Summary

This is the first-ever series of graded stories for beginning and intermediate adult learners of Arabic as a foreign language. It is based on the following pedagogical principles: 1. Gradual introduction of vocabulary and structure, in context. 2. Frequent recycling of both. 3. A huge volume of comprehensible input.

The 24 stories in this audiobook are divided into 6 levels of 4 stories each. Levels 1 to 3 are for beginners; levels 4 to 6 are for intermediate students. The stories range from 200 to 400 words.

Please Note: This audiobook is in Arabic.

Extremely useful

Would you consider the audio edition of Sahlawayhi 1 to be better than the print version?

Yes. I have the print versions of this series also, but sometimes the whole pages of Arabic can look a little daunting to a beginner. Listening to them is much easier than reading them. The books can be useful though if you're struggling to catch a word/want to look up a word in the dictionary but can't hear it properly to spell it.

Any additional comments?

Recommended for any MSA students

Excellent!

Perfect book for folks who have studied beginners level arabic (about a year or so of university). The text is read SLOWLY and uses pretty basic vocab. at first. New vocab is introduced gradually and the words repeat themselves quite a bit so you can usually figure them out (or if need be look them up). The thing I liked most about the book is that the stories are FUN, IMAGINATIVE and HUMOROUS - a refreshing change from the usual arabic reading drills. A student from America goes to Egypt to study and meets an ancient Egyptian queen in an underground chamber while going on a walk around the pyramids. She wants to marry him and... well I won't spoil the story for you. There are some references to political figures (including a taxi driver who says "George Bush no good!", and an exchange student from Cuba who says that she's in love with Fidel Castro) but it's clearly all in good fun. All in all the book is slow enough to be comprehensible, graded enough to be challenging, and imaginitive enough to be fun. Highly recommended for students of Arabic!

Good Tool

Good stories to learn Arabic with. The narrator gradually picks up speed and the level of vocabulary met my skill level (beginner to intermediate)

A good tool for learners

This audio book is a good tool for Arabic language learners.

It is dedicated to basic users of Arabic, even though a certain knowledge of its basic grammar and syntax rules is required.

Stories are fun and gets you to continue listening.

The most remarkable moment is when Sam meets the Queen of Egypt (Malikat Misr) and they catch a bus. Then they are asked for their tickets and Sam says...
