This is definitely one of the best phrase books out there. While living in Cairo I took it almost everywhere I went, using it a countless number of times each day. Its accuracy - in terms of Egypt's unique colloquial - is unrivalled by other phrase books I used while in the region. It has very few - if any - flaws and at under five dollars is of excellent value. Highly recommended.

The "Egyptian Arabic, a rough guide phrasebook" was pretty good. It clearly tells you how to speak Arabic. Within minuets my friend and I were having a pointless conversation that envolved words taken from all over the book. The only thing wrong with the book was that it was hard to tell if you were saying the words corectly or not. It should really have better Pronunciation for the words. This book is a pocket-sized book so its easy to carry around. I'm only 13, but I recomend this book to anyone who wants to learn Arabic.
