Présentation de l'éditeur

‘Arabiyyat al-Naas (Part One) offers a groundbreaking introduction to Arabic as it is written and spoken by native speakers. It combines a progressive and rigorous grounding in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) – the form employed for reading, writing and formal speaking – with an innovative integration of the spoken Levantine variety used in everyday situations in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine. Introducing the two simultaneously ‘Arabiyyat al Naas (Part One) uses each in its proper context: Levantine for conversations and MSA for reading and writing activities. In this way, the course efficiently prepares students for the practical realities of learning and "living" Arabic today.

Features include:

  • 21 theme-based units covering all the core topics expected in a first-year Arabic course, such as countries, clothes, colors, family and professions

  • a broad range of stimulating activities and exercises fostering active engagement with the course and the development of comprehension and communication skills

  • comprehensively covers the 5 Cs: communication, culture, connections, comparisons and communities

  • a free DVD filmed on location in Jordan, presenting over 40 videos and incorporating a wide variety of entertaining and realistic scenarios

  • a free companion website ( offering a wealth of additional instructor and student resources, including a teacher’s guide, an introduction to the letters and sounds of Arabic (with audiovisual aid and writing demonstrations), audio recordings of songs and listening passages, video clips, sample tests, an answer key and language games

  • clear explanations of grammatical structures and concepts as they occur in the reading and listening materials to encourage progressive learning and active interaction with the text

  • a user-friendly and vibrant full colour text design, richly illustrated throughout with over 200 illustrations and photographs

  • songs with simple lyrics tied to the themes of the course to help advance vocabulary acquisition and understanding of basic grammatical structures.

Written by a dynamic author team and tested over a number of years at Cornell University, ‘Arabiyyat al-Naas (Part One) will be an essential resource for students beginning to learn Arabic. While primarily designed for classroom use, the accessibility of the course and website also renders it highly suitable for independent study.

This volume is the first in an exciting three-part series of Arabic textbooks which together provide a complete three-year undergraduate language program.

I'm currently using this book in conjunction with a university course, and I feel obliged to provide some sort of counterargument to the previous negative reviews. I don't have the time to write a massive line-by-line defence, but there are a few of points that warrant a fairer hearing. (1) the material is actually very well organised - I find the Unit/Lesson/Exercise structure to be more than sufficient as an overall architecture for the book, and the authors have evidently thought hard about establishing both obvious and subtle transitions from one section to another; (2) transliterations are a crutch, and I get the impression they're not included in this book as a result of a calculated decision rather than an error of omission - I've been learning Arabic with this book for a matter of weeks, and already I feel confident reading Arabic script, albeit with limitations - I very much doubt this would be the case had transliteration been routinely available; (3) the assertions that the book is light on grammar, vocab, and pronunciation strike me as odd - I approached this book with the expectation that it's to be used in close conjunction with a regular course of study and, ultimately, with in-country experience, and I wonder whether previous reviews realise this? We don't learn how to drive a car by memorising exhaustive lists of instructions, but rather we learn through gently amassing experience. Same with language.

Overall, I'd recommend this text highly.

Another disappointment in Arabic textbooks. I agree with the previous reviews regarding lack of organization and other criticisms. It seems that there are a number of recent Arabic textbooks that are taking an approach of what they are calling Formal Arabic through dialogs but are actually mixing MSA with dialect. I believe this sets the student on the path of total confusion, never learning which is which. This book mixes both MSA and dialect without distinguishing which is which. As most similar books, this book also has a number of distractions such as pictures that you first have to figure out what the picture is before you can understand the vocabulary item. It shows a number of books on a bookcase shelf for the work book. If I can't figure out the meaning of the picture in English, how will I learn the Arabic word? Haphazard layout of the book wastes too much time. Alas, another book to sit on my shelf.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent resource for Arabic learners 13 novembre 2013
Par Steve Shermlix - Publié sur
This book has been an excellent introduction to learning Arabic. I feel confident about speaking in a variety of different settings thanks to the Unit structure of this book. Each unit is set in a different place, such as when the main character loses her passport in the airport or when she is looking for a place to live in when she arrives in the Middle East. This approach to teaching the language by immersing the reader in the story of the main character is unique and I find it to be very effective. The book teaches the background of vocabulary and grammar which can then be applied to different settings. For example, although there is no specific unit in the book about going to a shop run by Egyptians, ordering a burrito with all different types of toppings, and then explaining to them that you are a student at the nearby university and you are studying Arabic because your father speaks it, I was able to do exactly that thanks to the solid foundation of Arabic that I am building through this book.

Transliterations are unnecessary - the book comes with audio recordings as well as videos, powerpoint slides, and writing exercises. These resources help you pronounce the words effectively, but in my experience I have found that perfect pronunciation is not the goal at this stage in the learning of a language anyway.

I would recommend this book highly to anyone who is focused on grasping the Arabic language and particularly mastering spoken conversation, which seems to be emphasized in this course. As someone who skates by on doing the bare minimum of work and not really reviewing the vocabulary, I am surprised by how my skills in this language are growing and I look forward to where this course will take me. I am confident that I will have a functional ability to communicate in Arabic in a short time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun, Effective, way to learn Arabic 5 septembre 2014
Par Miguel Arambula - Publié sur
I used this textbook this summer during a Arabic summer intensive language program with absolutely no previous experience in Arabic. I really love this book, I'm not totally sure why but I will try to a name a few details that I feel the other reviewers have left out. The book has a very wonderful incremental approach to it that is extremely well thought out. For example, the book opens like Arabic books do, from the back. The Unit and Lesson titles start in English but once you have the tools to understand and read them in Arabic, the reliance on English as a medium of communication within the book is slowly removed.

My belief in effectively learning a foreign language is that there is delicate balance between being too comfortable and drowning in your new linguistic environment. The most productive space is the place somewhere between the two extremes where you feel challenged but are given supports to work yourself through difficulties. I think that is partly why I found the book so engaging, I would be challenged with something unfamiliar, and then like a puzzle, try to figure out the clues that the book had left me to figure it out. It was empowering to figure things out, all the more if they book didn't explicitly tell you how to do something. Not all of my questions were answered immediately and being able to hold on to a certain amount of uncertainty seems an important part in actually learning a language. After using this book intensively for eight weeks I shortly moved to Egypt where I have been able to navigate myself with a certain degree of confidence and composure. As far as my newly arrived expatriates are concerned, I am fluent!

So, back to the textbook. It immediately immerses you Arabic numbers and letters and uses them throughout the book. Keeps you challenged throughout with good activities, always productive and slightly uncomfortable! And, encouraged by your own quick progress you will be motivated to keep up your efforts, which is the real ingredient of success anyway, your own energy, attitude, and attentiveness. I feel like this book is really a gift. I have gained a lot learning from it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is an amazing book! 8 août 2014

This textbook is an amazing learning tool for anyone taking a beginning course in Arabic. It teaches you Modern Standard Arabic, as well as the colloquial language that is actually spoken in conversation. The majority of American universities only teach MSA, which isn't actually what people speak in Arabic countries. This textbook allows students to learn the spoken language and MSA, side-by-side, in order for the students to communicate in both the written and colloquial form.
I highly recommend this book. It is well-organized, providing multiple exercises with videos, recordings and reading passages in order for students to learn vocab and grammar while developing their listening/comprehension and writing skills. After using this book, I feel that I have an incredibly strong foundation for the next level of my Arabic studies.
