I have finished the course and found it outstanding, a "must buy". This course is world-renowed, is used in schools, colleges and universities in many parts of the world, and the back cover says it successfully helps acquire an understanding of hundreds of Qur'aanic passages, Hadiiths, poetry, parables, classical and modern Arabic texts etc. I fully agree.

NOTICEABLE FEATURES OF THE COURSE IN MY OPINION:

* Written in an easy, step-by-step format
* Explanations are clear, in polished English and Arabic
* Material is meticulously well-structured and logically organised
* Covers an extensive amount of the Arabic Sciences
* Works on the weighty principle that you learn the fundamentals before learning the details
* You learn what is easy before what is more challenging
* Lessons connect to each other: what is previously learnt, is revised by blending material into new points being taught
* Copious, creative exercises give ample drilling in of material

A SIGNIFICANT ATTRACTION FOR ME:

One significant attraction for me is that the author is not an ordinary teacher but a Scholar of Arabic who is also an expert of foreign languages, and speaks English fluently. He obtained his MPhil and PhD degrees in Arabic Philology from the renowned University of Al-Azhar (Cairo, Egypt) and also majored in English Language and Literature. The author was formerly Professor of Arabic Philology for 30 years at the world-renowned Islaamic University, Madinah and has taught Arabic to non-Arabs for more than 50 years (yes, more than 50 years!)

This profile is enough for those of us who want the best possible teacher to teach us non-Arabs, the Arabic language.

After going through first few lessons online using one of the websites ([...] ), I knew it was becoming essential to actually buy the PDFs as printed books. These are very good books for English speakers who want to learn the language, more importantly the grammar in detail. I liked the way it went through book 1 and looked at many nouns etc but only 4 verbs were used initially. Then in the 2nd book, we have the verbs in detail.

Overall its brilliant but note that I am using the learnarabic.info website which are basically recorded class lectures from Canada where these books are used specifically. I have not gone through the lessons myself but used these online lectures to compliment the books which are ONLY IN ARABIC. The english key attached is good but I found that the teacher going through them made it easier. Those lectures are extremely useful along with these books and the handouts that they have provided on the website compliment these books a LOT.

In my experience, these books combined with the online recorded lectures from that website, you will be amazed at how quickly you will start understanding things.

This book is the best on the market if you want to learn arabic. No complaints. If you are looking to learn arabic, then go for this book or the newer version (which is basically the same except has more pictures and colours).

Would be better if CD's were available to accompany these books. I have to borrow basic spoken cd's . These books require a good teacher for pronunciations, meanings, and grammar.
