NEW AND IMPROVED DIGITAL FORMAT!

Since the release of the second edition of Alif Baa with DVDs in the fall of 2004, thousands of Arabic language learners have benefited from the integrated textbook and DVDs. This new version ― Alif Baa with Multimedia ― functions even better and features a new and improved digital format.

The content of Alif Baa with Multimedia, Second Edition, including the text and all of the audio and video on the disk, is exactly the same as that of Alif Baa with DVDs, Second Edition. Only the format of the disk has changed so that all files will be easy to play using the free Adobe Flash Player. All units are now included on only one disk. Teachers and students may use both versions of the textbook side-by-side in the classroom and notice no difference in content or appearance. It should not affect the learning experience or require teachers to do any additional preparation.
