I was waiting until i had completed the whole course to write a review and today is that day. I can't praise this Rocket Arabic programme enough, i now feel like i am at an intermediate speaking level of Egyptian Arabic thanks to this. Being half Egyptian myself I had always wanted to learn the language as unfortunately i wasn't taught it growing up, so i thought i would take matters into my own hands and purchase a programme to teach it myself and i'm so glad i chose this one. I now feel that i will be able to communicate well with my family when i visit Egypt and will be able to understand a lot of things. The programme is well layed out and Hany and Amira are great characters, i had fun learning and listening to each module. The voice recording feature is wonderful and a great addition to the course, if i found at times it didn't work properly i would just refresh the page and it would work perfectly fine. I also like the fact that i can go back to it and go over everything i've learnt whenever i want. Thank you so much and i hope to see a level 2 of Egyptian Arabic in the future!
I love the setup of the conversations repeated slowly with time for you to say out loud every word!
I love the lessons, they give you all the words that you need to know first. This builds confidence in the language learning. Eating the elephant one bite at a time really helps!
I also enjoy how they have a male and a female say every word and phrase, so you can hear the differences.
I'm really pleased with Rocket Language: Arabic! The only downside is that they haven't created more levels!! I would purchase all of them! There are several features that I find especially useful: 1) I can use it anywhere, 2) I can use complete lessons on my computer or my iPhone 3) the technology allows the program to check my pronunciation. I have checked out every app I could find and Rocket Language was by far the most comprehensive without being complicated--it is a very intuitive program.
Arabic was the first language my son and I started learning through Rocket Languages, and we love it so much that I also purchased Rocket Spanish a few months ago. We started homeschooling last month, and whenever someone in the homeschool community asks for recommendation on studying a foreign language, I give a glowing review of Rocket and direct them to this site. I really love the way the alphabet, vowels, and numbers are covered. Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful tool!
Pretty Cool software. Nice recognition and crazy points system keeps me motivated.
Much better value than Pilmsler in my opinion.
I love that you are able to speak through lessons. It feels like you have a great friend to practice with, except they are always there for practice!
Only wish is that the voice recorder would have a stop button because it doesn't seem to stop recording if fans are playing in the background or other white noise.
I have been studying Rocket Egyptian Arabic since early April and it is the highlight of my day. I have tried several courses over the years and this one seems to be working for me. I work on the computer for about half an hour most days and I have downloaded the conversation to my MP3 player and listen to two or three lessons while I am out running in the morning. I have never had an ability to learn languages in the past and have been struggling with Arabic on and off for a number of years but I am determined to stay with this programme and I am hopeful I will be able to master a reasonable level of communication by the time I get to the end of the course. I'm loving it!!
I completed Pimsleur Egyptian Arabic Level 1 and attempted some Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) for 2 weeks before going back to focusing on a dialect since nobody speaks MSA. This course is great but to get the most out of it, you have to focus on writing & reading everything (no shortcuts) in Arabic Script as many times as necessary until you don't have to rely on the latin (Franco-Arabic Script). Only then, can you move on to reading Arabic (Egyptian) Press, Books, Graded Readers, song lyrics etc... This program will get you to a solid intermediate!
Unfortunately, this software does not allow me to become fluent, as this only makes you an "intermediate" speaker with a premium level of 1 compared to others who have 3. The software for Arabic really needs some more information on writing the language, as it is by far the hardest lessons to learn. I have studied it for hours and still, I do not understand one bit the Arabic alphabet and how to write in Arabic. Other than that this is this software is above average that allows you to learn at your own pace. I also enjoy that I can use this software forever for only %150.
Ahlan beekum, hello everyone. Rocket Arabic is a pretty great tool, gets you stuck right into learning all the relevant phrases straight away so you can begin communicating as soon as you feel comfortable. Would recommend to anyone willing to learn quickly and effectively.
