She opens her book with a very informative Transliteration guide - the Arabic letters and their transliteration according to the Lebanese dialect. She then structure her book into the following chapters: Basic Language - Numbers, Days, Colors, Pronouns, Prepositions; Traveling - Airport, Directions, Money, Accommodation, Shopping; Everyday Words and Sentences - introductions, general greetings; Family, friends and relationships - Family, Friends, Love, Emotions; Conjugation - To Have, To Go, To Eat, To Draw, To Want; Miscellaneous - Random Words and Sentences; and Word Puzzles - Printable Puzzles.
When coupled with videos made accessible through YouTube connection within the book, this is a relatively simple way to approach Lebanese Arabic, and with the world growing smaller every day, it is wise for each of use to master a bit of Arabic. This is a very fine introduction to speaking Arabic through the every wise use of Practical sentences, videos, puzzles and quizzes. Grady Harp, July 14
I can't wait to see more work from this author! Definitely recommend to all those interested in learning Arabic in a fun and engaging way!
I have dear friends of the family who are of Lebanese (and Syrian) heritage--most of them are the 2nd generation in America, and they remember that their grandparents spoke Lebanese Arabic (usually just called Lebanese, because we're talking family heritage here, not linguistics) around the home. They grew up hearing, and picking up bits and pieces.
But over the years, they've used it less and less, and that has left them missing something. So, when I asked them to help try out a few things from this book, they agreed. It's been fun.
Now, as a basic American, I can't get all the pronunciation right. Far from it. But a few visits with friends and their extended family have a neat new depth thanks to a little learning.
I can't speak to using this Phrasebook cold, trying to learn from nothing, but if you have either a little background of your own or a friend with some, I've found it very, very handy. Being in Kindle format has it on my phone, my tablet, everywhere. Very helpful.
Just what you need to find your way around in Lebanon.
Can't wait to see what's more to come in volume 2
This phrase book is a good addendum to a 1st and 2nd year study of grammar. Once the basics are down a phrase book like this as well as having someone to converse frequently will make all the difference from a language that's just beautiful to hear but beautiful when conversed.
But somehow this book makes learning the language quite fun, particularly thanks to the access to the video lessons.
A direct link to pronunciation for each sentence might be of greater help. A quite practical book anyhow.
