There are many books which are [preferable for Egyptian Arabic these days, from Woidich’s grammar of Cairene to the Kallimni ‘Arabi series and the recent  Umm al-Dunya, as well as the recent ‘Arabi Liblib volumes, but in the late 1990s, when I used this book, it was one of the best. A close friend (who actually advanced to fluency) swears by al-Tonsi and al-Sawi (1990), but I prefer this one, somewhat similar to the Abdel Massih volumes.

28 lessons, starting from the basics and ending with extensive dialogues, some of which are utilitarian and others more fun; finally, a few songs at the end.  140 pages of grammar in the front, a glossary in the back.

I finished it eventually, though lesson 16 was a hard nut to crack without an instructor and without a dictionary.

I don’t think any audio was produced.
