The lessons are short, sweet and effective, if a little elementary in the syllable breakdown. The reader is pleasant and smooth.
I have no idea why, but all the extra tidbits are focused on Morocco and the lessons start out wishing you well on your trip to Morocco. It gets annoying if you're learning Arabic for any other reason.
Not Modern Standard Arabic
This audiobook focuses on MOROCCAN dialect Arabic, which is only really useful if you are going to Morocco or mostly speaking with Moroccan people. People from other countries often have a difficult time understanding many parts of Moroccan dialect; so just be warned. btw, a dialect in Arabic can be a different way to pronounce letters like Jeem vs Geem w/ MSA and Egyptian arabic, but it more often means totally different words for things, particularly with Moroccan dialect... buyer beware.
