Publisher's Summary

This book doesn't contain any Arabic letters! All Arabic words in this book were written in English-transliteration!

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

Well if so, then, look no further. You have here one of the most advanced and revolutionary methods 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 the Holy Land, 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, which you will encounter throughout the program.

Most excellent Arabic audio book!!!

If you could sum up Conversational Arabic Quick and Easy in three words, what would they be?

Better than all the rest

What was one of the most memorable moments of Conversational Arabic Quick and Easy?

Genius method

Any additional comments?

I am originally Palestinian, I was born and lived there many years of my life. I recently purchased this audio book for my boyfriend here in The States and he learned so much from it and now he can put together words and speak basic fluent conversations. He tried over the years other books and audio to learn the Palestinian dialect and this one surpasses them all by a huge gap!
This one focuses solely on conversation. The narrator speaks clearly and is very easy to understand. I recommended this book to all my American friends and they all love it and many of them, who bought it, have already impressed me with their conversational skills as a result of this well put together audio program.

So helpful!

As a total beginner this audio book is invaluable! And the link to print out the book is so helpful. It helped me learn to hear words when people are speaking. As far as I know it's the only audiobook for the Palestinian dialect. And it's not classical arabic! I highly recommend this book to everyone wanting to learn how to speak casually to people.

Too fast, too choppy, too little

Would you try another book from Yatir Nitzany and/or Sara Elzayat?

Not likely.

Would you ever listen to anything by Yatir Nitzany again?

Not likely

How could the performance have been better?

It was? So choppy? And did not. Flow like English? The Arabic was fine, but it was passed very quickly and was not so useful for learning new words.

What character would you cut from Conversational Arabic Quick and Easy?

Not relevant.

Any additional comments?

This was not a good conversion from written learning, where one could study and imprint upon a word. Instead, it was an information dump and not a well progressed one at that.
