5.0 out of 5 stars Arabic - The Perfect Starting Point, 6 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Arabic Alphabet (Paperback)
Like (I believe) a lot of people, I began learning Arabic by getting hold of a basic phrase book and trying to learn it parrot fashion. This is all well and good if you want to learn a few useful phrases, but if you want to truly learn Arabic as a language, as it says in this book, you've got to learn the alphabet and the basics first. The book isn't an 'Arabic for Dummies', although it is written in a technical and intelligent format, its explanations and logical layout make it very easy to understand, even for relative simpletons such as myself. After just a few weeks I can recognise and pronounce Arabic writing on the television and shop signs. What Awde and Samano have produced is an excellent piece of work and should be a must for scholars, tourists and business folk alike.
