    "Effective way to learn Arabic"
    Any additional comments?

    This approach for learning a language is very effective. There is lots of repetition, help with pronunciation, and practical, daily uses of the language. I take a weekly in-person Arabic class, which has me focused on grammar rules and which makes me unable to produce the language due to the complexity of the grammar rules, This audio book has enabled me to actually produce the spoken language. If you are a stickler for grammar details, using just this audio book might stress you out since you might not understand some of the finer details. But if you are willing to learn the grammar a bit organically (or if you pair the book with a class as I do), you'll do great. I highly recommend it.

    "Best way to learn a new language"

    Pimsleur has been such a great language tool that both me and my husband bought the full 30 lesson set in our chosen language. My husband finished the first 25 lessons in a month and can now speak Greek in complete sentences. I have been less consistent, but in a month I have still learned basic phrases needed for travel in Arabic. If you are not ready to commit fully to a language program this five lesson set is a great way to test out if pimsleur will work for you. The key is doing a lesson every day, sometimes I need to repeat lessons two or three times before moving forward.

    "Great introduction to MSA, but hope they had more"

    Narrarator was clear and subject matter covered was clear and basic, great for an introduction to Modern Standard Arabic (MSA).
    One down side is that they don't repeat the phrases more than 1.5 times in MSA. But the integration of concepts is natural and helps me recall words from earlier units!
