Great book. I consistently learn about 30 new words a day - and they stick! If someone had told me about a method to learn so much with such little effort, I would have said it isn't true. The price is small for what you get; a new book, and a new way of thinking - a deliberate strategy to remember. On top of that, Anthony Metivier is very accessible. He replied my email with questions within a day.

I am sure that some people may find this method helpful for learning Arabic script and words. For my part the method, and its constituent imaging techniques - with origins that reach back to Greek orators who used such aids - does not lend itself to Arabic. In fact arguably it interposes an additional cognitive demand.

HASH(0x8e906534) out of 5 stars Not much use 28 Feb. 2015
By YAG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this book with a specific purpose, and it failed to deliver. I had perused a sample before buying, and had reservations but still proceeded with the purchase as the price is quite cheap. Not a good use of time and money as far as I am concerned, mainly for 3 reasons.
First, contrary to what the title suggests, the method proposed here is directly based on the age-old "loci" system ("memory palace"), without any significant adaptation tailored to Arabic.
Second, the book contains no decent analysis - like the number of words you should target, or the consequence of the 3-letter root system and derivation. I discovered somewhere in the middle of the book that the author knows probably about as many words as me. He has 28 "memory palaces", and states his largest have more than 100 words. So I'd bet his vocabulary is in the 1500-2000 range, like mine. I am struggling to double it, as proficiency typically means more than 3000 words, in most languages.
Third and most puzzling to me, the method proposes to learn words in alphabetic order of the target language. After studying half a dozen languages including English as a foreign language, I am yet to see any student achieve even a basic conversation level that way. Many sources document the value of learning "production" (from your native language to your target language), rather than "recognition" - especially with the alphabetic order.
The loci system and other technics such as mental images are fantastic. However you can find other references explaining them better and in a nicer prose. Hence the rating of 1 star.

HASH(0x8e906780) out of 5 stars Game changer for me! 27 July 2014
By Bernie M Capal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book just when I needed it. My Arabic studies had stalled and my motivation was clearly suffering. I've been studying Arabic (MSA) for the last 7 months using all different types of material, everything from Michel Thomas total and advanced to a large variety of books and some of the better known websites including Arabic studio which I love, its a great grammar resource. But the vocab has been my set back. I've tried flash cards, audio material, website vocab and they stick for a bit then poof...lots of work for what felt like zero payoff. The red flag came for me when I fell in love with the Madina book and the lectures on you tube which originates with Toronto LQ, its a resource for Quran and classic Arabic study but it's amazing for anyone chasing this wonderful language. I struggled with the necessary vocab and remembering the grammar terminology. So I typed in Arabic grammar on the Amazon search line and up popped " How to learn and Memorize Arabic Vocabulary". One review was great and one was less than stellar so I went to the Authors website, Magnetic memory and looked it over and read the reviews there. That won me over, so much so that I actually joined the magnetic memory language course before coming back to the Amazon website and buying the book. The negative review made some sense to me once I read the book. You can't just read it like a novel or newspaper and expect to master the skill, there are a few steps to undertake before the payoff but there so easy. You set up your memory palace and stations with work sheets the author proves via a down load which the negative review refers to as ads. The ads as there called in the review happen to be additional downloads which supply you with so much additional info you won't believe it. Its as if the author has a vested personal interest in you succeeding. There are suggested sites/ads for the different possibilities that might arise in you creating your memory palace, (example) maybe your imagination is lacking or you don't think in color, there are solutions offered to overcome this. I also suggest joining his mailing list, I get something everyday in the form of a useful tip by either the author or someone whose posted a question. He answers it and then posts the information to the rest of us. And there's free pod casts and on and on. I'm just getting started with the magnetic memory method. I read the book Wednesday of this week and last night I spent 2 and a 1/2 hours on my first attempt at the memory palace method and was able to retain 50 words in that time. blew my mind. I used a vocab book that I thought became a waste of money since I hadn't retained anything the old fashion way but now alot of my previous purchases can be useful in this new method. I say check out the site, you'll not regret it and the book will be the best 15 bucks you've ever spent.

Good luck

HASH(0x8e906744) out of 5 stars A good read for anyone interested learning, langauge learning, and arabic learning. 14 May 2014
By Jens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Anthony Metriever gives us a clear plan, that is easy to understand and easy to follow for how to take us from knowing no Arabic and nothing about learning techniques or mnemonics to learn enough vocabulary to speak fluently.

The plan includes mind hacks like memory palace (Which is described in a way that someone who has never heard of it before could understand it) which is famous from for example Sherlock Holmes and The Mentalist to learn vocabulary without boring and ineffective rote learning, and some simple advice for relaxing.

It was an engaging read, and I'd definately recommend it to any friend who's interested in langauge learning, or specifically, Arabic learning.

HASH(0x8e906a38) out of 5 stars or even how to pronounce letters ('it sounds to me like.. 21 Sept. 2015
By Camel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I regret spending actual money on this 'book'. Writer obviously have no idea about arabic, he has no idea how to use it, or even how to pronounce letters ('it sounds to me like...'). He used half of the space to promote himself. I feel sad when I think that he makes money on selling unscientific persona-marketing without even knowing what is the topic of his own book. It just hurts real people of language studies. And he has a temper to push everywhere fake-looking positive opinions.

I rate it 'S' for SCUM.

HASH(0x8e906a98) out of 5 stars Transform Information to Knowledge 24 July 2014
By Language Learner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm using this book in conjunction with my Arabic class. While some may think it's a short cut, it's not. It's designed to aid you in the learning process by taking the information from the working memory and transforming it to knowledge, which should be the goal of anyone learning a different language. Thank you Dr. Metivier!
