5.0 out of 5 stars so much useful information in such a small book
This is the BEST Egyptian Arabic phrasebook you can buy. This little book is crammed full of useful words, phrases, grammar and a very useful two-way dictionary. I have The Rough Guide's Egyptian Arabic Phrasebook as well and THIS ONE is far better by miles. This book is ideal for beginners as well as intermediate learners of Egyptian Arabic. This book is a must and at...

3.0 out of 5 stars Egyptian Arabic
A good basic phrasebook

It would be useful if it came with a CD (as does the Berltiz Arabic phrasebook) as you do really need to hear the pronunciation of the sounds rather than only see them on the page.

5.0 out of 5 stars best of its kind, 28 Sep 2006
This is an excellent little book. Don't be misled by its diminuitive size it is a 'Tardis' of information, words and phrases. Instantly usable by beginners and the more experienced foreigner to Arabic alike. Very good value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy little book to take away!, 25 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonely Planet Egyptian Arabic Phrasebook (Lonely Planet Phrasebook) (Paperback)
This is a really useful little book. It's a very handy size, fits in a small bag on a night out. It has some interesting (if a little odd) topics, and has a useful section on pronunciation at the front. I would say that there isn't much in the way of informal 'local' language. I just moved to Cairo and finding that many of the expressions in the book are quite formal for normal conversations. Definitely a good book to bring on holiday, or as a starter for if you move to Egypt.

I took this on my holiday to Egypt and it was very handy especially when using the taxis. A lot cheaper then I've seen in big book shops. It was just really great! Thank You.

4.0 out of 5 stars author knows her stuff..., 2 July 2012

This review is from: Lonely Planet Egyptian Arabic Phrasebook (Lonely Planet Phrasebook) (Paperback)
My father is Egyptian and really enjoyed flicking through this book...

This is Egyptian Arabic, will get you around anywhere in the Mid-East (mostly) but people will definitely know you are speaking Egyptian dialect.

For Egypt it is perfect...try to use this along with real convo though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Useful! Your great friend in Egypt, 26 Oct 2010
This review is from: Lonely Planet Egyptian Arabic Phrasebook (Lonely Planet Phrasebook) (Paperback)
People always like listening to some sentences talked in their language by tourist.
It shows really interest in the culture of the country being visited.

If you want to impress egyptians, you just need to ask them your questions in egyptian :)

This book is really useful! You have a lot of sentences separated in some topics accompanied by their phonetical sound and the arabic written form. All of them are written in colloquial egyptian, used in the street and near to all people.

In the same little book, you have a two-way dictionary and explanations of the use of egyptian.

Really RECOMMENDABLE in your trip to Egypt!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearest guide for spoken Arabic, 14 July 2009
By 
This review is from: Lonely Planet Egyptian Arabic Phrasebook (Lonely Planet Phrasebook) (Paperback)
I was very happy with this guide as it covered all the necessary whilst also giving handy hints and tips on things like customs and manners, which are different to ours. Small enough to carry about but it covers everything you would need. I like the fact if you where totally stuck you can just show them what you mean as they have it written in Arabic to.
