    WOW! As an Advanced-Mid Levantine Arabic speaker, I didn’t expect to learn a lot from this book. I mostly bought this out of love for Lingualism and Levantine Arabic. Already in the first chapter, I’ve encountered phrases that I had not understood well previously.
    As always, the audio is pristinely recorded and meticulously labeled. You don’t get an hour of continuous audio. Each lesson in the book clearly labels where there are accompanying audio track (which is everything in the dialogues). The dialogues, in the first chapter at least, are far from artificial, they reflect everyday life so well.
    The format is pleasing to the eye with appropriately pale highlights to make following along in the audio effortless. I even thought it may be little light on content since all of the information is written in three ways (script, transliteration, gloss), yet I was pleasantly surprised by how much authentic content was packed into one chapter.

    This is an excellent resource that I expect beginners could work through (with a tutor and accompanying grammar aids), intermediate learners could be challenged by, and even advanced learners should be pleasantly surprised at various turns. I can’t wait to continue through this and part 2!

    Haki Kill Yoom 1 & 2 are yet again two great new titles in the awesome Lingualism book series. IMHO there are no better resources to help serious arabists learn and improve. Having spent many years working in KSA, Iraq, Egypt and Lebanon, I just wish such books had been made available earlier. Many sincere thanks to Matthew and his co-authors.

    I’ve been thoroughly enjoying working through Haki Kill Yoom. The topics covered are very relevant to everyday life. The text is informative, and the audio is very clear and is spoken at an authentic speed. The conversations also sound pretty natural. I highly recommend this product to those studying Levantine Arabic.

    As a beginner, this is an awesome resource for real-life scenarios and conversations. This goes way beyond the dry language books with unrealistic situations and archaic terms. When you do not have the opportunity for immersion like moving to a different country, this book is the next best thing! I appreciate the real life, natural dialogues, easy format, and the extra notes about the culture. I can’t recommend this book enough!

    Great for dipping in and out of when you don’t have large amounts of time to set aside, and I learn something valuable with every chapter.

    These two course books are excellent practice for colloquial Arabic. You will already need to have studied an Arabic dialect as the course doesn’t explain colloquial Arabic grammar and verb conjugations. But if you already know the basics of colloquial Arabic grammar, this course gives excellent practice in everyday dialogues. Can’t wait to see similar books for other Arabic dialects such as Iraqi or Saudi Arabic.

    I agree with the comments. However, the weakness of the series (in general) is the English translation: it is not literal enough, so a lot of words are not translated and clarified. The aim of translations-in my opinion – is to help a learner understand the structure of the text by”dissecting” the text – and not necessarily have an polished idiomatic translation. It is the same issue with the dialogues in the Levantine verbs. (NB: I bought the books on Amazon)
