Modern Standard Arabic, or MSA, is the standard, formal, written form that is used and understood throughout the Arab world. While primarily written, MSA is also spoken in highly formal situations, in higher education, in sermons, and in the courts of law.

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile)
I've tried heaps of different audiobooks to try to learn Arabic and this series been the most effective. The method of teaching works so well and I found myself remembering far more words and subsequently building my vocabulary much more quickly than when I tried some other books. Definitely recommend. Will be buying the next audiobook in the series for sure!
"Brilliant. Really enjoyable"
I feel like I've learnt loads of Arabic. Buy it. Buy it. Buy it. The only negative and its a tiny negative is that the speed is a little fast but thankfully with audible you can slow it down, so I set mine slower and it was great. I can't wait to practice my Arabic now with my husband's family.
