Reviews - What do customers think about Very Simple Arabic: Incorporating Simple Etiquette in Arabia?

Handy & User Friendly  Feb 23, 2008
I'm in Iraq on deployment. This little book is great! Easy to carry around. It gives me pertinent phrases in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA); even though the Iraqi dialect varies.
Good for Customs, Not Good for Language  Feb 6, 2000
I find it interesting that the glowing reviews on the back cover of the book are all in reference to the "Simple Etiquette in Arabia" portion (37 pages), and not to the language component (69 pages). Indeed, a traveler who relies on the stylized Roman script to facilitate reasonable pronunciation will be taking a chance.

As an experiment, I enlisted the help of three colleagues to read the Arabic as presented in this book (with native Arabic speakers in the room). One produced fairly good pronunciation, the second was recognizable, and the third gave up because he was incomprehensible.

The book is attractive, pleasantly thin, and enjoyable to look at. And the "etiquette" section is good. But to be truly valuable as a language tool, it should come with recorded material. If you plan to use it, try to find an Arabic speaker to help you with pronunciation -- before you try it on the street.
