Ace My Language: Arabic
"The comprehensive Arabic language tutorial package developed by Jabra F. Ghneim has proven to be an invaluable tool for students of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). His work, which involves a vast amount of critical listening and reading question and answer exercises, has proven to be vital to the student that is required to grasp a wide range of global language knowledge. Mr. Ghneim has developed a masterful project that keenly recognizes the necessities for basic and expert understanding of MSA. The material is interwoven from subject to subject which enables the student to quickly transcend all subject matter barriers of learning a foreign language."
- Jason E., Arabic Linguist, US Navy
"I'm impressed with this and I do recommend it. It is not a "learn Arabic" app. It's an improvement tool for folks who already have some Arabic. It is very well focused specifically on improving DLPT performance. Casting a wide net in newspapers and internet and reading widely is another approach. But in this app Mr. Ghneim has already cast that wide net for you and collected the material in an easy to use format - plus taken the extra step of constructing DLPT-like questions about the material. He is clearly familiar not only with the kinds of materials that go into a DLPT, but also with the kinds of questions that are constructed around those materials."

This is Ace My Language: Arabic, the only mobile app to prepare military, government and college language students for their Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT) V in Modern Standard Arabic. The DLPT is a crucial test that measures the language knowledge of people who want to work in the US government with a focus on the Arabic-speaking Middle East. The app prepares students for the test and for their jobs. Guaranteed to increase your score on the exam. Includes up to 406 articles from authentic Arabic sources and corresponding native audio for each passage. This app is used at West Point, The Defense Language Institute, Foreign Service Institute and other military language schools around the country.
This is the ultimate resource you or your students will need to prepare for your job requirements as a translator, analyst or simply to prepare for standard Arabic language tests that examine your listening and reading skills. It is also a great resource for Arabic students in an academic environment or those studying Arabic independently to pass Arabic standard tests as administered by government agencies or academic institutions. Immerse yourself in Arabic like never before to get the results you want and improve your score.
This app provides:
* Up to over 400 challenging passages, questions, and audio passages by a native speaker of Arabic simulating the actual DLPT format for real practice testing experience (six articles are included in the free distribution and others are available through in-app purchase).
* Live material from various open media sources covering all DLPT content objectives including economics, politics, science, technology, geography, culture, social, military, and security.
* Comprehensive exposure to critical terminology and vocabulary, both familiar and unfamiliar, in various contexts, to increase your overall vocabulary and to improve your ability to infer and deduce meaning.
* Material of varying levels of complexity, including Arabic and foreign names of people and places, to challenge your listening and reading comprehension.
* Over 8.5 hours of articles spoken by an MSA native for deep exposure in a variety of topics.
This app is not geared for beginners. You don't get grammar or vocabulary. It's an exercise experience to practice listening and reading skills for Arabic, aimed at improving operational proficiency in the language.

Ratings and Reviews
The format and vocabulary are great. I transcribe the listening and check it with the reading passages and I learn something new with each passage. The passages are also very clear!
Better than refresher
I was sub 2 Arab ling and went to a 4 month Arabic refresher course and this was the bread an butter of it. Really was a waste of time minus the per diem. If your command won't let you go for a couple months to refresh, or too busy with deployments, ect. do not fret because this is the reading and listening you will practice during the course anyway minus daily Akhbar haha. This app and program is great because the maker of ACE has selected the most used and repeated vocab from media news articles and thrown them into 500+ articles and passages. Make this you're bible and you surely will ace the dlpt.
The Genius of language learning
The Author of Ace my language is a veteran linguist and a professional scholar and academic. Jabra Ghneim is a language scientist. You will love this product and will love learning from a professional with a soothing voice and a revolutionary way in teaching the language. No wonder that this is the certified and recognized syllabus for the DLPT and the U.S. Government and Military. This app has no match in the App Store for what it does. Also, the app is getting revamped to be compatible with IOS 9 and will get new features from what I've heard. Enjoy!
