Publisher's Summary

Have you always wanted to learn how to speak the Lebanese Arabic dialect but simply didn't have the time? 

Well if so, then, look no further. This book contains 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 three 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 Lebanon, 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 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! Lebanese Arabic encompasses three slightly different dialects, the dialects of the north, south, and center of the country (Beirut). The one in this book is the Beirut dialect. In the Lebanese dialect, verb conjugation is irregular, and this book will not teach you those skills since this is not a grammar book. In most languages, including Classical Arabic, a conjugated verb is always followed by an infinitive verb, but this is not the case in the Lebanese colloquial dialect since every verb in the sentence must be conjugated. Keep in mind that Lebanese Arabic is not an official language, but rather is a colloquial dialect. The purpose of my method is solely to give you the tools to create your own sentences in order to become conversational, while in regards to grammar, pronunciation, etc., you are on your own! 

This method is designed for fluency in a foreign language, while communicating in the first person present tense. Nitzany believes that what's most important is actually being able to understand and be understood by another human being right away. More formalized training in grammar rules, etc., can come later. 

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

Great intro to Arabic

I've used many books and videos to try to learn basic Arabic. This book is exactly what I've been looking for. The only thing that could be better is to decrease the four chapter intro discussing how the method works and just do one or two chapters and go right into the vocab. Love the book and would def. recommend it!

A fun listen.

Another great book and I'm going to try to hope that part 2 for the Lebanese dialect will be created. I think I could go on listening to this forever.

Fine!

I recently was hired as a waiter in a Lebanese restaurant here in London. I used this while speaking to my coworkers and they were shocked and said I was speaking accurate Lebanese dialect.

Practice makes perfect

My husband is Lebanese I purchased this without telling him so I can surprise him with some Lebanese words.
He thinks I am awesome.

I tried this as well as other books to learn Lebanese in my opinion it’s better than the rest.
This also comes with the free digital version and you can follow along.

The book is good

The lady reading talks painfully slow when speaking English about the rubbish stuff. But when it comes to putting sentences together, she reads so fast that you can't hear where a word begins or ends. The book is a great tool, but the person reading it in the audio needs to be changed.
