If you're new to Arabic, then this level should be your starting point. We tend to present short dialogues with useful phrases for practical everyday situations. The lessons are mainly in English, with the Arabic translations spoken slowly and clearly. The Beginner's level is the best place to start, whether you want to master the language or just require a few key phrases to help you on your trips to the world of Arabia.
