual media to teach modern Arabic as a living language. Intended primarily for college and graduate students but accessible enough for anyone, the series focuses on developing skills in standard Arabic and gradually introducing students to Egyptian Arabic, the most widely spoken dialect in the Arabic-speaking world.

Exceptional Book!  Far better than anything else out there!  The book comes with a Disc with practice exercises that you can load on iTunes. The words are divided into Egyptian, Levantine, and Formal Arabic, although my experience in the service found overlap.
