Description: Arabiyyat al Naas, Part One offers a groundbreaking introduction to Arabic as it is written and spoken by native speakers. It combines a progressive and rigorous grounding in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), the form employed for reading, writing and formal speaking, with an innovative integration of the spoken Levantine variety used in everyday situations in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine. Introducing the two simultaneously and seamlessly building on their shared features, Arabiyyat al Naas, Part One uses each in its proper context: Levantine for conversations and MSA for reading and writing activities. In this way, the course efficiently prepares students for the practical realities of learning and "living" Arabic today. Features include:Twenty-one theme-based units covering all the core topics expected in a first-year Arabic course, such as countries, clothes, colours, family and professionsA broad range of stimulating activities and exercises geared towards fostering active engagement with the course and the simultaneous development of comprehension and communication skillsA free DVD filmed on location in Jordan, presenting over forty videos and incorporating a wide variety of entertaining and realistic scenarios to help students build up diverse vocabulary and effective speaking and listening skills A free companion website (http://www.routledge.com/cw/younes) offering a wealth of additional instructor and student resources, including a teacher’s guide, an introduction to the letters and sounds of Arabic (with audiovisual aid and writing demonstrations), audio recordings of songs and listening passages, video clips, sample tests, an answer key and language gamesClear explanations of grammatical structures and concepts as they occur in the reading and listening materials to encourage progressive learning and active interaction with the textA user-friendly and vibrant text design with full colour, richly illustrated throughout with over two hundred illustrations and photosSongs with simple lyrics tied to the themes of the course to help advance vocabulary acquisition and understanding of basic grammatical structures.Written by a dynamic author team and tested over a number of years at Cornell University, Arabiyyat al Naas, Part One will be an essential resource for students beginning to learn Arabic.While primarily designed for classroom use, the accessibility of the course and website also renders it highly suitable for independent study.This volume is the first in an exciting three-part series of Arabic textbooks which together provide a complete three-year undergraduate language program. This pioneering series will systematically help learners build the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing while also introducing them to Arab culture and the history and geography of the modern Arab world.
