Hoda Barakat's Sayyidi wa Habibi
The Authorized Abridged Edition for Students of Arabic
Laila Familiar, Editor
Sayyidi wa Habibi (My Master and My Love) is a novel by acclaimed Lebanese author Hoda Barakat, abridged in this volume for learners of Arabic at the advanced low proficiency level. Designed as a supplementary text that adds variety and fun to a regular course on Arabic, it is complete with exercises that guide learners through the story and help them improve their Arabic skills, introducing learners of the language to the world of contemporary Arabic literature and improving their knowledge of Arabic culture.
Laila Familiar is a lecturer in Arabic at the University of Texas at Austin. She has taught language and content-based courses in several renowned programs of Arabic, and was director of the Arabic Summer Institute at the University of Texas at Austin, 2012-13. She has a Master's degree in Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language from the American University in Cairo.
"If this book had only contained the abridged novel Sayyidi wa Habibi it would have represented that rare literary text that one could teach to students of Arabic at the advanced low level. With all of the additional materials (cultural and historical) and exercises (to be done before, during, and after reading the text itself), it becomes an indispensable tool for Arabic instructors who want to expose their students to literature in their first few years of study. I would also recommend it highly to independent learners of Arabic who have already achieved the appropriate level."—Christopher Stone, associate professor of Arabic, Department of Classical and Oriental Studies, Hunter College
