Very well done with the Phonetic Spelling!
It is small, it fits in your pocket or bag.
It is basic; it is practical.
The way the material is presented allows for improvisation and insertion of other vocabulary.
It has both English, Arabic, and transliterates the Arabic into English (in two different forms, one phonetic and one academic).
The cultural bits are informative and short.
This will help those who have gone the extra mile to learn to read Arabic script, and the bulk of readers who don't have the time for that.
As an Arabic tutor, I find this to be an extremely simple, yet useful text. As always, it is best used in conjunction with an Arabic speaker who can help you with pronunciation.
