I trialed the Rocket Arabic module and was impressed enough to purchase the premium package. The series has interesting audio lessons that are supplemented with exercises and pronunciation self-tests. I'm only interested in learning Arabic for travel purposes - I often visit the Middle East - and this works perfectly for that. The series does not include heavy grammar at the beginning but does include the letters and extensive vocabulary. The points goal is helpful to keep me motivated to study a bit of Arabic each day, which is essential for language learning. I also appreciate that it teaches Egyptian Arabic and not the much less useful (for the traveller, at least) Modern Standard Arabic.

My only gripe is that they do not have a Levantine Arabic version, but this is a tiny quibble and not in accordance with what most customers are looking for, so it's understandable.
