Learning Arabic Phrases in Egypt



….and welcome to the learning adventure of Michele, travel vlogger and linguist.

Last year we recruited language-learning traveller, Michele, of the intrepid guide, to try out Rosetta Stone as she prepared for her big Autumn trip to Egypt. We gave her full access to our online learning programme, Arabic phrasebook and online tutors for two months before she flew. By way to return, she recorded this inspiring video about her language-learning holiday and the places and people she saw.

Learn the language for your holiday too

Rosetta Stone makes the perfect introduction to a new language. It quickly gets you familiar with sights and sounds of that language and gives you the basic phrases and understanding you need to explore.

To whom it may concern,

I am a Rosetta stone user. I managed to convince few friends to

buy your programme, because I know by personal ex[peroence that

it works.

But I would like to point out that Michele’s pronunciation is too

perfect, to natural in few words…she sounds like a native arabic speaking

person. She has for sure something related to her family ties with arabic

roots. For the sake of your knowledge….I lived in the Middle East few years

and I do speak arabic since 1977 and no way that I can sound like she does.

So for the correct approch to your method DO NOT CHEAT, let people to

be able to learn without dreaming to much. Thank you

    Hi there! Happy to hear you enjoy learning with Rosetta Stone. Thanks for your comment. Language learning works a bit different for everyone and Michele really had no experience with speaking Arabic. She does speak several other languages but this one was a real challenge for her. She is from Australia and now lives in the UK. In her first video at 1:50 she also explains herself how learning Arabic is a challenge since it’s very different from the languages she already speaks. She made quite a few efforts to learn the language with us and also practiced in Egyptian restaurants in London and then went to Egypt for the first time to put her skills to the test. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_H8Hoj-kgc
