EXCELLENT OVERALL TEACHING TECHNIQUE

EXCELLENT OVERALL TEACHING TECHNIQUE for non-book foreign language teaching. I also use others to learn Arabic - including Pimsleur + Rosetta Stone.

The pronunciation is terrible!

The pronunciation is very poor. I'm an Arabic speaker and I bought this for my husband - but it is so poorly pronounced throughout that it incredibly misleading and unhelpful. The female 'teacher' clearly isn't a native Arabic speaker.

Nothing rapid about this learning technique!

Would you try another book written by earworms Learning or narrated by Marlon Lodge?

Despite the promising title and a very real need to learn Arabic (OH's family are Arabic speakers), I was disappointed with this audio book. I think you'd need to be a natural linguist to pick up the language - and listening to it time after time will be as boring a hell!

What will your next listen be?

Much as I'd hoped this would be the solution to my Arabic dilemma, I wouldn't choose another ear worms audiobook unless I already had a genuine feel for the language

Would you be willing to try another one of Marlon Lodge’s performances?

I'd never say never, but the chances of me trying another audio book in this series are pretty low. Sorry.

What character would you cut from Rapid Arabic (Modern Standard Arabic)?

Don't know really - perhaps the flirty couple, which was a bit of a hackney'd device.
