    Dear Ablat,
    I don't agree on this way in studying any language Particularily Arabic because: first, it is not a precise way because every language has its own sounds that cann't be transliterated into another. Second, transliteration will weaken your ability of spelling words, so you will not be able to write them correctly. The right way to learn a language is to listen, speak, read and write as per the original Alphabet and Phonetics of the language you are going to learn.
    Best Regards,
    Youssef
