See my review of the French Assimil also Assimil is the name of a French company that has published languages courses since It all started with a course for French speakers who wanted to learn English. Since the beginning, the course has been accompanied by audio recordings.

The first edition has since become known for its humorous and sometimes silly jokes and illustrations. Assimil continues to publish new language courses to this day. How the Assimil method works Assimil has an intuitive approach, where you primarily learn through passive consumption of the language. You read and listen, but grammar explanations and exercises, although present, are kept at a minimum. Many language students, multilinguals and polyglots can testify to the veracity of this theory.

So although it not being strictly proven, a lot of things point to the Assimil approach as being the right way to go. An Assimil guide starts out simple: In the beginning you read short dialogues formed by primarily high frequency words, or, the words that are most commonly used in the language. You read the dialogue on the left page, while listening to the audio recording. In the Arabic version, the words are spelled out with the Arabic script, as well as in romanization.

The Arabic Assimil has 77 lessons. The course description proposes that you read and listen through one lesson per day until you finish half of the book, then go back to lesson one and start reading it without looking at the translation, actively trying to figure out the meaning, only looking at the facing page for eventual support.

How I use Assimil Arabic In reality, you need to do much more. I propose that you read seven lessons per day, instead of just one. I also propose that you once in a while read through all the past lessons that you have done when you have a moment to spare, and that you listen to the audio dialogues as often as possible, both in the background while doing other thing and actively.

Arabic has the added difficulty of the script which Assimil handles by gradually introducing a new letter here and there. I think that this gradual approach works wonders for learning how to read the Arabic script, but I suggest that you, in addition to the other activities you do with Assimil also try and write out the new lesson that you add each day.

This will help you, not only in learning the script, but also in reviewing new vocabulary in another way than reading and listening. Is the vocabulary in Assimil Arabic useful?

In my opinion, criticizing Assimil for teaching the wrong vocabulary, is like assuming that learning stops after Assimil. I guarantee that this is not the case. You need it all, so the dialogues may as well be entertaining.

This is essential for the distinction between learning a language and assimilating it. Think about your native language — would you be able to explain the grammar to someone learning the language? Probably not. Assimilation, in fact, is the only way to learn a language.

Grammar study is learning about the language. Which words go together, and in what form. The idea is, that rather than seeing each word as one learning object, you see chunks of the language as an object instead, which means that you get a sense for the relationship between words and the combination of them rather than just knowing a lot of words.

The main point of critique is the audio recordings in Arabic. I actually agree. Above all, the voices need to be pleasant to listen to. This choice is no doubt made to illustrate the use of singular, but it is done by formatting the common greeting that everybody uses into something else. Part of it is due to the Arabic language being highly rational. It makes sense to explain some of the inner workings of Arabic, for it is really quite complicated structurally.

The Assimil approach is all about learning from context, so I take the grammar notes with a grain of salt, and I advice you to do the same. Read them, by all means. Repeat a couple of times. Read the notes and a grammar. Try finding examples of the explanations in the Arabic text. Write the Arabic text by hand, sounding out what you write. Look at the printed Arabic text as much as you must. Also do pick up the book and read through past lessons as often as you can.

When you finish lesson 50, it is time to start the Active wave. Read the Arabic text, and listen to the recording without looking at the translation. Try and figure out what it means. Read through the text a second time, but in the version without the tashkeel vowel diacritic marks — try sounding out the words, and check with the audio version afterwards if you got the pronunciation right.
