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 (www.routledge.com/cw/younes) 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent resource for Arabic learners 13 novembre 2013
Par Steve Shermlix - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.

The text book is fantastic. It is as was recommended the best Arabic text book I've come across and I am enjoying learning from it. I have learned Modern Standard Arabic to an intermediate level and I bought this book to learn Levantine Arabic as well as improving on my Modern Standard.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I expected much more 14 octobre 2013
Par Gwilym - Publié sur Amazon.com
Being interested in Arabic in general and Levantine Arabic in particular, I had been waiting eagerly for this book ever since it was announced and pre-ordered it from Amazon.co.uk. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a major disappointment. Below I describe why I did not like, then finish with a few alternatives if you're interested in spoken Levantine Arabic

- Awkward language. The book says it will teach both the spoken and the written language. While it makes an average effort to teach the written language, the "spoken" language is not the actual spoken language but a very formal version of it.

- VERY weak on grammar. Arabic isn't an easy language and it's grammar can be complicated. Even more so if you attempt to teach both the spoken and the written language as their grammatical systems often differ. The course deals with this by pretending grammar doesn't exist. The very basic grammar found in the book and on the website is very thin; virtually any Arabic course on the market is stronger on grammar.

- Absolutely no explanation of pronunciation. As it happens, I already knew how to read and pronounce Arabic but the beginner who doesn't won't get any help from this course.

- No transliterations. Of course you eventually need to learn to read the Arabic alphabet if you want to progress, but most courses in the spoken language at least feature some transliteration for those whose main interest is the spoken language. Not so in this course.

- Very limited vocabulary. A course for £45 that contains only 800 words? Most of Routledge's Colloquial courses contain at least twice that number for a lower price. I know this is only the first book out of three, but that is no excuse. For this price, you're entitled to more.

To sum up, this book comes at a rather high price and contains too little of everything. No help with the pronunciation, almost no grammar and far too little vocabulary. On top of all that, it does not deliver on its promise to teach the spoken language. I really expected so much more from this course. The two starts are for the videos that are quite interesting, but that is still far too little.

As I hope you won't make the same mistake I did and buy this course, I'll finish the review with some suggestions of courses I'd recommend instead. None of them is outstanding, but all of them are much, much better in every way than this course and most of them are cheaper as well. If you want to learn spoken Arabic, ignore this course and consider one of the following:

Speaking Arabic by J. Elihay. It is everything that Arabiyyat al-Naas promises to be: genuine, spoken Levantine Arabic, with an extensive vocabulary and in-depth but accessible explanations of grammar. The emphasis is on Palestinian Arabic, but it gives extensive comparisons with both Lebanese and Syrian Arabic. As I point out in my review on Amazon.com, it has a problem in that the vocabulary is rather disorganized. Despite that, it is by far the best course on spoken Arabic.Speaking Arabic: A Course in Conversational Eastern Arabic (Palestinian)

Kullu Tamam by M. Woidich. A course in spoken Egyptian Arabic, so not ideal if Levantine Arabic is what you want to learn. Still, a much better course than Arabiyyat al-Naas. A very intense course, it would have benefited from having the same content spread out over two books as many learners feel it would need longer dialogues and more examples. I agree with that, but it still contains much, much more than Arabiyyat al-Naas. Much more vocabulary and much more grammar explanations. kullu tamam!: An Introduction to Egyptian Colloquial Arabic

Ultimate Arabic. Another course teaching both the formal language and the spoken language. My main complaint with this course is that it is a bit too short. However, it is still a bit above Arabiyyat al-NaasUltimate Arabic Beginner-Intermediate.

Al-Kitaab. An extensive series from Georgetown University with several books. Just like Arabiyyat al-Naas, it teaches both the standard and the spoken language, including spoken Levantine Arabic. As many reviewers point out, it suffers from bad organization. Still, I think it's treatment of the language, and its grammar as well as its vocabulary, are better than Arabiyyat al-Naas.Al-Kitaab fii Ta<SUP>c</SUP>allum al-<SUP>c</SUP>Arabiyya, Third Edition: Al-Kitaab fii Tacallum al-cArabiyya - A Textbook for Beginning Arabic: Part 1, 3rd Edition (Arabic Edition)

Par A Foxy Man - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was a student of one the authors and we used this textbook for our course. At the time I was taking it, we used a provided PDF version of the proofs. Between the class and textbook, I learned almost nothing. I mainly used outside sources. The textbook is unorganized and lacks transliterations (which are useful while first studying pronunciation) for most of the book. The audio material is hard to understand (although this may be due to the way they were delivered). إن شاء الله
