It's amazing how 100 key words and phrases provide instant communication!
Do you want to speak simple Arabic but are too busy to study it? Are you visiting the Arabic–speaking world for a short time and want an Arabic phrase book and dictionary to help you communicate? If so, this is the book for you. It is the easiest and quickest way to learn Arabic. It's tiny 0.4 x 4.1 x 5.9 inches size makes it incredibly convenient to travel with but without losing the most essential content for communication.
The idea of Instant Arabic is simple—learn 100 words and phrases and say 1,000 things. The trick is knowing which 100 words to learn, but author Fethi Mansouri has solved the problem, choosing only those words you'll hear again and again. Even with a vocabulary this small, you'll be surprised how quickly and fluently you too can communicate in the Arabic language. The pronunciation for each Arabic word in the book follows a precise and simple formula that will quickly become so familiar that conversing in Arabic phrases and sentences soon feels just as 'normal' as speaking English. Here's a sample of what you'll be able to do:
Ride the subway.
Order food and drinks.
And much more.
