Over the years, I’ve received many requests for audio that includes both the original Arabic and the English translations from Lingualism books so that the materials can be studied without having to be looking at the page. I’ve always loved the idea, and now I’ve finally gotten around to creating a series of Premium Audio products that do just that.

With Premium Audio, you can learn on the go, when you can’t be sitting down with visual materials in front of you. This way, you can make use of times throughout your day to learn more–while you’re driving, exercising, walking, etc.

Take a look at the product page for a Premium Audio course to see its features and how it is designed to allow you to learn aurally and gives you time to repeat what you hear.

Today, I’m launching the first two Premium Audio titles: Levantine Colloquial Arabic Vocabulary and Egyptian Colloquial Arabic Vocabulary, which use the materials from the books of the same names. 

Of course, as with any new type of product, I have to test the waters first to make sure it is well-received. Hopefully, there proves to be a demand for this kind of tool, in which case, I hope to create Premium Audio products for other suitable Lingualism books–most likely those with example sentences and short dialogues. I will work with Arabic native speaker team members at Lingualism to create new materials exclusively for Premium Audio.

Which books would you like to see as Premium Audio courses? What other ideas do you have for new Premium Audio course materials? Please let us know in the comments!


    1. We may do an MSA vocabulary book in the future. I’m not sure if we should adapt Egyptian Colloquial Vocabulary to MSA (same vocabulary lists, I mean), or create a new list with more media vocabulary. What do you think?

      1. Thanks for the reply and the (potentially) good news!

        It would be good to have a new list with more media vocabulary.

        However, if that will take more time, then it may be better – especially for us all impatient Lingualists! – if you simply adapt the Egyptian Colloquial Vocabulary to MSA.

        Hope MSA Premium Audio will be available soon!

        Thanks and regards

  1. Can you please do one in Palestinian / Jordanian dialect?
    That would be awesome for me playing in the car and repeating the words.
    I know Levantine is close, but it is still more close Lebanese pronunciation.
    Palestinian / Jordanian would be awesome!
    Thank you

  2. if possible , can you do more on Northern Palestinian Arabic (the one spoken in the Galilee region ) or the Arabic spoken in the West Bank (i.e. Ramallah, Bethlehem, Hebron, Nablus, Tubas,Tulkarem,etc).
    i know that you have already had done a few months ago this year in 2021 one called Palestinian Arabic Verbs Conjugation Tables and Grammer with someone from Gaza and it’s in the spoken Arabic of Gaza.
    would love to see more God willing

    1. Hi Mike! Thank you for the suggestion. I have actually had a similar idea for some time now, inspired by a Korean podcast series I used to listen to years ago with two native speakers that discuss a topic for ten minutes. That is something I’d like to pursue because we don’t have a lot of dialogues in Lingualism materials. Let’s see what the coming year brings! 🙂
