9780415509015: Arabiyyat al-Naas (Part Three): An Advanced Course in Arabic

‘Arabiyyat al-Naas (Part Three): An Advanced Course in Arabic builds further on the groundbreaking approach used in Part One and Part Two of the series. It integrates Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and spoken Levantine in a way specially tailored to the needs of advanced students. Levantine Arabic strongly features in spoken discussions of MSA materials, reflecting authentic practice by native speakers. However, the overall ratio of MSA – the form employed for reading, writing and formal speaking in the Arab world – to Levantine has been increased, supporting students’ mounting need for MSA as they progress further in their education.

This textbook is designed to take learners from the Advanced Low to the Advanced High level according to the ACTFL criteria, and from level B2 to C1 on the CEFR proficiency scales.

Features include:

  • 18 theme-based units covering topics such as Arab minorities; education; religion; love and marriage; the Arab woman; economics; politics; military matters; and the environment
  • thorough coverage of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills with clear grammar explanations and lessons structured to provide opportunities for further practice
  • humorous, realistic dialogues reflecting educated speech among Arabs, to build up strong and practical communication skills
  • attention to issues highly relevant to modern Arab society, encouraging active engagement with the course and further exploration of the themes
  • a rich variety of reading passages from contemporary sources such as Al Jazeera as well as excerpts from the classic works One Thousand and One Nights and Kalila wa Dimna
  • an extensive range of stimulating exercises and activities, including crossword puzzles, root-and-pattern identification exercises, passage completions, and free compositions
  • free companion website (www.routledge.com/cw/younes) with the audio tracks, and texts of the listening passages and answer key.

Developed by a dynamic author team and tested over a number of years at Cornell University, ‘Arabiyyat al-Naas (Part Three) is an essential resource for advanced-level students of Arabic. While primarily designed for classroom use, the accessibility of the course also renders it highly suitable for independent study.

This volume is the final installment of a pioneering three-part series of Arabic textbooks which together provide a complete three-year undergraduate language program.

Munther Younes and Yomna H. Chami both teach Arabic at Cornell University, USA.

Review:

"Arabiyyat al-Naas is a bold, innovative, and sensible approach to teaching Arabic in the 21st century, an integrated approach that weds Standard and Colloquial Arabic and accords them the equal status they deserve. Part Three moves the learner along from the Advanced level to the threshold of Superior." Maher Awad, Senior Lecturer of Arabic, Certified ACTFL & ILR Tester, Rice University, USA

"The approach implemented in Arabiyyat al-Naas is the best in reflecting the status quo of Arabic language and culture...The topics are very dynamic, engaging, challenging and enjoyable. The authors make one of the finest contributions to the field. This is the product of a great effort that deserves the optimum compliments. I have no doubt that this book will positively impact the lives of many learners and teachers as well."Mohammad Al-Masri, Director of the Arabic Flagship Program, University of Oklahoma, USA

"Part Three of Arabiyyat al-Naas is an ideal coursebook to assist learners of Arabic to move from an intermediate to an advanced level. I am impressed by the use of authentic texts which revolve around interesting and varied topics which are both interesting to teach as well as to study. All the activities in each unit are designed to support the learner in all four language skills. All in all, Arabiyyat al-Naas Part Three will provide teachers with excellent communicative material which is actually usable in the classroom." Jonathan Featherstone, Senior Teaching Fellow of Arabic, Edinburgh University, UK.
