    Once again, this is a cool product. A great vocabulary collection is provided for each topic, and it is appropriate for all levels. I just wish or suggest that nouns be given with plurals in addition to verbs having past, present, and infinitive tenses, or an indication of verb forms or synonyms and antonyms would make this course superb. Other than that, it is a great list, and it is one of a kind, which I was looking for a while. The topical vocabulary with example sentences given in context with their appropriate usage is excellent.

    I love it!

    This is exactly what I was looking for! I’ve been studying the first chapter and listening to the audio this afternoon and I can already tell that I’ve been learning so much.

    Overall, this book is good and works a lot on repetition which helps greatly acquire the new vocabulary, that is very aptly introduced through sample sentences illustrating every new vocab. One might regret the fact sentences are not taken from real life media and sound a bit artificial, repetitive and not so interesting. TmHowever, the only real downside is the poor sound quality of the audio recordings. I could probably do a better job with my Phone. How come the audio
    is barely audible at times? Hard to understand! This being said, the overall quality of this material is much above average, I just hope my advice will be taken into account for future materials. All the best.

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the book overall, Francois. Yes, the sentences were designed to enforce repetition of vocabulary used in the book, rather than sentences taken from actual newspapers, which would be much more difficult for the target level of the book and difficult to understand out of context.

      As for the audio, the quality should be perfectly consistent and clear. I suspect if the audio was ‘barely audio at times’, it might be an issue with your device/player/volume. If you can email us indicating the track numbers and time stamps of where these issues lie, I will look into it. Thank you! –Matthew

    Thanks Matthew for your reply, and for all your efforts to provide such valuable materials for avid learners like me. By telling I’d rather have “real life” materials, I actually meant having texts anchored in the context of the Arabic speaking world, its daily life, social, political and cultural issues, but I understand that’s another issue altogether. As for the audio, I really find the quality average. The speakers sound professional and read well. I’m just bothered by the hissing sounds prevailing throughout the recordings, as if the speakers were too close to the microphone while recording. Likewise, some sounds aren’t that clear. I guess it is a general issue with mp3 and compressed formats in general? Anyway, apart from this, I highly recommend this material and actually love the format (vocabulary lists illustrated by sentences, as in Al-Kitaab, then texts with these vocabs). I think it is the best Media Arabic text available on the market (even better than Lahlali’s) and am looking forward for the second instalment. Francois

    Hello, I am Anil.
    I bought all 4 books of the Media Arabic Vocabulary set. I haven’t fully progressed yet. But I can say that it has a full content and can increase our vocabulary. One of the biggest reasons why I prefer these books is that they have audio recordings. Because listening is of course very important in learning a language. Good luck everyone.
