A small book which doesn't seem to be addressed to English speakers in the Uk as it was ported from a different context. It requires lots of repetition and reading aloud but it doesn't introduce letters in Arabic and ways of writing them. So, although it's not an intimidating, huge grammer book, you will probably need a teacher to check your pronunciation and to supplement your learning of Arabic.

Very nice book but I Found it hard to learn it without an arabic teacher who is expert in arabic because it has very difficult grammar that needs to be explained deeply by an experienced arabic teacher.

THE book to start learning Arabic. If you use all three books of this series, you would have a level that exceeds intermediate. If you are a total beginner, use the Gateway to Arabic handwriting book, then start with this one. You get a very good grounding in the simplest of Arabic grammar, without all the fluff topics like buying plane tickets or what's for dinner tonight. This means that you have an excellent base from which to start reading Arabic and actually understanding it, rather than having lots of superfluous vocabulary. It is advisable to have a teacher, and that does not have to be an Arab! I learnt from native English speakers who had studied this book as beginners themselves."Madinah Book 1", as it is so widely informally known, gives you the roots of your Arabic tree - others only give you the branches.

If you search on Youtube for LQtoronto you can find the whole series of accompanying DVDs available to use in conjunction with these books. The teacher is excellent and the books are fantastic. Alhamdulillah.

EDIT: Having now completed book 1, I'm going to retract my statements and state the following: Book 1 is excellent, I'm now looking forward to start book 2.

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.

Ordered the level 1 book, got level 2 book. Since level 2 is a lot more advanced then I have nothing to do with it.
