Item Description...
This book: develops all language-related skills including reading, listening, speaking, writing, and cultural knowledge; immediately incorporates extensive use of authentic materials for reading, listening, and grammatical practice, relating abstract grammatical concepts to practical skills; presents narrative-based content through audio and video media rather than written text to develop meaning-focused language processing skills, utilizing two main characters and their extended family; develops readings skills through the use of composed texts derived from the main narrative and authentic texts from newspapers and journals; introduces grammar using the techniques of spiraling and inference, challenging learners to discover the grammar of the language by means of analogy, problem solving, and educated guessing; introduces Egyptian colloquial Arabic through scenes based on the main narrative to promote the use of shared vocabulary and structure of the two registers, increasing listening comprehension skills; and contains Arabic-English and English-Arabic glossaries and reference charts as well as a grammar index.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Ultimate Source  Nov 26, 2008
This is the standart source for learning Arabic. With enough effort you can learn Arabic by yourself using the books in these series.

But remember, if you do not know the Arabic Alphabet, you should buy the Alif-Baa book first, by the same authors. It is also as good and comes with DVDs.
Al-Kitaab Part 1  Oct 9, 2008
This is a well designed textbook. Heavy on vocabulary, but presented in context. The DVD that accompanies it is very helpful for pronunciation and listening practice. Assumes a knowledge of Arabic script and the 150 vocabulary words presented in Alif Baa: Introduction to Arabic Letters and Sounds, so if you haven't already gone through Alif Baa, I recommend starting there.
Great book.  Sep 25, 2008
Great book. Despite it being a used one, it still consisted all it's dvd as needed, for almost half the price of my bookstore price. Thanks a lot!
Al-Kitaab  Sep 21, 2008
I but a lot of books and I do not expect to "review" my purchase each time. If I am swindled you will hear from me, otherwise thank you very much and don't bother me. Do you "preview" my response?
Al-Kitaab fii Ta'allum al-'Arabiyya with DVDs (Part 1)  Sep 7, 2008
No book, CD, DVD or other will ever teach anyone a language. However, this is the best that I have ever seen (but would still recommend using other materials to complement this combination of textbook/DVDs). The only disadvantage in my case is that it relies heavily on Egyptian Arabic instead of pure Modern Standard Arabic (but does throw in some regional dialect differences now and then, including that of Iraq). One should start with the "Alif Ba" series and buy the corresponding "Answer Keys". As good as it is, it was written to be used in a classroom setting; personally, I am using it for self-study and get help from Iraqi friends. Like any language, there is a need for much repetition and most people will have moments of frustration when they are tempted to quit. I congratulate the authors on an outstanding job. (One person I know, who may have a knack for languages but is a native speaker of English, is now able to hold basic conversation with Iraqis after ten months of study and has not even started Books 2 and 3!)
