“Right, so. I’m a complete beginner when it comes to Arabic. So after a little bit of Googling, it seemed that “Mastering Arabic” was the way to go. So on Day 1, I took it to work with me, and my friend (who is an Arabic speaker) says “nobody speaks like that, that book is pretty much useless unless you want to sound like Shakespeare.”Back to Square One. So I trawl through the internet, and come across ‘Nassra Arabic Method’. Short, easy videos explaining 1 phrase per video. He talks about “not learning Fus-ha (Modern Standard Arabic to us normal folk) but learning what people ACTUALLY speak” Matt
The author introduces phrases and key pieces of vocabulary to get you to start speaking immediately, and slowly introduces grammatical concepts overtime only when they are needed. It contains reference dialogues at the end of the book which are used in everyday situations such as buying items in a shop or having a telephone conversation and phrases which are difficult to come by in other texts but exceptionally important. Fully recommended!
