Beginners of Arabic, rejoice!
on 20 January 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Bite-Size Arabic is a very digestible introduction to teaching basic Arabic literacy. The book is dedicated entirely to teaching the Arabic alphabet, but it also manages to introduce a fair amount of carefully selected vocabulary (fewer than 140 items of some of the most commonly used words in Modern Standard Arabic) ) and minimal grammar. Many of the same words are introduced repeatedly for reinforcement in simple sentences instead of fragmented phrases. I love how the book gradually introduces the different letters in logical groups with plenty of reinforcing exercises (with answer key) following each unit. The book has an appealing layout and is structured in such a way that is easy to follow without overwhelming the learner. It can work beautifully in a classroom setting, but it is also the perfect book for independent learners.
