You learned English by listening. With Pimsleur, you listen to learn Arabic. This Language Program was developed by renowned memory expert, Dr. Paul Pimsleur. His research led him to the realization that the most important use of memory is in language learning. Based on this, Dr. Pimsleur designed a learning program that works for any language. The Pimsleur Language Program is an integrated system which immerses you in the language, encouraging you to hear, understand and use the language all at the same time.
At the completion of these easy-to-use lessons, you will be able to comfortably understand Arabic and speak with native speakers.
“I've since been using the Egyptian Arabic I course as I travel to Egypt every year. For the first time, during last year's trip, having done 10 or so Pimsleur lessons, I felt comfortable speaking Arabic beyond simple 'please' and 'thank you'.”
