Great for Learning

This Audio book is great for listening while driving, working out, or anytime when you can find time. It really helps with the pronunciation of the Arabic words and is in the spoken language. I am using these audio books in conjunction with having a tutor. I find the repetition and way this book is set up has helped me learn faster than just relying on a tutor. It teaches you male vs female and main conversational points. If you're learning the spoken language and want people in Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon to be able to understand you, these audio books are great.

Dialect

It was really good practicing with this but of course, in person would be more beneficial for language immersion. This is good for word and concept immersion though. We will not be able to know we speak with another brother or sister from these regions specifically.

Learning Arabic while not doing anything

This is a great way of learning Arabic, I would have never thought that it would be this easy to learn a language just by laying on my bed with my eyes closed, not doing anything, not having a paper and pen around.

Obviously, Arabic has other challenges like its writing and spelling and its standard dialect, but in order to learn the spoken dialects Pimsleur's method is indeed an exceptional technique.
Can't wait to follow the course.

Disclaimer: I've been studying MSA for quite a while and I think this Arabic (East) course starts off a little bit slowly, however, as the lessons and units are significantly building on each other, I suggest one starts from the beginning.
