spoken by approximately 190 million people, Arabic is the lingua franca
of the Middle East. This title uses a standard Arabic helpful to those
travelling all over the region. The emphasis is on commonly heard terms
and phrases that are recognisable throughout the Arabic speaking world.

romanised transliteration. The two-way dictionary contains important
travel, geographical, and cultural terminology, while the phrasebook
focuses on the needs of travellers and covers almost every situation
from arrival to departure.
