Learn over 20 essential words at the heart of Modern Standard Arabic and how to put them together to make yourself understood. This 1-hour basic introduction to Modern Standard Arabic with the Michel Thomas Method will get you speaking the language immediately: no books, no pens, no memorizing – just listen, connect and speak.
How does it work?
During the course, you will join Michel Thomas Method teacher Jane Wightwick, native speaker Mahmoud Gaafar and two students in a live lesson, learning from both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. Within the very first hour you will be able to construct simple phrases by listening and thinking out answers for yourself without the pressure of writing or memorizing. You learn through your own language, so there’s no stress, and no anxiety. You’ll stick with it because you’ll love it.
Why is the method so successful?
The Michel Thomas Method was perfected over 50 years by celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. This unique method works with your brain and draws on the principles of instructional psychology. Knowledge is structured and organised so that you assimilate the language easily and don’t forget it. The method breaks down the language into building blocks that are introduced sequentially in such a way that you create your response and move on to ever-more-complex sentences. There is no need to stop for homework, additional exercises or vocabulary memorization, so you progress rapidly.
