   The best introduction to arabic phonology and writing systems
This book shows how Arabic is written and pronounced. I studied the full content of the books for a month, at the end of which I had a solid base of knowledge on the arabic language. The books cover all the sounds and give a lot of exercises to master them, often comparing them to sounds in English or other European languages, which helps to make the articulation of some difficult sounds possible. It gives a lot of time to practice arabic writting. I wish I could have a book like this for every language.
   An Excellent Multi-Media Introduction to Arabic
I used the book, along with audio cassettes, video cassette, and answer key with a group of students. I have never seen a presentation like this before. The text contains exercises in reading, writing, and sound identification. The video cassette dialogs are transcribed in the appendix, even though it isn't designed to teach much. Even though I' ve been studying Arabic for a decade, this book helped fill some of the gaps in my knowledge.
   Good book, bought it for a class
This is a good book, but I think they could have done a better job with the vocabulary list. When they use a word, they need to give a definition, and I only knew what they were after asking my Arabic teacher. The DVD didn't have all of the words and defintions, so it was incomplete. It's a good book for learning some basic pronunciation rules, and it's a good book for teaching how to write the Arabic alphabet. A very good book for learning the basics of the alphabet, but other books are needed to learn vocabulary or talk.
   A quality product with excellent CD to support the lessons.
While only a beginner, I am very pleased with the quality of the material. The text is well- organized and written in a very motivational style, and the CD is very crisp and clear.
This is a good book for learning how to write arabic script. If you' re getting bogged down, you can skip some things if you don't feel like doing them. It takes a lot of practice to learn a foreign alphabet, and there is no way to get around it if you want to write arabic. This book is a companion to the arabic bookcourse al kitaab fii taallum al- arabiyya, which is an awful book, although some may be enamored of its experimental methods. If you want to learn arabic, try a book like teach yourself arabic and skip al kitaab.
