OVER 11 HOURS OF AUDIO INSTRUCTION. THIS IS A 2 CD DISK SET. Tactical Iraqi Arabic for Marine Expeditionary Forces features: * further accurized Iraqi dialect spoken by native Iraqi speakers. * expanded dialogues * supplementary vocabulary * basic grammatical notes * function-focused language cards in text and audio. Purpose The central purpose of this language tool is to assist Marines to understand the basics of what is being said to them and to convey meaning in the Arabic words and phrases they will know. It is designed with the realization that often one need only understand 60% of what a foreign language speaker is saying in order to grasp his main intent. Further some of what is presented here is in grammatical terms technically not entirely correct. This has been a conscious choice in order to favor the quick efficient easy-to-pronounce method that is still comprehensible to a native Arabic speaker. Uses of Tactical Iraqi Arabic As Audio Program Only Start with the audio for language cards focusing on specific operational situations. (It is highly recommended that you use the text for the language cards as well.) For lessons start with Dialogue 1. Each dialogue reflects current operating conditions in Iraq. 1. You will hear the dialogue at about 70% of normal speed. 2. Each sentence will be read separately with translation. Additionally significant points of vocabulary will be repeated word by word. 3. The vocabulary for the entire dialogue will be repeated reinforcing exposure. 4. The dialogue as a whole will be read again at 80-85% of normal speed. That will be the end of the lesson. II. As Audio and Text Program All written read-along material can be found here in PDF: you can download and print it. Dialogues for lessons 1-18 (of a total of 21) are color-coded to indicate speaker in dialogue though black-and-white printers will suffice. When using the texts be aware that we have spelled words in a way specifically intended so that an American-accented English speaker will pronounce them according to American English habits. The result will be Arabic pronunciation approximating Iraqi dialect. Read the text as written and not attempt to simulate or fabricate a Middle Eastern accent. However note the following special characters: * the capital H represents the j sound as in Baja California; * the kh represents the ch sound as in achtung; * the ( represents the (ayin as in (Abdullah; * the capital G represents the gh sound Steps for Using Tactical Iraqi Arabic as Audio and Text Program 1. Read through the vocabulary terms before listening to the dialogue. 2. After listening to an entire lesson you and a partner go through the dialogue in A-B exchanges 3. Then work to develop small variations on the exchanges in the dialogues. This will assist you to memorize certain phrases and their response for rapid ability to communicate intent to Iraqis while in country. 4. Subsequent to initial study review of vocab and phrases. 5. Listen to dialogues and create short dialogues with your buddies. These steps will prepare you to rapidly initiate communication and respond to Iraqi phrases even if you only understand part of what you hear.
