Easy Arabic Reader is based on the principle that the best way to learn a language is to start reading it immediately. Aimed at adult learners, but also suitable for teenagers and older children, this book is aimed at complete beginners, up to intermediate-level language learners and features engaging readings of progressive difficulty that will allow you to rapidly build your comprehension.
This book, divided into three parts, begins with a series of stories about an Arab-American as he takes a tour of the Middle East as a graduation present. In the second part, readers are introduced to key figures of Arab History, from Saladin, who fought the Crusades, to Said Ouita, theMoroccan Olympic runner. Finally, learners encounter adapted stories from tradition sources like the 1001 Arabian Nights, with a humorous modern slant.
Complementing this is a free-access website provides recordings of many of the readings contained in the book - providing learners with a perfect way to recognise unknown words and improve their pronunciation.
Easy Arabic Reader is suitable for older children (KS4 / 14+) and adults.
