Urban Arabic BOOK 1: Beginners’ guide to the Arabic alphabet

Urban Arabic BOOK 1: Beginners’ guide to the Arabic alphabet

With this book, you will learn to read, write and speak your first Arabic words. Urban Arabic: A Beginner's Guide to the Alphabet is the first book in Saifi Institute for Arabic Language's Urban Arabic series. It provides the foundation necessary to learn the Arabic language, whether it's the Formal Arabic used throughout the Arab world or the Levantine variety spoken in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Palestine.
Developed by teachers for learners, this book takes an innovative classroom-tested approach to the Arabic alphabet – including intuitive shape-based letter families, pronunciation described using the Chat Alphabet (rather than transliteration) often used by Arabs themselves to communicate online, and a specialized typeface developed to mimic handwriting and everyday usage.
It contains simple in-depth instruction, practical exercises (including an answer key for self-study) and an audio CD with both Formal and Levantine Arabic pronunciation.
