Jeunesse Sans Frontiere introduces Arabic for Youth
in the highly successful Al-Habib Affas
series. This modern curriculum will take non-speakers of Arabic on a journey of learning from the basics to a level equivalent with native speakers by consolidating and broadening their range of language skills. The classic Arabic language is presented clearly and inclusively to meet the needs of learners living in the west. The Al-Habib Affas
series consists of three systematic divisions: reading, conversation, and Arab culture.
- Reading: Reading skills are developed by close examination of authentic reading passages and regular vocabulary exercises focused on word building techniques. The Al-Habib Affas series includes classical Arabic excerpts without the distractions of spoken dialects.
- Conversation: A careful balance of authentic and scripted listening materials builds conversational skills with native Arabic speakers.
- Arab Culture: Al-Habib Affas students are presented with Arabic and Western culture patterns to further understand the role of this timeless language.
Each section has specific objectives enabling the learner to generate language accurately in a variety of syntactical structures, ranging from typical exercises to practical conversations. This curriculum also develops fluency by communication, discovery, realization, and finally application. The Al-Habib Affas
series helps Arabic learners confidently deal with different types of writing, listening, reading, and spoken text.
This series comes in 4 levels and contains: textbook, workbook, and teacher guide.
