Yea it's true lol.

Maybe you could attract some non Muslims, people who celebrate Christmas. But if you're asking a Muslim..it's a contradictive offer...

We don't wanna do Christmas shopping..:)

This points out that not all Arabic speaking people are Muslim. Many Arabs in Egypt are Christian.

When checking out an Arabic language course you need to first see if it is teaching Colloquial Arabic or Qur'anic Arabic. The colloquial is good if you plan to use it for visiting the country, but if your desire is to learn the Qur'an it is best to find a Qur'anic Arabic Course.

Indeed. Around 10-20% of Egyptians are Christian, 10% of Syrians are Christian, 6% of Palestinians are Christian and around 5% of Jordanians are Christian... Arab and Muslim is not synonymous.

I can not find anything wrong with the course. But, it is not Qur'anic and the course seems to be aimed more for non-Muslim tourists. The course does teach Egyptian and Standard Arabic, but conversational, colloquial and not the Arabic of the Qur'an.

It would be nice for a tourist to Egypt or for somebody interested in a starting place for learning Modern Arabic.

Do not expect to be able to understand the Qur'an on the basis of this course.

True. Quranic Arabic is very different to this, although this course does help.

I agree it would help with learning to read the Qur'an. But I believe it would hinder with learning the proper pronunciation. I learned Moroccan Arabic many years ago and to this day I am ashamed at how I pronounce the beautiful words in the Qur'an. No matter how hard I try my pronunciation slips back to the modern colloquial

I was thinking along the lines of transalation :)
I started off learning Quranic Arabic, but when I decided to do my A level, i found modern Arabic sooooo hard!! I stuck with what I was used to lol.
Maybe it was because of what I was used to? :?
Its quite different, as I found out.

There is nothing wrong with the course itself...it's just the "Christmas offer" bit that threw me off...otherwise it's totally ok.
