I have just taken receipt of your new book from Amazon. I am so looking forward to working my way through it like your other Egyptian books. Thank you and keep up the great work!
Giancarlo G.Rome, Italy
Thanks a lot for your wonderful job. You are really doing a lot for foreign students of Arabic who are confronted with a harsh reality... that of having to learn two languages, one written and one spoken.
Adhitiya M.Bekasi, Indonesia
Your books on Egyptian Colloquial Arabic are a real breakthrough! They have helped me learn ECA much faster and more efficiently than other books of the same topic. Thank you so much for helping me and other Arabic language enthusiasts!

Matthew, you have done an excellent job with this whole project at Lingualism.  I couldn't be more pleased.  The books are excellent and reasonably priced.  The free downloadable resources are very useful. And now, the MP3s free as well?!!  Everything you have provided is really helping me to finally be able to progress with my Egyptian Arabic learning.  I have really struggled, but now it is getting last.
Pascal L.Laval, France
Lingualism's books provide just what serious students of Arabic are in need of: a gateway to the Arab world with authentic, exciting and lively material that does help us to make progress! Highly and sincerely recommended!

I'm in an Egyptian Arabic class and everything is spot on. This is super useful to boost vocabulary and it's invaluable having native recordings.
Khalid I.Washington D.C., USA
I have got pretty much everything that Lingualism has published on Egyptian Arabic, plus your Modern Standard Arabic dictionary and verb books. Your stuff is excellent, and you have put all us learners in your debt.
Robert K.Washington, D.C., USA
Congratulations for the fantastic job you are doing with the teaching of "real" Arabic. I studied in Egypt and I recognize a good teaching method... yours is outstanding.
Alfred W.Vancouver, Canada
The books are exceptionally good. I wish I had had your advice on MSA versus colloquial Arabic when I first started learning Arabic.
Jim D.Berkshire, England
I wanted to thank you for making available the items on your BLOG. The texts and audio are a wonderful resource for a learner like myself. As a 67-year-old individual learner, without a tutor, I appreciate...
Colin G.St. Helens, England
I love the materials… I'm a language tutor, including Spanish and Arabic, and have found your books and audio very useful with my intermediate students.
Benedikt R.Munich, Germany
