Description from the publisher:

Modern Iraqi Arabic is an introductory textbook for those with no previous knowledge of Arabic or those who know Arabic but want to learn the Iraqi dialect. Accompanied by six audio CDs, the book is suitable for classroom or self-study. A detailed discussion of the consonants, vowels, and other characteristics of Iraqi phonetics-including pronunciation exercises on the CDs-serve the needs of travelers, businesspeople, diplomats, archaeologists, and scholars who want to learn to speak the language quickly and efficiently. Using the dialect of middle-class Baghdad, sixteen lessons are arranged in a story-like format and are based on everyday travel situations. The book contains basic dialogue, grammar, vocabulary, drills, and an extensive glossary. A section of idiomatic phrases, accompanied by their cultural, religious, or proverbial explanations, offers insight into current Iraqi culture.

Includes six audio CDs

Alkalesi is founder and president of Arabico, Inc., a California corporation that offers language translation, educational audio-visual materials, and cross cultural programs to American businesspeople and companies working in the Middle East.
