I really wanted to like this slim book, from the indie press, with the palm tree cover and the way it's designed to open and be read like actual Arabic books (rather than the majority of beginner's Arabic books, designed to open and be read the way English books are). But if I hadn't already learned the alphabet in an Arabic class, I would be learning the language through this book, not realizing its several pitfalls.

I'm using this to teach the alphabet to a couple of my Hebrew students who are beginning the study of Modern Standard Arabic.

There is so much I like about this thin volume, it's a pleasure to use.

This is a nice little workbook. Sure it doesn't get too detailed, but I used this to practice writing arabic script and picking up some basic vocab + a familiarity with everyday handwriting. The explanations given about each letter, as well as common handwriting, were very easy to understand. Next, I may explore Naglaa's book on grammar.

Would give this five stars, except that she teaches the Egyptian pronunciation of letters (e.g. hard 'g' for ج instead of the soft 'j' used by all other dialects, let alone classical Arabic), so can be confusing for beginners who are unaware of dialectical differences, or looking to learn classical Arabic. Otherwise, a great little resource!

An excellent beginner's guide. It got me reading arabic in a couple of weeks! Some great activities for learning the phonics and certain vocabulary letter by letter.
