About this Item

88 pages. The Best Arabic Comprehension Method on the Planet. Never has explaining the underpinnings of Arabic been so explicit, so clear. Written for a wide audience, with this book English speakers will actually enjoy learning to understand the Arabic language. The author gives readers the basic tools they need to comprehend Arabic in a simple, concise way. Virtually anyone can read the book. Written in first person plural, instructional material like this, that reads as easily as a narrative, is hard to come by these days. As a Foreign Service Officer and diplomat, Taalib spent the latter part of his career at the U. S. Embassy in Cairo. He made time to decipher the language as he traveled throughout Egypt and the region, Jordan, Israel, Yemen, Morocco, Kenya, Uganda, and Nigeria. After returning to the U. S. in 2008, he decided to enhance his cultural experiences by training as a Global TESOL instructor. He studied under the renown Global TESOL professor, Dr. Sarah A. Shope. In his book, English Brain Arabic Learner, Taalib uses a brain-centered approach for teaching adults basic comprehension of Arabic. Many would-be Arabic learners fail to learn the basics of the language because of simple points. Many instructors push learners too hard sometimes just to memorize the letters without giving them proper explanation of what the letter basics are or even why they are formed. They ignore the perceived mystery associated with Arabic and they dont address the myth about it being such a complicated language to learn. Having spoken, read, written, and listened to English all of our lives, naturally our conscious minds would be wary to intake any new and unfamiliar language, not just Arabic. We use approaches adult brains can accept easily as opposed to using force to make it do something against its will. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781432780975

About this title

Synopsis:

English Brain Arabic Learner exposes the simplicity of Arabic and gives the learner heart to stay in the challenge of learning the language.  This book was written by a trained Global TESOL instructor after two years of practical classroom application.  The methodology works.  English Brain Arabic Learner is a clear and concise presentation of the Arabic language and how it can find its way into the brains of individuals whose linguistic patterns have relied solely on English. While many individuals have a desire to tackle Arabic, a good percentage of them become discouraged and convinced that the task is too difficult.
 
The methodology is simple.  It covers each component of language separately, sounds (vowels), alphabets (letters), punctuation, and pronunciation.  By understanding the role each plays in Arabic, the learner can recognize and use (reading) words quicker.
 
Many would-be Arabic learners fail to learn the basics of the language because of simple points. Many instructors push learners too hard sometimes just to memorize letters without giving them proper explanation of letter basics.  They fail to show how all written language forms share a linguistic relationship. They ignore the perceived mystery associated with Arabic and they don't address the myth about it being such a complicated language to learn.  Adults are perfectly capable of learning how to read and write Arabic.  English Brain Arabic Learner shows how.
 
The author explains the underpinnings of Arabic in an, easy concise way.  Taalib uses a brain-centered approach for teaching adults basic comprehension of Arabic.  Having spoken, read, written, and listened to English all of our lives, our conscious minds become wary of any new and unfamiliar language, not just Arabic. The book focuses on approaches adult brains can accept easily as opposed to using force to make it do something against its will.

About the Author:

Mu Octavis Taalib, a professional Global TESOL instructor, teaches Arabic in the Atlanta metro area. He is a graduate of Hampton University in Virginia where he honed his professional skills after serving a four-year stint in the U. S. Air Force during the Vietnam War era.  A former U.S. foreign service officer and diplomat, he has authored four books, including English Brain Arabic Learner (Outskirts Press, 2011).
While living and working in the Middle East and Africa, he took time to decipher classical Arabic and learn the workings of the many, assorted cultures found there.  These studies have been the impetus and stimulation to writing his latest book, Life is No Mystery: Natural Knowledge and the Human Birthright.
Describing himself as an avid culturalist, the author grew up in Eastern North Carolina among six siblings.  His interests include teaching, community involvement, billiards, and geopolitics.
