Arabic: ii/ee at the end of a word/phrase.
What country is the lady speaker in lesson 1 from please? I am quite curious about the pronunciation of what I call ee at the end of "words". The character has two dots underneath what could be described as a "u" in a sort of mirror image. Ian
The lady speaker is a computer. I'm almost sure that they use the international phonetic alphabet or some other way to program the words by specifying each exact sound then let the computer imitate a voice speaking. They do this so that they can add or remove new material digitally without having to go into a studio and record a voice every time they want to modify the course.
Thanks Scipio_V I spent 4 years in Dubai and had previously taught myself up to about lesson 7 in Linguaphone's Arabic. I was told that the very little Arabic I used was clear and what I heard an hour + ago did not sound right. But then once when I tried to speaking to some Morrocans I just could not get my Arabic to work.
