  1. Sarah

    What a fantastic book! Matthew has clearly organised a confusing subject into easy to understand tables that make sense out of what can seem at first an overwhelming amount of information

  2. Jim

    This book is amazing! Before I got mine my head was literally swimming in verbs. I would sit there trying to talk with my Egyptian friends but would stammer endlessly as I tried to think up the correct way to conjugate a verb. Using this book has dramatically improved my speaking ability and comprehension of Egyptian Arabic. Thank you so much!

    As well as presenting useful tips on the basis grammar of ECA verbs system, which differs a little from MSA, this books provides the reader with the tables of every verb pattern and shows exemples of actual used verbs for each conjugation category : imperative, present, past etc. Used with the records, I can only recommend it to anyone interested in mastering egyptian verbs system.

    I have spent days and weeks searching for materials on Egyptian Arabic and have come across numerous books, but the material here on lingualism is just amazing. The author has done a fantastic job in organizing the contents into different books. So far, I have purchased three books: “Egyptian Colloquial Arabic Verbs Conjugation Tables and Grammar” from here on, and “Egyptian Colloquial Arabic Vocabulary” & “The Big Fat Book of Egyptian Arabic Verbs” from Google Play Store.

    If you are new to Arabic, then these books are not for you. In order to take advantage of these books, you are expected to know Modern Standard Arabic, at least 30 to 40 study-hours. If you have done so, I would highly recommend these books.

    Thank you Matthew Aldrich for producing such great and helpful material. I would vote for another book of Egyptian Arabic: Collocation/Idioms/Phrasal Verbs.
