... The content, production and diverse media application places Arabian Sinbad in the forefront of leading professional Arabic teaching tools.

Although it does not claim to be a curriculum or a textbook, the program can be adapted for teaching beginning Arabic in early age environment...

However, I could not block my mind and stop thinking how exciting such a program could be for college undergraduates, and even graduate students...

It is obvious that the program is backed by sound pedagogical philosophy and knowledge of teaching Arabic as a foreign language...

... This program is by far the best that I have seen, particularly for teaching Arabic to children.

It is clearly designed for children, using Modern Standard Arabic, a variety appropriate for instruction all over the Arab world and outside of it.

It is pedagogically sound and attractive to young children....

The DVDs are well designed, have good quality animation and music and best of all, they have an interesting storyline that kids can follow with interest....

... The Arabian Sinbad Treasure Chest provides children, parents and teachers with a wealth of opportunity for learning... I was happy to see vocabulary, vocabulary and vocabulary.... This product has done an excellent job providing teachers with materials based on second language principles...

Depending of the age of the viewer this product can be used in different ways, which makes it even more outstanding... The fact that it can be used independently as well as a classroom tool is particularly appealing... I am really pleased to have had the opportunity to say that The Arabian Sinbad Treasure Chest is worthwhile< and motivating for children.

... I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for producing the wonderful Arabian Sinbad Treasure Chest... I have integrated the series into our curriculum. Our students, ages 18-58, love every bit of it....

It is my hope that every Arabic language classroom will integrate Sinbad's Treasure Chest, from K-12 and at the college level...In addition to my usage of Sinbad in the academic setting, I have made it an integral part of my own family's life...

What I love most about it is the fact that my children actually retain and use the vocabulary they learn.

... I am absolutely thrilled with Arabian Sinbad! ... My students were amazed at how much they could understand! The vignettes on each DVD build the language piece by piece, and the quality of the images, sound and music are excellent...

I am so pleased that these materials have been created, and I am very impressed with the high quality of this program..., and I recommend these materials for home and school use, at any level, without reservation.

... I Highly recommend Arabian Sinbad to educators and parents who want to teach children Arabic in a fun way and retain the language with ease....

This program, by far the best I have seen, particularly for teaching Arabic to young children through colorful storyline with songs, with well designed content and vocabulary. It is pedagogically designed to young children learning Arabic as a foreign language.

I used the Fine Media Group production in class for young children and also with adults at Cal State for beginners and intermediate students, both groups enjoyed the product and benefited from it by memorizing vocabulary, structure and songs...

... The product is definitely very creative and innovative and it successfully teaches children a wide range of Arabic vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure in a fun and engaging way....

When watching Arabian Sinbad, the children are entirely immersed in the Arabic language in an exciting and entertaining way; the adventures that Sinbad, goes through are delightful and captivating, while the songs are really catchy, but educational at the same time....

I highly recommend Arabian Sinbad to all parents and educators who want to teach their children/students the Arabic language.

... The Arabian Sinbad CD's have been an amazing tool in teaching my 2 year old to learn the Arabic language Our first language is English and I would always struggle with the fact that my children will not know the Arabic language early on. Since Arabian Sinbad has been a part of my child's life it has increased her Arabic vocabulary as well as mine and my husband's.... 

She knows all the numbers, colors, letters and many animals in Arabic because of these cartoons. This has been a great teaching tool for our family and I do hope that FMG continues to produce more Arabian Sinbad cartoons.

... Actually I am a student of Arabic myself and I am trying to teach my 4 young children also. Not only can I not find good products online but the one good one I found (your Sindibad) is the best educational cartoon I have seen even amongst western educational cartoons on Nick Jr. and Disney Jr. .... 

I have found the creator of this cartoon to be pretty genius. This cartoon is pretty entertaining for me as well as educational and pretty funny at times..

We recently purchased this set for my 3 yr old so that he can learn Arabic like his father and it is seriously the BEST purchase we have made. It is total immersion learning, but at the age my son is at, that's exactly what he needs.

The great thing about this set is that he can watch the DVD's and be "immersed" in the language, and then when we actually start teaching (and using the included workbooks, CD-ROM, etc), he will already have a head start with pronunciation and the basic words b/c he's already been exposed to them!. My son asks every morning to watch Sinbad, so it's a winner with him too!!
