More information

Below is further information captured for this release.

Extra notes on cover, middle (gatefold sleeve) and any inserts

This record of pronunciation practice is primarily intended as an accompaniment to the BBC radio course 'Intorduction to Arabic' although it should be of assistance to anyone studying the language for the purpose of speaking it.

It refers only to educated spoken Arabic found in Jordan, Syria and the Lebanon and, to a lesser degree, Egypt. It does not attempt to deal with facts of the language outside this 'middle' region. For the same reason, the leaflet accompanying the record restricts the information given to pronunciation prevailing in these areas.

The first side of the record concentrates on the sounds of Arabic and you should read the instructions before you start working with it. Side 2 gives practice in word-linking and continuous speech.

Further information

BBC sub label for foreign language records.

This was the first BBC label starting in the early 1960's. Their were (to start with) Radio shows where by listeners could follow the programme on the Radio then purchase the record and separate book to continue their learning.

Later the shows were also recorded for television and the records and books became more widely available via record and book shops.
