Talk Arabic is the ideal course for absolute beginners. Designed for adults learning at home or in a class, it covers all the basic language you'll need in everyday situations, allowing you to make the most of your visit from the moment you arrive! Its focus is on Levantine Arabic, which is spoken in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Palestine and widely understood elsewhere. Talk Arabic's rewarding step-by-step approach makes progress rapid and is effective in teaching even the least confident of language learners. Illustrated in full colour and featuring a wealth of enjoyable activities, it makes learning Arabic fun. It also makes the language more accessible by presenting it using the Roman alphabet, but you will learn the basics of Arabic script too. The native speakers on the audio will give you a real flavour of the Arabic you're likely to hear - and you're encouraged to join in and put your new-found language skills to the test! This pack contains a 144-page book with two 60-minute audio CDs. The book is also available separately (9781406652901).
