Al-kitab Al-asasi Volume I: A Basic Course for Teaching Arabic to Non-native Speakers (Arabic Edition)

Customer Reviews:

Completely unusable as language instruction and described erroneously

By Margaret A. Mcglinch "Peg" - January 26, 2010

I was eager to receive this product because I've been studying Modern Standard Arabic for a year and felt that I needed some supplementary materials to build a more practical vocabulary than the one presented in Al-Kitaab fii Ta'allum al-Arabiyya volume 1 (which is a different "Al-Kitaab" than this series, obviously). According to the description of the product, this should have met my needs perfectly. The only problem is that the actual product doesn't REMOTELY resemble what the product description advertises.

First of all, the only English in this book is on the back cover and on the publisher's page, so forget about learning any grammar. Let me repeat that--there is NOT ONE WORD OF ENGLISH anywhere in this book except on the back cover and on the inside front page, telling me what year it was published. Talk about deceptive!

Learning Arabic

By William Weathersby "WillW" - October 9, 2009

I have looked at just about every Arabic book on the market and just returned from Jordan where I took an intensive Arabic course. This is the book series that they prefer to teach non native speakers Arabic. Having used Al-Kitaab with Maha I can say that this series is much more useful in terms of vocabulary and the scenarios are definitely more real word. The one negative for the beginner is that it is all in Arabic so it doesn't explain the grammar as you will find in Al-Kitaab. Having used both books I prefer this one, but think that an absolute beginner might get frustrated with the lack of English to explain the grammar rules.

Great product!

By Muriel Laverty - August 13, 2009

This book is for my husband, who is learning Arabic. He has purchased just about every book for learning Arabic, and said that this program is the best, hands down. Not for someone who is just beginnng to learn Arabic, but best for someone who has a base of knowledge of the language.
