The more I delve into Bernard Koshaba's book Arabic Express the more I appreciate the thought which has gone into it. Arabic Express is two books in one. It offers both standard Arabic as well as spoken Arabic of the commonly used Levantine dialect. ...
bs. Modern Standard Arabic, which is the version reserved for reading and writing, receives an equally thorough treatment in parallel to the spoken. You are then in a perfect position to compare, contrast and use each in its correct setting, for its exact purpose.This textbook is the first to present spoken Arabic and its grammar, with the great facilitation of the Roman script, in a comprehensive, systematic and coherent manner, alongside Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), which is presented in the book in Arabic script (MSA being not spoken in everyday life and reserved for literature and the media). All units contain listening-speaking activities for language practice, pronunciation and language modelling purposes.The textbook's material has produced literate students and native-like speakers of Arabic, which can be attested by the directors at UNSW Institute of languages, where the author has been teaching for over a decade. The book has been addressing the language needs of Anglo-Australians, as well as those of descendents of the Arab diaspora. Lebanese is an advantageous Levantine dialect to learn in the English-speaking world, because it is one of those better understood in the Arabic speaking world, thanks to film, song and dubbed foreign series' diffusion.The book has been an academic and linguistic labour of love, feedback, adjustment and fine tuning in the classroom over the last few years. Its learner-friendly style shapes its versatility, making it ideal for use by independent learners, in high school, and in a university classroom.If you want a complete Arabic course, enabling you to read, write and speak like a native speaker, then this is the book for you.‘ARABIC EXPRESS’ EDGEAll AUDIO FILES FREE from: bernardkhoshaba.comIt is designed for fun, simple and quick progressIt has a UNIQUE structure:-The first half of each unit is devoted to Arabic for everyday interaction with Arab speakers (Spoken Arabic)-The second half of each unit is devoted to Arabic as it is in written communication, the media, and literature (Modern Standard Arabic)It has UNIQUE indexes:-Trilingual (English, spoken & standard Arabic) glossaries-Show you how to convert Modern Standard Arabic into dialect (and vice-versa)-Give a comprehensive range of verb models and rules for conjugating spoken Arabic verbs-Present an all-tense standard & dialect verb comparisonIt contains a balance of:-reading, writing, listening & speaking activities;-culturally, contextually, and sequentially based spoken language dialogues & Arabic script texts
