How to use the flashcards
You can study the flashcards online or download the free BYKI Light software to your computer. The flashcards will enable you to hear, learn, recognise and produce the vocabulary (using the on-screen Arabic keyboard included). In addition you can study the individual Arabic letters making up a particular word (using the "Alphabet" tab). The premium BYKI Delux software will give you access to further features including tests, dictations and games.
The Mastering Arabic flashcards do not include the short Arabic vowels (with the exception of the doubling sign shadda). This is to enable you to start recognising Arabic words without vowels from the beginning, since this is how they are usually written. The audio will remind you of the pronunciation. The Arabic answers should also be keyed without vowels, and the flashcards have been set up to accept as correct the word keyed with or without shadda.
Other features of the flashcards are explained by pressing the "Help" button (a question mark in the top right of the flashcard).
We hope these flashcards will be an invaluable companion to your Mastering Arabic course, both for unit-by-unit study of vocabulary and for ongoing review.
