Reviews


 
"The new edition of Mastering Arabic is particularly exciting. The first edition has long been an oasis in a dry landscape. The quirky cartoons, the straightforward explanations and the clear layout have been very good reasons for teachers to go back to it continually as their textbook of choice... this new edition has confirmed Mastering Arabic's status as the most suitable book for beginners. It is ideal for anyone who wants to offer an enjoyable course that will take their students from zero to lower intermediate level." - Haroon Shirwani, Independent Schools Modern Language Association Newsletter
 
"It is so refreshing to see a language series so well thought-out, which goes really in-depth yet at the same time is easy and enjoyable to follow. I tried several arabic learning materials before finding this one, and it is by far the best on the market!" - Mark Trevarton
