Paperback: 400 pages. ISBN-13: 978-1589010604. The mp3 CD included really helps when it comes to listening and recognizing new vocabulary, as well as helping pronunciation. Also, as opposed to some other Arabic texts, the words in the book are actually in Arabic and not transliterated into English letters, which helps with reading as well.

The Georgetown series on spoken Arabic varies widely in quality. By comparison, this book does not deliver much. When they say "Basic", they're not kidding: The vocabulary is very limited, although useful and with drilling (1960's style repetition) one certainly gets it down.

The Middle East has become an increasingly important place in the minds and concerns of the English-speaking world. This volume, originally published under the title Jerusalem Arabic, is the gold standard for anyone beginning to learn the Arabic spoken by Palestinians, or those who live in Syria or Lebanon.

Written in transcription using the Roman alphabet, the "Levantine" Arabic, or Jerusalem dialect, is a central Middle Eastern dialect and is recognized by Arabs virtually anywhere -- in large part due to the Palestinian diaspora -- and a good choice for anyone wishing to learn a base Arabic dialect. Enhanced by a CD with MP3 files (replacing the former set of nine audiocassettes), Eastern Arabic provides the best available structured introduction to the essential features and vocabulary of spoken Palestinian Arabic.

This was a great purchase i'm trying to learn the Levantine dialect in Arabic and this book helps a lot! The dvd is great because listening practice helps you pick up the sounds and i enjoy this book!

This is probably the best available option for learning the Arabic actually spoken around the Eastern Mediterranian. Originally its title was 'Jerusalem Arabic' which means that what you are really getting is the Palestinian dialect, which is very close to Syrian and not quite as close to Lebanese. Learners who come to it from an Egyptian background will also find much that is familiar in the grammar and vocabulary.

The lessons build on each other in a very logical way so that even an absolute beginner with no previous Arabic exposure should be able to work through them. The vocabulary is not the most interesting, but it is useful for everyday life and interactions with native speakers in their own environment- however, it doesn't go much beyond that. Also, the drilling is very 1960s- rote exercises, for instance a set of sentences with a feminine subject which have to be converted to plural, or plural subjects to be converted to singular. And because of the book's age, some of the expressions it introduces might be a little dated by now. The only solution for this, of course, is the help of a native speaker.

Still, since there are many fewer pedagogical materials for Levantine Arabic (and very few of them recent) than other forms of vernacular Arabic (Egyptian or even Gulf) this is a course that a beginning learner can plow ahead with. One irksome feature: the book does not make use of the Arabic alphabet at all. Transcription is a lot of unnecessary bother for a native teacher and an absolute dead end for the student, who will never have any occasion to use it again after completing the course.
