Publisher's Summary

Have you always wanted to learn how to speak the Egyptian Arabic Dialect, but simply didn't have the time? 

Well if so, then, look no further. You can hold in your hands one of the most advanced and revolutionary methods that was ever designed for quickly becoming conversational in a language. In creating this time-saving program, master linguist Yatir Nitzany spent years examining the 27 most common languages in the world and distilling from them the 350 words that are most likely to be used in real conversations. These 350 words were chosen in such a way that they were structurally interrelated and, when combined, form sentences. Through various other discoveries about how real conversations work - discoveries that are detailed further in this book - Nitzany created the necessary tools for linking these words together in a specific way so that you may become rapidly and almost effortlessly conversant - now. 

If your desire is to learn complicated grammatical rules or to speak perfectly proper and precise Arabic, this book is not for you. However, if you need to actually hold a conversation while on a trip to Egypt, to impress that certain someone, or to be able to speak with your grandfather or grandmother as soon as possible, then the Nitzany Method is what you have been looking for. This book is recommended for those who already have some prior knowledge of the pronunciation of Arabic accents (such as the Arabic accents: ayin, ghayn, ha, and khaf). For those of you who do not, this book does indeed provide some great, in-depth techniques on the pronunciation and recognition of these accents that you will encounter throughout the program. These techniques have proven extremely beneficial for beginner students who were previously unfamiliar with these accent pronunciations. But keep in mind, this isn't a pronunciation book. 

This method is designed for fluency in a foreign language. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Better than the rest

I had previously purchased Pimsleur Egyptian Arabic course, and Innovative Language Learning Egyptian Arabic course as well, and both of which weren’t very good nor helpful and I ended up requesting a refund and then I purchased this instead. Both of those programs pale in comparison to this book. This is a really good and thorough course, which is absolutely great. From absolutely no knowledge of this dialect I am now able to speak and pronounce basic conversations in Egyptian thanks to this.

Arabic Egyptian dialect

I purchased this for my best friend and she loves it. She may be visiting Egypt soon so she will be bringing this along. I am originally from Egypt and I lived there most of my life and so Arabic is my native language and I listened to all the tracks and it sounds great and narrator speaks proper Egyptian dialect.

This is the second the Arabic language conversational book that I am purchasing from Yatir Nitzany and I absolutely love both of them. I recommend this book to anyone who is just starting out learning the Arabic language.

THIS BOOK HAS EVERYTHING

I purchased this book before my trip to Egypt. I revised the vocabulary and learned how to make sentences and when I went there I used all what I learned and it was fantastic! I recommend buying this book if you're going to travel to Egypt because it will help so much.

Outstanding

What a great book and insight into the Egyptian language. Hard work and getting these kind of a book is not very easy for someone to create. One of the best language system i have encountered.
