Sugar Comes from Arabic
This approach will have you writing beautiful Arabic letters on your own in no time!
This book is a user-friendly Arabic alphabet-and-culture book for complete beginners.No other Arabic alphabet book demystifies the letters in such a comfortable way, introducing them in the English alphabetical order and using English spelling for names and words as a way to learn Arabic.This book takes a fun and unique approach to language. Come meet the Arabic alphabet, which is actually a cousin of the English one. These two alphabets, which have become the two most widely-used alphabets on earth, are descended from a common ancestor—Phoenician. Although English and Arabic letters look different from each other, most of their sounds match exactly. The two alphabets even have almost the same number of letters: English has 26; Arabic has 28.This book makes it easy for beginners to learn Arabic letters, and to have the beauty of Arabic at their fingertips. The quickest way to get comfortable with a new alphabet is to try writing your own name with it. With this book, you can learn how to write both common English names like Anna and Al in Arabic, and also well-known Arabic ones, like Kareem and Latifah. Simple stick-figure cartoons show how to draw and remember each letter. Color photographs and explorations of individual words reveal important and often unrecognized connections between the West and the Arab world, such as the delicious gift of sugar received from the Arab world, which inspired the title of this work. Along the way, you'll learn about some of the bounty the West has received from Arab civilization, including many of its words. What would life be like without sugar or coffee – not to mention lemons, sofas, satin, chemistry, magazines, algebra, and the concept of zero? All these are gifts from the Arab world, examples of words and foods, technologies and mathematical ideas, inherited from that world. Some of our greatest achievements have been built on these gifts.Sugar Comes from Arabic is an exciting introduction to the language of more than twenty countries and more than 300 million people. The book is an irresistible way to raise cultural literacy – Arabic is too important an alphabet for it to remain foreign and unapproachable to our eyes. Soon you'll discover that it isn't so hard.How This Book WorksThis is the first Arabic alphabet book that helps users find Arabic letters easily by putting them in the familiar order of the English alphabet. Looking for a letter that makes the b sound? Look it up between A and C. Under each English alphabet letter in this book, you’ll find:

Kullu Tamam! (With Audio CD)
Presents a wide range of pattern drills and translation exercises (with key).
Manfred Woidich and Rabha Heinen-Nasr
There are basically two types of Arabic: the local vernaculars—which are used in everyday life—and Modern Standard Arabic, which is restricted to writing and to speaking in formal settings. Anyone wanting to have a good command of the Arabic language must learn both varieties. Kullu Tamam! takes account of this diversity in two ways: it introduces the student to the language by means of Egyptian Colloquial Arabic, and provides a basis for those who want to go on to learn Modern Standard Arabic. This is done by using the grammatical terminology common to both varieties of Arabic, by offering many vocabulary items current in both the vernacular and the standard variety, and—in the later lessons—by introducing the Arabic script. Kullu Tamam! uses a cognitively oriented approach, presents Arabic mainly in transcription, gives grammatical rules, and presents a wide range of pattern drills and translation exercises (with key), as well as vocabulary lists for both Arabic–English and English–Arabic. Illustrative texts are either short dialogues, as may be encountered in daily life in Egypt, or descriptive passages dealing with more abstract topics and using a vocabulary typical of Arabic newspapers. The accompanying audio CD carries recordings of the texts, made by Egyptian native speakers. For over ten years now, the Dutch edition of Kullu Tamam! has been used successfully as a textbook in first-year Arabic courses at the university level in the Netherlands. Now students in the English-speaking world can benefit from its clear, fresh approach. Kullu Tamam! is also suitable for self-study purposes.

