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.
I really enjoy the books, they’re refreshing compared to other books on the market. And very detailed while still being concise. I love them!

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 easier....at last.

I am a student of Levantine Arabic and I have bought your books (many times over). I keep copies of the books in the car, at work and at home (I don’t want to be caught without them).

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.

I am very happy with the Egyptian Arabic spoken texts. Thank you very much for your help.
Greg K.Monterey, USA
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.

The books are exceptionally good. I wish I had had your advice on MSA versus colloquial Arabic when I first started learning Arabic.
