A useful drill exercise for intermediate students

The second part reiterates much of the first and adds some higher number verb forms, It is more like a half step up in difficulty, however.

I will add a note about the music at the end but basically my review of part 1 still holds here:
If you've had at least a year of Arabic or two years this is a useful exercise tape. It's also worthwhile to look for a used version with the book. This is Levantine Arabic with mostly (though not always) G enunciation of the Qaaf. Sometimes odd choices for translation are made but even then it is a useful reminder of a different translation. Not useful as a beginning tool - only as an exercise for an intermediate student.

A note regarding the music: It's classical music and is not overpowering. I actually liked it as a background element but it's not to everyone's taste I'm sure. But it does not interfere with your ability to hear the speakers. The main useful function is to pause and change when the role switches with the English presented first and Arabic second and vice-versa.

I think the complaints on this title are mostly due to misplaced expectations. As I mentioned above the tape version came with a booklet with the text of the lessons. It would be nice if purchasers of the audiible version could get access to a PDF of this because it is certainly helpful for learning to read and then listen. For that reason I gave only four stars. I used the "story" grade as my assessment of the usefulness of the music but there is no story in the sense that there is no attempt to organize vocabulary by subject. There is only a basic grammatical organization of noun verb.
