Vocabulary out of context

I was very excited when I saw this audiobook. I am a qualitified language teacher and have always thought that not enough emphasis is placed on allowing students to obtain a varied and relevant vocabulary bank. The vocabulary has, however, to be learnt in context to have any meaning. This audio book certainly does not do that. It consists of a female voice saying a word and a male repeating it in arabic - once. The worlds are not grouped into funtional groups. 'Dress' is followed by 'fire' and 'cake' is followed by 'magazine' and then by 'roof'. Very bizarre abstract nouns are introduced at an early stage...'the apetite', 'the feeling'. I have already obtained a basic understanding of Arabic sounds and sentence structure. You will certainly need that before embarking upon this tape. Oh - and as far as I listened, all the verbs that were spoken were done so from the male perspective & verb agreement. None with female. And the background music was too strident for my tastes. I can't imagine I will every really listen to this. If the vocabulary had been spoken/presented in logical groups it might have been of use to me, but alas it was not and therefore it is not! Disappointed.

The music...

The #@%$#^ music in the background is just too distracting to be able to absorb even a modicum of the language.

Note to editors: those of us who desire to learn a language aren't in the market for background music.

Note to potential purchasers: save your $$$

What is the use of this?

It is hard to imagine what one might use this for. Just random lists of words spoken quickly and often unintelligbly.
