Is a lively and imaginative work which aims to teach spoken modem standard Arabic. with particular appeal to the teenage student. Unlike most contemporary Arabic textbooks which concentrate primarily on written Arabic and the complexities of its grammar. often to the exclusion of the spoken genre. this book aims instead to encourage the learner to start using the language from the outset through spoken communication. Grammar is assimilated progressively through carefully graded lesson materials and easy exercises, the emphasis always being placed on making the language relevant and vibrant for the student. Any student, having mastered the Arabic alphabet should find this book easy to use, and discover the enjoyment in learning this challenging language.
