A Textbook for Arabic: Part Three
Kristen Brustad, Mahmoud Al-Batal, and Abbas Al-Tonsi
The final and most advanced volume of the Al-Kitaab Arabic textbook program, Part Three is intended to help learners reach a superior level of proficiency by expanding vocabulary and providing paragraph-level activities in reading, writing, and speaking. More than thirty authentic texts by writers from across the Arab world address a range of political, social, religious, and literary themes and represent a range of genres, styles, and periods. Although the book focuses primarily on modern Arabic, classical Arabic texts have been incorporated into some of the lessons to introduce students to the continuity of the language throughout its history.
Kristen Brustad is an associate professor of Arabic at the University of Texas at Austin.
