It is a most useful and interesting tool for getting to know the modern Arabic language. Ian
I am currently working in Jerusalem, and your website is the perfect classical arabic complement to my daily dialectal practice with my palestinian colleagues. Gilles
I am really enjoying my subscription to naturalarabic.com. Thank you so much for providing such a great service. Elena
I rarely send mails of this type but this time around I could not resist. NATURALARABIC is for my purpose the best Arabic programme I have ever found so far. It ABSOLUTELY answers all my needs. After completing the basic Arabic courses, I just could not find a course that would help me achieve a steady and meaningful progress in my Arabic studies. I have been checking out your site "Natural Arabic" and think it is absolutely wonderful. I have been trying to find something that would help me master reading Arabic for about a year. OD
I think the Natural Arabic web site is excellent. Geoffrey
Thank you for a wonderful website. Taqi
Thanks for the great site. I am a recent suscriber and very happy with what I have seen thusfar. Belal

I am a current subscriber to your site. I commend you on your site, it is very helpful. I use the site as often as I can. Merwan
I am trying to learn Arabic in order to read Al Qu'ran and really like your free sample of Al-Faatihah; it helps me decipher, the sound, the alphabet and the meaning at the same time! Aminah

Khalill
Hi I just wanted to email and tell you guys that your doing a wonderful job. Your site has helped me a lot in terms of the media aspect of Arabic and I'm grateful for that. I've been studying arabic now for a solid year (In Egypt) and have gone through many methods of learning this beautfiul language and when I stumbled on your site I knew I found a gem :-). Thanks Imran
My reading ability in Arabic has improved tremendously since I subscribed. I am so glad this is available. All the best, silvia
I am an English speaker from Canada with little prior knowledge of Arabic. I have just received my order of the archives of Natural Arabic 2006. Perhaps I am being hasty since I have had little time to sit down and really tackle your product, but I am exceedingly pleased with it thus far. I still use my dictionary and study grammar from other sources but your concept seems to help me remember vocabulary much easier. For instance I go to www.madinaharabic.com and have a harder time remembering vocabulary. Although that site is useful for grammar. It seems strange that I have never myself seen such a simple concept applied to learning other languages. It would seem a "no-brainer". I would hope that in the future you could add even more articles per week. Keep up the good work. Joshua
Just wanted to say thanks very much for your efforts, it's a great Arabic language learning website. Doubtlessly, there many potentials, and hope to see more of your project in the near future. All the best, Dhafir
I've been using Natural Arabic for several months now. It's an excellent tool and I'm learning a lot from it! Thank you for all your hard work! Matthew
Your site is simply AWESOME. Usually, it would take me very long to read an article having to look up all unknown words in a "physical" paper dictionary, which disheartened me and made me quit the effort; now, using your site I can learn new words in a very natural way, just like Arabs do, I guess, without having to use a dictionary.

JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT YOU HAVE A GREAT WEBSITE. I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS FOR AGES. I FELT THAT MY ARABIC WAS STAGNATING AND THIS HAS PROVIDED ME WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY DEVELOP MY ARABIC. I LIKED IT SO MUCH THAT I SUBSCRIBED STRAIGHT AWAY. I CAN' T WAIT TO START GOING THROUGH THE ARTICLES. THANKS AGAIN FOR DEVELOPING THIS SITE!!!!! SHAZLEE
Congratulations!!! A wonderful project. I shall certainly adopt it in my lessons. Martin
