Publisher's Summary

The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You'll be speaking and understanding in no time flat!

This course includes lessons 16-20 from the Modern Standard Arabic Level 3 program featuring 2.5 hours of language instruction. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons is included in each lesson. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension and on learning to speak Modern Standard Arabic.

The Modern Standard Arabic language (MSA), also known as Standard Arabic or Literary Arabic, is the variety of Arabic used in writing and in formal speech. MSA is spoken by an estimated 300 million people worldwide. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. Modern Standard Arabic is the official language of all Arab countries and is the only form of Arabic taught in schools at all levels. Because of this, MSA is the lingua franca of all educated Arabic speakers, regardless of nationality or spoken native dialect. It is used in the news, schools, official documents, and courts of law. MSA bears great resemblance to Classical Arabic, the language of ancient poetry and the Qu'ran. The Arabic alphabet contains 28 basic letters and is read from right to left.

there is no written guide, a pdf text

The method, the content and the recording of the lessons are very good. The only real problem I find is that there is no written guide, a pdf text, that could help the student to see the written form of these phrases and words. I already expressed that opinion and the need to have those texts in pdf to Audible some time ago, but the answer is that they do not exist, or they are not available. There are many more lessons from Pimsleur that I have not acquired because they do not have those transcripts that are so important for self-study of this difficult language. Jose Ranea
