DVD of Levantine Videos for Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program
From Alif Baa to Al-Kitaab Part Three
Kristen Brustad, Mahmoud Al-Batal, and Abbas Al-Tonsi
One of the distinguishing features of the Al-Kitaab program is its introduction of dialects alongside Modern Standard Arabic. In the dialogue sections of each of the four volumes and on the multimedia, students can follow the story of Maha and Khalid in the Egyptian dialect. The DVD of Levantine Videos for Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program provides comparable dialect videos now in the Levantine dialect. Filmed entirely in Damascus, these video dialogues have been "translated" to reflect the greater Levantine language and culture and follow the parallel story of two new characters, Nasreen and Tariq. The DVD features Levantine versions of all the dialogue clips that correspond to each of the program's four volumes, from Alif Baa through Al-Kitaab Part Three. Third editions of the Al-Kitaab textbooks incorporate these videos alongside the Egyptian videos throughout.
