The British Council in Riyadh wanted to promote its new conversation courses, which focus on pronunciation and speaking skills.
So it distributed the ‘No Broblem’ direct marketing pack. The instructions taught native Arabic speakers how to pronounce the letter ‘P’ – which Arabs pronounce as ‘B’ due to the lack of a ‘P’ equivalent in the Arabic alphabet – by using a piece of paper held up to their mouths. When the letter ‘P’ is pronounced correctly, the exhale of air blows the paper forward.
