Learn another language the way you learnt your own. You learnt your own language naturally and enjoyably: now you can learn Arabic in the same way. There’s no books and no writing, and you will achieve confidence – in hours. With the “Michel Thomas Method” you learn the language in small steps, building it up yourself to produce ever more complicated sentences. The Method works as it breaks down the language into its component parts, enabling you to reconstruct the language yourself – to form your own sentences, to say what you want, when you want. On the recording you will hear two students being taught in real time and in a classroom situation, so you are learning with others. You enjoy their success and learn from their mistakes. You, as learner, become the third student and participate actively in the class. In a very short time you will be able to manipulate Arabic structures to express what you want to say.It uses the unique method perfected over fifty years by the celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. The Method works with your brain, helping you to build up your Arabic in manageable, enjoyable steps by thinking out the answers for yourself. You learn through listening and speaking – the way you learnt your own language. You pick up the language naturally and unforgettably. On these recordings experienced teacher Jane Wightwick is assisted by native Egyptian Arabic speaker Mahmoud Gaafar. These all-audio courses are accompanied by an index, where the Arabic words are printed in Roman script and translated, for easy reference. This “8-hour Arabic Foundation Course” is one of the “Michel Thomas Method Mandarin” courses published by Hodder Arnold, the others being the “5-hour Advanced Course”, the “2-hour Foundation Review”, the “1-hour Advanced Review” and the “2-hour Introductory Course”, which comprises the first 2 hours of the “Foundation Course”.