Learn to Speak and Understand Arabic with Pimsleur Language Programs
Dr. Paul Pimsleur
This Comprehensive Arabic (Eastern) program includes 30 lessons of essential grammar and vocabulary: 16 hours of real-life spoken practice sessions, plus an introduction to reading. A Reading Booklet and a User’s Guide are included to introduce you to the Pimsleur Method. The Pimsleur approach is so effective because it is based on tried and tested techniques and principles that enable rapid and successful language learning.Devised by language educator Dr. Paul Pimsleur, Simon and Schuster’s Pimsleur Language courses provide the listener with a comprehensive, self instructional, step-by-step guide on how to learn a new language. The unique audio method allows the listener to learn pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar without repetitive rote learning, in a similar way to how we acquired our native language components. On the surface, the Pimsleur Method is a way to begin speaking and understanding a foreign language effortlessly. In fact, it is a dynamic combination of techniques that will pull you inside a language allowing you to engage in complex conversations with confidence and fluency. Developed after years of research (and through much trial and error), Pimsleur Language Programs are an effective method for teaching people to speak foreign languages. Dr. Paul Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was a leading expert in applied linguistics.

Pimsleur Basic Egyptian Arabic (5 Audio CDs)
This basic program contains 5 hours of audio-only, effective language learning with real-life spoken practice sessions. Pimsleur's "basic" programs are created especially to guide listeners through the initial stages of learning a language. The 30-minute CDs are perfect for optimal learning in one sitting.
Dr. Pimsleur's extremely accessible and successful program teaches you language in the same way a native speaker would - through exposure to everyday, normal conversations. Instead of chopping up a foreign language into a little bit of grammar with a dash of vocabulary, he presents the language as a complete course. And rather than memorizing repetitive drills that only dull learning, Dr. Pimsleur's "input/output" system of learning actually challenges your brain. By teaching information, and afterwards asking you to recall what you've learned, your brain transitions the language from short term to long term memory, leading to successful fluency.
This course is audio based; 5 CDs are included with two 30 minute lessons per CD. There are no workbooks and note taking is discouraged as speaking and listening is emphasized. CDs come in a black, zippered CD case. This course teaches the dialect of Egyptian Arabic, which is the standard for spoken Egyptain Arabic.
Pimsleur Conversational Egyptian Arabic (8 Audio CDs)
Learn to speak and understand Arabic quickly with Pimsleur Language Programs.
This conversational program contains 8 hours of interactive audio-only instruction, effective language learning with real-life spoken practice sessions.
The Pimsleur Method provides the most effective language-learning program ever developed. The Pimsleur Method gives you quick command of Egyptian Arabic structure without tedious drills. Learning to speak Egyptian Arabic can actually be enjoyable and rewarding.
The key reason most people struggle with new languages is that they aren't given proper instruction, only bits and pieces of a language. Other language programs sell only these pieces -- dictionaries, grammar books and instructions, lists of hundreds or thousands words and definitions, or audios containing useless drills. They leave it to you to assemble these pieces as you try to speak. Pimsleur enables you to spend your time learning to speak the language rather than just studying its parts.
When you were learning English, could you speak before you knew how to conjugate verbs? Of course you could. That learning process is what Pimsleur replicates. Pimsleur presents the whole language as one integrated piece so you can succeed.

Richard S. Harrell, Mohammed Abu-Talib and William S. Carroll
A Basic Course is a textbook in spoken Moroccan Arabic that is written for beginners who are unfamiliar with the Arabic language, alphabet, pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. Written in Latinate transcription, it is carefully designed to present these elements in a progressive, user-friendly, step-by-step manner.

These sections also contain exercises in new grammar and vocabulary. Each lesson is structured in a way that guides the learner naturally and comfortably into an understanding of the structure of Moroccan Arabic. From there, the course progresses into ninety-seven short, conversational dialogs that place the student in a variety of social situations. First introduced to Arabic language students in the 1960s, A Basic Course in Moroccan Arabic still has no equal for clarity and ease of use. An audio CD of MP3 files that further aid and enhance the lessons is now bound into this volume.

In not using Arabic script, transcribed for the English-speaking student for easier comprehension, A Short Reference Grammar of Moroccan Arabic teaches the spoken language of the urban people of the northwestern part of Morocco, especially Fez, Rabat, and Casablanca. The accompanying audio files, keyed to the text, demonstrate the pronunciation of the Arabic transcribed in the book. These mp3 files are available here:
