What Survival Linkword Arabic Can Do For You
This course is designed to get you to pick up, in a single day, an extensive targeted
vocabulary which will enable you to communicate in useful situations you are likely to meet
in Saudia Arabia - or any Arabic speaking country - such as in the restaurant, at the hotel,
travelling, shopping, in emergencies and so on. It is ideal, therefore, if you have to be in an
Arabic speaking country tomorrow or next week on holiday or business, or for the student
who wants to acquire an extensive vocabulary rapidly. You can even learn a useful amount
on the plane!

Why then is learning so quick and easy? Because Linkword Courses are unique in not only
teaching you what to learn, but how to remember what you learn. This is done through
the use of images, which make you link the English word to another word which sounds like
the Arabic word you want to remember. For example, the Arabic for DUCK is BOTTAH.
Imagine you cover a duck with BUTTER.

This course concentrates on teaching useful nouns, although other helpful words and some
simple phrases are included. This is because if you are beginning a language, nouns are all-
important for communication. If you are in a restaurant for example, and can say ‘bill
please!’, you will be presented with the bill. If you just say ‘I want’ you won’t get anything!
You will be amazed at how much difference a knowledge of the contents of this course will
make to your enjoyment of your holiday or trip abroad and to overcoming the feeling of
isolation you often get when you don’t understand the language of the country you are
visiting. Anyone who has ever used a phrase book will know how difficult they are to use,
and how useful it is to know the words one needs, instead of trying to look them up. This
course allows you to be your own mental phrase book!

3
How to Use Survival Linkword Arabic
1. You will be presented with words like this:
The Arabic for DUCK is BOTTAH
Imagine you cover a duck with butter.

Imagine this picture in your mind as vividly as possible for 10 seconds..

2. After you have read the image you should think about it in your mind’s eye for about
10 seconds before going on to the next word. If you do not spend enough time
thinking about the image it will not stick in your memory as well as it should.

3. Sometimes the word in Arabic and in English is the same or very similar. For
example, the Arabic for TELEPHONE is TELEFON. When this happens you
imagine the word interacting with the desert. For example, Imagine a telephone
ringing in the desert. Every time the word desert comes to mind you will know the
word is the same or very similar in Arabic and English.

IMPORTANT NOTES

Don’t worry if you don’t get all the words correct the first time you go through the course.
No one can expect to get all of the words right first time. Don’t worry about what you can’t
remember, think of all the words you do remember! Only after you have reached the end of
the course should you go back to learn any words you have forgotten.

You can carry on learning until you feel tired. However, if you begin to feel tired, you must
stop and have a break.

IMPORTANT NOTE
This is the end of the course. We hope you have enjoyed it. Of course what you have learned
will not make you fluent, but it will help enormously in a large number of situations that you
will meet abroad. Don't be afraid to try out what you have learned. Your host will appreciate
you making the effort, even if you are sometimes wrong.

The Linkword Method is a very fast method of learning. However, as with any other method
of language learning, some of the words will be forgotten unless you go over them from time
to time or use them in real life situations. It is strongly recommended that you go over the
whole course again a day or two after you have completed it, and then about a month later.

Don't worry about forgetting some words. You will be surprised at how quickly you relearn
any that you have forgotten when you go over the course again, and just think of all the
words you have learned.

DON’T FORGET TO CHECK OUR HOME PAGE FOR MORE EXTENSIVE COURSES
