Reading the Arab World

A Content-Based Textbook for Intermediate to Advanced Learners of Arabic


Reading the Arab World (Routledge, 2021) by Yehia Mohamed allows students to learn how the Arabic language works in the real world. The content-based textbook for intermediate to advanced students is divided into ten units over 378 pages and is designed to enhance language skills through exposure to authentic texts.

This textbook is an ideal resource for students of Arabic as a second or heritage language working at or above the Intermediate-High level on the ACTFL proficiency scale. As it is particularly aimed at Advanced and Post-Advanced levels, it is well-suited for post-instructional language courses. Students will be able to continue developing their reading, writing, speaking, and critical thinking skills as they learn about contemporary issues shaping the Arab world through a range of authentic texts.
