Daria rated it it was amazing Oct 31, I functionao taken university level courses in Spanish, Japanese, and Korean before beginning Arabic, and have encountered many language textbooks dtandard varying quality.

Maybe I’ll bump my rating up at a later date, if I ever get around to reviewing the text in making a further attempt to learn Arabic; at this point though, I’ll admit that my blah opinion of this book might just be tunctional result of my blah experience in class and not through any fault of its own.

But I won’t get into those here.

It’s organized in the most asinine way, the graphics are photocopy quality, and there are misspellings and typos throughout in Arabic and English. In diaries, letters, and postcards, the two students describe their thoughts and activities, revealing how a non-American views American culture and how the Arabic culture is experienced by an American student.

A good begiinners text for learning Arabic – a mix of vocabulary, grammar rules, and short stories.
