The comprehensive Arabic language tutorial package developed by Jabra F. Ghneim has proven to be an invaluable tool for students of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). His work, which involves a vast amount of critical listening and reading question and answer exercises, has proven to be vital to the student that is required to grasp a wide range of global language knowledge. Mr. Ghneim has developed a masterful project that keenly recognizes the necessities for basic and expert understanding of MSA. The material is interwoven from subject to subject which enables the student to quickly transcend all subject matter barriers of learning a foreign language.

Jabra Ghneim is an excellent language instructor. His excellent command of both Arabic and English coupled with highly effective teaching methods ensures improved results. Under his instruction I was able to raise my scores to their highest levels in 15 years. I would highly recommend his materials and intend to make them a part of my test preparation routine.

I'm impressed with it (the book) and I do recommend it - based soley on having perused the reading portion (I haven't checked out the listening portion yet but the reading portion alone is great for what the book is intended to do). It is not a "learn Arabic" book. It's an improvement tool for folks who already have some Arabic. It is very well focused specifically on improving DLPT performance. I think the folks who could most benefit from this are those at the 1+ to 2 level who are serious about spending some time and effort getting to 3. This book will help them focus their effort and get the most DLPT improvement out of the time they invest. Casting a wide net in newspapers and internet and reading widely is another approach. But in this book Mr. Ghneim has already cast that wide net for you and collected the material in an easy to use format - plus taken the extra step of constructing DLPT-like questions about the material. He is clearly familiar not only with the kinds of materials that go into a DLPT, but also with the kinds of questions that are constructed around those materials.
