Egyptian Arabic is mainly spoken in urban Egypt. Egyptian Arabic has also gained a high degree of acceptance throughout the Arabic-speaking world because of its use in films. Pimsleur's Egyptian Arabic teaches the Cairene dialect, the prestige dialect spoken in Cairo, Egypt's capital city.

Based on the cumulative experience of three leading teachers of Arabic as a foreign language, Kalaam Gamiil builds and develops communicative skills in Egyptian Colloquial Arabic, along parallel tracks of vocabulary and grammar. It is designed for students who have reached the lower intermediate level of Modern Standard Arabic and are now ready to branch out into their first experience of a major spoken dialect. Structured around basic topics that crop up in daily conversations, lessons each include a situation, a vocabulary list, preparatory sentences using the new vocabulary items, explanations of grammar in English, cultural information, and a variety of mechanical drills and communicative exercises.
The book, volume one of a two-part series, focuses on the speaking and listening skills that will enable intermediate students to handle a variety of uncomplicated communicative tasks with native speakers of Egyptian Arabic successfully.

Product Description:
EGYPTIAN ARABIC: Easy Stories With English Translations is a fun yet challenging collection of simple, short stories aimed at both young and adult learners of the spoken language of Egypt. Designed with high-beginners to low-intermediate learners in mind, this book will improve your comprehension and build on your vocabulary as you progress through each carefully crafted mini story. One of the issues that many Arabic students of spoken dialects face is that most written material is in Modern Standard Arabic or Classical Arabic (formal dialect).

There is very little available for learners who have moved beyond the basics and are looking for literary resources at an appropriate reading level in colloquial, spoken language.

So we've carefully crafted a series of 12 short/mini stories that progressively increase in length and difficulty which we're sure you'll enjoy and benefit from.

What you'll find in 'Egyptian Arabic - Easy Stories With English Translations':
  • 12 mini stories on various focus topics, full of high-frequency vocabulary and expressions pertaining to those topics.
  • Stories gradually rise in length and difficulty.
  • Comprehension exercises at the end of each story (100% in Egyptian Arabic).
  • Key vocabulary lists for each story.
  • Full English translations.
  • Larger font and moderate use of tashkeel (vowel markings) to improve readability for lower-level learners.
  • Dialogues are bolded.
  • Note-taking sections.
This book assumes that you:
  • Have already moved beyond the absolute basics of Arabic (High-Beginner -> Low-Intermediate).
  • Already have foundational vocabulary of the most common words.
  • Can already read Arabic script (there is no transliteration in the book).
Who this book is not for:
  • Absolute beginners with no previous Arabic knowledge.
  • Advanced learners who may find it too easy.
Importantly, these stories have been written purposefully in the everyday, spoken vernacular of Egypt. No standard or formal dialect.

As a learner of Arabic, we're confident that you'll enjoy and benefit from our easy story collection.

Product Description:

The Pimsleur Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You'll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! Egyptian Arabic Phase 1, Lessons 1-30 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty, 30-minute lessons. In the first 10 lessons, you'll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You'll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

In the next 10 lessons, you'll build on what you've learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You'll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

In the final 10 lessons of Phase 1, you'll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You'll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30 to provide you with an introduction to reading the Arabic alphabet. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

Product Description:
Kamaan Shuwayya 'An Nafsi ("A Little More About Myself") will be of tremendous help to independent language learners who want to develop their conversational skills and increase their Arabic vocabulary.

Bonus: Free audio tracks available to download and stream from www.lingualism.com.

Very simply, Kamaan Shuwayya ‘An Nafsi presents the results of a survey given to 10 Egyptians. Each of the 36 sections in the book begins with a question from the survey followed by the 10 responses and a breakdown of the vocabulary and concludes with a page where you are encouraged to give your own answer to the question using newly learned words and phrases.

This book is the second of a two-part series. If you are not yet at an intermediate level of Egyptian Arabic, it is advised that you complete the first book, Shuwayya ‘An Nafsi (which includes features to assist elementary-level learners: phonemic transcriptions for the texts and even the most basic words are introduced in the chapter glossaries) before moving on to Kamaan Shuwayya ‘An Nafsi. In Kamaan Shuwayya ‘An Nafsi, only glossed words include phonemic transcriptions. Common words which appear numerous times throughout the book do not appear in the chapter glossaries. However, they can still be found in the glossary in the back of the book. The responses are typically somewhat longer than those in the first book.

For more advanced learners, the texts appear again in the back of the book without voweling (tashkeel) or translations (Appendix B), to provide a more challenging reading experience without distractions. Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) translations of the texts (Appendix C) are also given for learners who are more proficient in MSA and can benefit from comparing the similarities and differences between it and Egyptian Colloquial Arabic (ECA).
