Customer Reviews Great for Beginners I think this is the best book on the market for beginners. The DVDs are very helpful and an innovative approach to teaching the writing system. The only thing I didn’t like was at the end of units when there is vocabulary I often found that the pictures were not at all clear as to the meaning of the word. In other words what you thought the picture was representing was not actual what the word meant. Good book, bad DVDs This was the textbook for a university Arabic class I took. The book is good, but the included DVDs are awful and annoying. I recommend this book, but suggest purchasing the Instant Immersion Arabic 2-cd set to learn some vocabulary and phrases (for about $9.99). Great for self-study I met with a partner daily for an hour each day for 6-8 weeks, and we learned a great deal from this book. It is definitely good enough for self-study. The one problem is that for the vocabulary and cultural activities, it assumes you have a teacher to fill in the details, so we didn’t get much out of those. We did learn to read, write, and pronounce all the sounds, and it’s terrifically neat that I can now read basic Arabic signs which are in pictures in the newspaper.
