The original no-books, no-homework, no-memorizing course that gets you speaking and understanding Egyptian Arabic in weeks, not years.

Looking for a convenient way to build your Arabic vocabulary without drills, books, homework or long lists to memorize?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
In this five-hour intermediate level audio course, Michel Thomas Method teachers Jane Wightwick and Mahmoud Gaafar introduce over 600 new words and everyday phrases and the tools to allow you to create thousands more through the application of simple rules for building more words for concepts, people, places, adjectives and verbs. Learning alongside two genuine students, you will acquire essential language building blocks which allow you to increase your vocabulary in manageable, enjoyable steps by thinking out answers for yourself. You will learn at your own pace, pausing and repeating where necessary. You'll stick with it, because you'll love it.
WHY IS IT SO SUCCESSFUL?
Unlike most vocabulary courses which give you lists of words to memorize, the Michel Thomas Method based Egyptian Arabic Vocabulary Course allows you to further extend your vocabulary by unlocking what you already know. The course is designed to take advantage of the logical construction of Arabic, in which by altering words in predictable ways (e.g. by mimicking word patterns or adding regular prefixes and suffixes), you will exponentially build up your knowledge and understanding of the language.
WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?
Whether you have learned from other Michel Thomas Method courses or are simply looking for a new approach to help improve your proficiency, the high-beginner to Intermediate level Egyptian Arabic Vocabulary Course will introduce you to a unique way of acquiring language that will significantly boost your confidence in your ability to speak and understand Arabic. It is a Phase 2 course and should be used after you have completed the Intermediate Arabic Course. The course teaches Egyptian Arabic, as this variety is understood throughout the Arabic-speaking world owing to its dissemination through film and popular culture.

The thrill is that you're actually figuring it out on your own. You're engaging with another language, not just parroting it... It's an excellent way to start, and leaves the listener thinking, Hey, Ich kann do dis. - New Yorker, Easy, Tiger, Language Lessons on the Road
I've used Michel Thomas to get off the starting block for French, Italian and Spanish and I'm always surprised by how much I can say after only a few hours of listening. The Michel Thomas Italian course organises verbs into logical groups which helps you pick them up fast. And perhaps more importantly, it shows you how to use this grammar to build useful sentences. - www.joyoflanguages.com
I experienced the same sort of pleasure that you got from suddenly getting a crossword clue right or cracking a code...the finger-snapping moment of, Oh My God! I've just understood what you've said to me in Spanish or you've just understood me!
