The Key to Arabic Book One adopts an innovative method
in teaching the skills of reading and writing Arabic to
absolute beginners from a broad age range by using
a gradual, assimilative phonic approach. Extensive written
exercises give students ample opportunity to put into practice
the skills they have learned, enabling them to build up
confidence in reading and writing vocalised Arabic text.
The various vowel sounds and other markings are colour coded
to assist the reader further. The book concludes with some
short passages of dialogue to help the learner begin to develop
confidence in speaking.
