Reviews - What do customers think about ARABIC in 10 minutes a day® with CD-ROM (10 Minutes a Day)?

Arabic in 10 minutes a day  Jul 6, 2008
The Kershul method of learning is a great way to learn a new language. I took this method of language learning to help me learn Russian well over twenty years ago and I still remember much of the course curriculum. I would recommend this method of learning as a supplement to actual immersion training for everyone.
Bought This as a Gift  Jan 18, 2008
I bought this as a gift for my husband who wants to learn Arabic. He's been also learning from native speakers. He said the writing/script was off from the pronunciation given in the book. (He knows how to read Arabic already). He showed me too (I can read Arabic as well). He said "How do you pronounce this?" (the Arabic script). I told him and he said "Right. Now look at how they want you to pronounce it." and it was incorrect. It was like that with most of the teaching in the book.

He found that very annoying and has stopped using this book. Right now he's using an online site which he likes much better, until we find him a book that has proper pronunciation. He did use the stickers to place around the household items, though.
arabic in 10 minutes a day  Feb 23, 2006
I started out with one book, then got 3 more for my children. I homeschool, the book is in an easy format that allowed me to plan lessons (i.e vocabulary, practice writing). However, the arabic letters do not always correspond with the english translation(mainly the vowel placement when the words are in english, does not match the arabic script sometimes, but not often enough for me to not use the book totally). If you know the arabic alphabet and vowels you'll catch this right away. Over all the colored pictures and easy format help keep the children interseted, pulse they are learning lots of new words. The "Arabic Alphabet,how to read and write",(Lyle Stuart) and a good arabic dictionary like "Arabic, practical dictionary",(N.Awde& K.Smith) are used alot to get me though the spelling and reading. If you don't know anyone that speak arabic you may want to try "Living Language Arabic" program, it comes with a book and CD. Take your time and enjoy.
Pro-Language  Mar 15, 2005
I am not an Arabic language professor, but this book helped me a lot. It is a conversational tool, not a grammar tool. Trying to learn Arabic wasn't easy and of course, its an ongoing project, but I found the book very helpful. My wife and our travel tour guide did as well.

(Note: the map in the front of the book is to designate where the language is spoken, ie. not in Israel. I do not interpret it as a political statement.
not the best language book  Jan 29, 2005
I'm starting Arabic classes in a few months, but I wanted a bit of a head start as the Arabic language does not seem like it will be very easy to learn. This book seemed like a fun approach: it's very colorful with a lot of picutres and activities. After I bought it I realized that it doesn't have the best format. Arabic is read right to left. The author puts arabic expressions into English sentences (read left to right, of course), even though there are completely different grammar rules for the two languages. As if that isn't bad enough, the transliterations are also read left to right. I think this is very dangerous for someone trying to learn the new system because it trains you to read the language in the wrong direction. Also, all the pictures can get a bit distracting, and, overall, it's hard to focus on learning the language. There is no prep for learning the alphabet--it has only one exercise concerning this major hurdle. I would not recommend this book.
