Amazon.com Product Description:
Now you can learn a new language with the award-winning method used by the U.S. State Department to train diplomats. Proven effective by NASA astronauts, Peace Corps volunteers, and millions of students worldwide, the Rosetta Stone Language Library teaches new languages faster and easier than ever before.

We all learn our childhood language by associating new words and phrases with the world around us. The Rosetta Stone method replicates this process by presenting vivid, real-life images to convey the meaning of each new phrase. Instead of translating, memorizing, and studying rules of grammar, you actually learn to think in the new language. Vocabulary and grammar are integrated systematically, leading to everyday proficiency. It's the natural way to learn.

The Rosetta Stone Explorer contains 22 lessons for beginning learners with nearly 900 real-life images and phrases spoken by native speakers. It develops all key language skills--listening comprehension, reading, speaking, and writing--while its systematic structure teaches vocabulary and grammar naturally, without lists and drills. Includes previews, exercises, and tests for every lesson, with automated tutorials throughout the program. (Ages 6 and older)

    Product Description:

    Learning to read a language with a foreign alphabet can be an intimidating challenge. Even before you can start to study the vocabulary and grammar, you must first decipher this strange new script.

    But learning a new alphabet does not have to be so difficult.

    Other language courses start by showing a table of the alphabet and then immediately proceed to dialogues and grammatical descriptions. This is not the ideal way to teach a foreign alphabet, and this approach causes many students to get frustrated and give up before they start.

    Instead of that approach, Learn to Read Arabic in 5 Days teaches each letter of the Arabic alphabet in a systematic way while providing enough practice along the way to ensure the student learns the entire alphabet.

    With this system you will be able to read the Arabic alphabet in only 5 days or less!

    In addition to the alphabet, this course teaches more than 150 real Arabic words that were carefully selected to be of maximum benefit to beginning language students. These are the words that you need right away.

    Order a copy of Learn to Read Arabic in 5 Days today and start to enjoy the Arabic language and culture in a way that only reading the language makes possible.

    Product Description:
    EGYPTIAN ARABIC: Easy Stories With English Translations is a fun yet challenging collection of simple, short stories aimed at both young and adult learners of the spoken language of Egypt. Designed with high-beginners to low-intermediate learners in mind, this book will improve your comprehension and build on your vocabulary as you progress through each carefully crafted mini story. One of the issues that many Arabic students of spoken dialects face is that most written material is in Modern Standard Arabic or Classical Arabic (formal dialect).

    There is very little available for learners who have moved beyond the basics and are looking for literary resources at an appropriate reading level in colloquial, spoken language.

    So we've carefully crafted a series of 12 short/mini stories that progressively increase in length and difficulty which we're sure you'll enjoy and benefit from.

    What you'll find in 'Egyptian Arabic - Easy Stories With English Translations':
    • 12 mini stories on various focus topics, full of high-frequency vocabulary and expressions pertaining to those topics.
    • Stories gradually rise in length and difficulty.
    • Comprehension exercises at the end of each story (100% in Egyptian Arabic).
    • Key vocabulary lists for each story.
    • Full English translations.
    • Larger font and moderate use of tashkeel (vowel markings) to improve readability for lower-level learners.
    • Dialogues are bolded.
    • Note-taking sections.
    This book assumes that you:
    • Have already moved beyond the absolute basics of Arabic (High-Beginner -> Low-Intermediate).
    • Already have foundational vocabulary of the most common words.
    • Can already read Arabic script (there is no transliteration in the book).
    Who this book is not for:
    • Absolute beginners with no previous Arabic knowledge.
    • Advanced learners who may find it too easy.
    Importantly, these stories have been written purposefully in the everyday, spoken vernacular of Egypt. No standard or formal dialect.

    As a learner of Arabic, we're confident that you'll enjoy and benefit from our easy story collection.

    The Easiest and Fastest Way to Learn Egyptian Arabic
    Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what’s going on in the world around you, learning Egyptian Arabic will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life.

    The best part is that it doesn’t have to be difficult or take years to master. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and we get you speaking right from the first day. Pimsleur courses use a scientifically-proven method that puts you in control of your learning. If you’ve tried other language learning methods but found they simply didn’t stick, then you owe it to yourself to give Pimsleur a try.

    Why Pimsleur?
    - Quick + Easy – Only 30 minutes a day.
    - Portable + Flexible – Core lessons can be done anytime, anywhere, and easily fit into your busy life.
    - Proven Method – Works when other methods fail.
    - Self-Paced – Go fast or go slow – it’s up to you.
    - Based in Science – Developed using proven research on memory and learning.
    - Cost-effective – Less expensive than classes or immersion, and features all native speakers.
    - Genius – Triggers your brain’s natural aptitude to learn.
    - Works for everyone – Recommended for ages 13 and above.

    What’s Included?
    - 30, 30-minute audio lessons
    - 60 minutes of reading instruction to provide you with an introduction to reading Egyptian Arabic designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent
    - In total, 16 hours of audio, all featuring native speakers
    - A Reading Booklet and a User’s Guide

    What You’ll Learn
    In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

    In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

    In the final 10 lessons, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in Egyptian Arabic, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

    Reading Lessons are included at the end of Lesson 30 to provide you with an introduction to reading the Arabic alphabet. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with Egyptian Arabic pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

    The Pimsleur Method
    We make no secret of what makes this powerful method work so well. Paul Pimsleur spent his career researching and perfecting the precise elements anyone can use to learn a language quickly and easily. Here are a few of his secrets:

    The Principle of Anticipation
    In the nanosecond between a cue and your response, your brain has to work to come up with the right word. Having to do this boosts retention, and cements the word in your mind.

    Core Vocabulary
    Words, phrases, and sentences are selected for their usefulness in everyday conversation. We don’t overwhelm you with too much, but steadily increase your ability with every lesson.

    Graduated Interval Recall
    Reminders of new words and structures come up at the exact interval for maximum retention and storage into your long-term memory.

    Organic Learning
    You work on multiple aspects of the language simultaneously. We integrate grammar, vocabulary, rhythm, melody, and intonation into every lesson, which allows you to experience the language as a living, expressive form of human culture.

    Learning in Context
    Research has shown that learning new words in context dramatically accelerates your ability to remember. Every scene in every Pimsleur lesson is set inside a conversation between two people. There are no drills, and no memorization necessary for success.

    Active Participation
    The Pimsleur Method + active learner participation = success. This method works with every language and every learner who follows it. You gain the power to recall and use what you know, and to add new words easily, exactly as you do in English.

    The Egyptian Arabic Language
    Arabic is the world's 6th most common language with 295 million native speakers. It is also the liturgical language of 1.6 billion Muslims as it is the language of the Qur’an the holy book of Islam.
    Egyptian Arabic is mainly spoken in urban Egypt. Egyptian Arabic has also gained a high degree of acceptance throughout the Arabic-speaking world because of its use in films. Pimsleur's Egyptian Arabic teaches the Cairene dialect, the prestige dialect spoken in Cairo, Egypt's capital city.
