Ich liebe dieses Buch!! Damit macht arabisch lernen spaß und es geht echt schnell (wenn man jetzt wirklich immer übt und mit freunden ein bisschen versucht zu reden). Es ist einfach gemacht, damit man auch wirklich alles versteht.

Die struktur find ich allerdings ein bisschen mangelhaft...es konzentriert sich eher darauf, wichtige sätze sprechen zu können und dialoge zu verstehen als in vokabulär, grammatik, und zahlen einzugehen. Kommt aber vielleicht noch (ich bin noch am Anfang).

Trotzdem 5 sterne, denn gute sprachbücher sind schwierig zu finden. Gute ägyptische sprachbücher umso schwieriger!!!

One of the best 1. Dezember 2010
Von Vilcjo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
I have worked through the entire course and have found "Colloquial Arabic of Egypt" to be one of the best books on the spoken language of Egypt that's available for a self-learner.

Spoken Egyptian Arabic is just that ---- it's the language that people speak and it's rare that any books or newspapers are printed using the spoken language. To read books and newspapers a knowledge of Modern Standard Arabic is required, and that has different vocabulary and grammar than the spoken language. This book, because it concentrates on the colloquial language, emphasizes vocabulary needed for speech and doesn't aim to provide a reading vocabulary. The grammar of the spoken language is very much streamlined compared to that of the full formal written language, and this book gives an excellent presentation of the grammar needed for speaking. So the goal of the book is perhaps more restricted than that of other "Colloquial" books that provide the basis for both a speaking and reading knowledge of the language. It's quite well known that to gain a full command of Arabic you need both knowledge of a colloquial dialect and (separately) a knowledge of Modern Standard Arabic.

Another plus of this book is that it's one of the few books on the spoken language of Egypt that gives an introduction to the Arabic script, so you can get a start on learning to read. The authors give Arabic script versions of the dialogues. I came to this book already knowing the Arabic script and wanted a book that permitted me to continue working with the script. I found that this book really supplied what I needed in this regard.

I found some supplementary materials helpful to use along with this book. Wightwick and Gaafar have also authored the Michel Thomas course, "Speak Arabic for Beginners." The Arabic in this course is spoken Egyptian and the general presentation of grammar parallels that in "Colloquial Arabic of Egypt." I found it easy and rewarding to work through both courses in parallel.

Other materials I found of help are good phrase books. The dictionaries that I've come across deal with Modern Standard Arabic and not with spoken Eqyptian. Good phrase books have filled in the gap. Two that I've used to supplement "Colloquial Arabic" are Lonely Planet's "Egyptian Arabic Phrasebook" and Barron's "Arabic at a Glance, third edition." While "Colloquial Arabic" gives a good general working vocabulary, the phrasebooks give the more specialized vocabulary that a tourist needs.

Two things have occurred which indicate to me how instructive this book is. First, when I was half-way through with the book, I watched an Egyptian movie and was pleasantly surprised that I could understand the general sense of everything that was said. I felt pretty good about this, so the book was able to provide me with enough background to give me a strong sense of accomplishment. The other thing is that now that I've worked through the book in about four months, my friends who speak Arabic are amazed that an American has learned so much of the language so quickly by learning on his own. Again that speaks highly of the methodology of the book.

One of the worst colloquial courses 30. November 2008
Von Gwilym - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While the Colloquial course enjoy a good reputation for its courses in European languages, its three Arabic courses have been a disgrace for some twenty years already - something even those responsible at Routledge (the publisher) have admitted in private.

The main problem with this course is exactly the same as in the older Colloquial Arabic courses, far too little content. Compared to most other courses, this book is very thin despite Arabic being notoriously difficult. This leads to two consequences:

a. the grammar descriptions are too short and more bewildering than helpful. Colloquial courses for almost all European languages include a complete overview of the main grammatical points (of course not always in great detail, but still). For a beginner coming to Arabic, this course is likely to scare him/her off, as it doesn't help one bit in understanding grammar but still includes just enough to make it seem hard.

b. the vocabulary is a joke. For most other Colloquial courses, the vocabulary you learn in the course is somewhere around 1400-1600 words. Many courses include over 2000 words (Colloquial Italian, Icelandic, Albanian, Czech, Russian, Spanish of Latin America and probably others as well). This course, in sharp contrast, doesn't even include 600 words, and that's far too little for a course calling itself a "complete" language course.

So only one third of the vocabulary found in other Colloquial courses and hardly any help at all with the grammar. Despite having three Arabic courses on the market, Routledge still hasn't tried to produce a course that would fulfill the promises given by its other courses and by the "complete course"-label.

Great learning tool! 26. August 2008
Von Barbara K. Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have tried different books on Egyptian colloquial Arabic and found this one the most useful. I went through the entire book before taking an Egyptian colloquial language class in Cairo and it helped me a lot. It uses basic and everyday words and phrases found in the Egyptian colloquial language. It is a great learning tool for beginners and I hope they make a more advanced book. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn the basics of Egyptian colloquial language.

One of the best choices 11. Februar 2013
Von Adéla Málková - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
Learning Arabic is difficult in Europe when you are not having it as a subject in College. Being a self-learning student makes it very difficult. There is not one book available in Czech so I had to go for some in English. I needed something with grammar, colloquial, with audio and the ability to let me learn at least basics of such complex and difficult language. I was not absolutely satisfied with the book - some things were explained poorly and sometimes I needed help of my Egyptian friend to understand the basic grammar but overall it's a good book if you want to get to know the language a bit and when you don't need the official Arabic but the colloquial that allows you to communicate in Egypt.

Great Learning Tool 2. Januar 2009
Von Django Rienhardt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the best book I've found for Egyptian Colloquial. Perhaps there isn't enough grammar as another reviewer mentioned, but the vocabulary is thorough and is very close to capturing the way Arabic is spoken in Cairo. Too bad there isn't Volume II.
